I was in a bit of odd state, what with the large quantity of really good angst-ridden filks afloat these past few days. To tears I have been brought time and again, over these powerful words set in song. Thank you everyone, for everything.


Memories
a filk of Goodbye
my apologies to Hootie & the Blowfish, and to you, the reader


The next strip used to be two days away
The end has come and he's sketching someone far away.
I never thought the day would come
When we would see Fred's hand move on
Weaving a new world filled with loving frustration

And now I can't deny
Memories last forever
But I don't want to leave
I'd miss the passion in your eyes
I know you'll be here to filk the day we say goodbye

Now this world's another important place that I call a home
Angsting over verse with Ais
But I can't quit, cause my house has no soul, no
I just wanna talk with you
I wanna find inspiration
Verses of love, Take up this pen now
Can't put it down so easily
For now the night is young
Let's reminisce together
For even with the pain there are memories
So we'll be alright

I know you'll be here to sing the day we say goodbye

When I first read you I couldn't write anymore
But you fueled my dreams and you made me see
That I was hiding from the sun
And now my muse runs free
And now I can't deny, memories last forever
But I don't want to leave, I'd miss the passion in your eyes
So baby the night's young, let's reminisce together
For even with the pain there's memories
And we'll be alright

I know you'll be here to save the day we say goodbye
Don't say goodbye, memories, goodbye

Hootie & the Blowfish
Goodbye

Tomorrow used to be a day away
Now love is gone and you're into someone far away.
I never thought the day would come
When I would see his hand, not mine,
holding onto yours because I could not find the time.

Now I can't deny
nothing lasts forever
I don't want to leave
and I see the tear drops in your eyes
I don't want to live to see the day we say goodbye

Now there comes another part of life that I call alone
sitting at a bar with Chris
and I can't leave 'cause my house ain't no home, no.
I just wanna touch you girl
I wanna feel you close to me
Without your love I would give up now
and walk away so easily.
So maybe while we're young
We'll figure out together
that even with the pain, there's a remedy
and we'll be all right

I don't want to live to see the day we say goodbye

When I first met you I couldn't love anyone
but you stole my dreams and you made me see
that I can walk under the sun
and I can still be me
and now I can't deny nothing lasts forever.
But I don't want to leave and see the teardrops in your eyes
So baby while we're young let's figure out together
that even with the pain there's a remedy
and we'll be all right.

I don't want to live to see the day we say goodbye,
we say goodbye, oh goodbye, goodbye.
