Enough with Skrillex and all this “wub wub zoom zoom” crap. Wouldn’t you kids like to hear a nice song with a melody?

It’s knowing that your door is always open

And your path is free to walk

That makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag

Rolled up and stashed behind your couch

And it’s knowing I’m not shackled

By forgotten words and bonds

And the ink stains that have dried upon some line

That keeps you in the backroads

By the rivers of my mem'ry

That keeps you ever gentle on my mind

Oh how I want you, oh how I need you,
I sure’ve been missing you, since I’ve been gone,
And if I only knew that you missed me too,
I would come back, come back to you

I need a friendly face, someone who knows me well,
My heart’s a lonely place, it’s just an empty shell
Well I would gladly give everything I own,
Just to be with you in that place called home

If I could come back, come back, come back to you,
If I could come back, come back, come back to you,
If I could come back, come back, come back to you,
Come back to you

So if you’re listening, I hope you’re listening,
So just know I’m missing, your company,
If I had a single clue, that you missed me too,
I would come back, come back to you,

I would come back come back to you,
I’d come back, baby to you

Artist: Glen Campbell
Track: Galveston
Album: Galveston
Label: Capitol
Year: 1969

I remember when I was really little, like 6 or 7, this song would make me totally sad. but in a dramatic way… epic sad… standing on a mountaintop in a cape sad.  When it came on I would demand that everyone around shut up so that we could all listen to the song and be sad together.  I was an emo little fuck.

I also thought that the girl’s name was Galveston, which didn’t strike me as odd at the time.
