MY FIRST LYRICS POST

Di ko alam kung bakit ko pino-post ito. Di naman to yung pinakikinggan ko lately.

But in any case, this is Pearl Jam at its best for me. Given the upbeat tune and the super-sad lyrics plus the visions of unrealized love full of regrets as well as the reality of life lived in "phases", the song is full of the dualistic nature of life in various combinations. My problem is I just can't seem to remember the melody. This one's for you manang. Just relish in the vitality of springing emotions.

Here it goes.

LAST KISS

Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She's gone to heaven so I've got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

We were out on a date in my daddy's car,
We hadn't driven very far.
There in the road straight ahead,
A car was stalled, the engine was dead.
I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right,
I'll never forget the sound that night.
The screaming tires, the busting glass,
The painful scream that I heard last.

[Chorus]

When I woke up, the rain was falling down,
There were people standing all around.
Something warm flowing through my eyes,
But somehow I found my baby that night.
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said;
"Hold me darling just a little while."
I held her close I kissed her - our last kiss,
I found the love that I knew I had missed.
Well now she's gone even though I hold her tight,
I lost my love, my life that night.

[Chorus]

Always,
