#SongLyricSunday ♫ “By The Way” – Theory of a Deadman

SongLyricSunday

After being gone for so many weeks from the realm of social media, it feels good to be getting back (slowly, but surely) in the saddle. What better way to “Whattup, bitches!” than with a music challenge? Btw, that sentence is only cool-point effective if you channel Charlie from Supernatural, otherwise it might just be offensive.

This week’s SongLyricSunday theme is: Goodbyes and Farewells.

If you want to join in the fun or check out all the other participants, then head on over to Helen’s blog, This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time!

My choice for this week is a few years old now, but still packs a powerful punch and I love how the video leaves everything open to interpretation. Enjoy!

A note by the door
Simply explains
It’s all that remains
It’s no wonder why
I have not slept in days
The dust on the floor
Piled up from the years
All those scars and souvenirs
Now that you’re gone
It’s easy to see
But so hard to believe

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you’re gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

It’s not like before
You’ve left nothing here
It’s all disappeared
It hurts me to see
That we’ve been a lie
Would it have hurt you to try?

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you’re gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

It’s sad to say that
This pain is killing me inside
But it’s time to say
That this pain is keeping me alive
Twisting and turning
It rips through my heart
It’s been tearing me apart

By the way
You left without saying
Goodbye to me
Now that you’re gone away
All I can think about is
You and me
You and me

All I think about now
Is you and me
You and me
All I think about now
Is you and me
You and me

By the way
By the way
By the way

  1. Great song, AC!

    “It’s sad to say that
    This pain is killing me inside
    But it’s time to say
    That this pain is keeping me alive”

    LOVE THAT!

    I like the video. She felt she had to leave…and she did. Good seeing her besties waiting for her. Sorry, dude. Move it along. 😄

    It’s not a ‘happy’ song, but loving that hard, driving beat! I’m such a rock chick! LMAO! 😄😄

    A few years old? I’ve yet to post anything from THIS century and half the songs are from before I was old enough to vote! Welcome to my world! 😂😂😂

    1. LOL This is true – not sure why I mentioned how old (or young) the song is when I have some that are much, much older in my library too! 😀

      Glad you liked it, and there is nothing wrong with being a rock chick! LOL 😀

      1. Yep! Saw Nickelback in concert a handful of years ago with Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days – Chad (lead singer) likes to ramble on and on before singing, don’t recommend it. LOL – but my favorite song by Nickelback is not a well known one called “Follow You Home” and yes, it’s quite Stalker-ish, but it’s hilarious and the growl in his voice in that song…eargasmic. 😉 😛

      2. I don’t need Chad to TALK…just sing! 😄😄😄

        Missed out on one of their concerts because of…wait for it…a FIBRO flare-up! 😏 Now I don’t feel so bad! LOL!

        Don’t know that song. Calling Drew – he has all their stuff! 😎

      3. Ugh, sucks about the flare-up, but no, you didn’t miss much. I guess he’s notorious for talking too much at concerts. Let Drew know it’s on their “All the Right Reasons” album. 🙂
