You like to eat your grits with butter salt and sugar You drink your coffee instant and black I always loved the fact but thought that it was so peculiar How you carried everything you owned in the back seat of your 1983 canary yellow Z You had a unique collection of fast food bags and all the post-it notes with quotes stuck to your dashboard reminding you life's not so bad
(chorus) Sad sadder day Since I heard you went away Sad sadder day When I can't see your face
What about the day you took me to skatetown USA It was raining and there wasn't anywhere we could play We skated backwards while we held onto each other's hands Made up choreography to KC and the sunshine band You got tired you said you couldn't sleep last night You stayed up praying for everybody you know's souls and you got misty eyed when you said you weren't afraid to die but you were scared of being alone
Sad sadder day....
Faster my heart started beating I've got the funniest most awful feeling You were trying trying to tell me something I didn't want to know
