25 Songs, Day 16

A song that has made me cry.

Yesterday I played an Offspring song, and I will again today. I’m not even that big of a fan of theirs. Their Americana album was the last thing I really liked by them. After that it’s been all crap, to me anyway.

So with this particular song, I have to play this one, because it reminds me of my cousin who passed away from cancer at 20. And I believe, completely, that she should have been left here and I should have been taken. If I could trade, I would. I was already a fan of this song, but when she passed it took on a whole new meaning, and for the first couple of years after she passed, this song made me cry.

  1. I’ve never really lost anyone close to me though death. Not like this, anyhow. This is a fucking fantastic song and I have no doubt it will someday take on the same meaning to me as it does to you. Fuck death. And cancer.
