When We Meet Again

Almost everyone has a song that takes them back to a particular period of time or a special place and makes them ache inside for that time or a good way. In the spirit of my last post regarding my memories, this is my "that song". It is called "When We Meet Again" by an artist called G. Love. Here is a version of the song that he posted on YouTube. I don't know why he's not wearing a shirt, but I assume it must have something to do with the fact that he is too cool for clothes. I only hope you enjoy the song close to as much as I do. I have also included the lyrics immediately below the video.

When We Meet Again - G. Love

Springtime is sprung, and the wind from the south
Blows strong and warm to clean out your house
The sun has arisen and the lies that are told are
Driven outside with that freezing cold
I can remember a spring just like this
I was 19 yrs. old
Now the time is sorely missed
The first year that I left my mother's house
Out to make my way in this world somehow

I can't believe how the times they have changed
All the dreams that came true still seem so far away
I remember the days sittin' on the front porch
With the sun beatin' down in my neighborhood

I'd sit out all night singin' songs to the moon
Or try and get some sweet honey back to my bedroom

My friends they were few but to me they was true
All we was trying to do was to just make it through
Always thought for the future, but we shouldn't have cared
All the best things in life we shared them right there

So to all those old friends God be with them
I wish, I wish I could see you again
In the same corner bar where it all started from
Dig your plow so deep now the stars have all gone
So wherever they shine may it be warm and bright
Out to ease my mind on this worried night
It all seems so simple and good tidings I send
I'll never forget that one year that we spent...

Sorry but I'm going to have to disagree wtih you and say G-Love blows almost as bad as Hanson. This song is ok though if that's any consolation to your now awestruck soul. So, now that I believe I have commented over 15 times tonight alone; you're going to write a blog about me right?! I mean you wrote one about some guy that wrote a couple lame and short and unsubstantiated comments. Keep it real fake Ken. Don't ever forget where you came from. Adio.
