"A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk'?, and I say 'No that's trendy'!"- Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day


All I know of you is but a distant memory
And I hope you have the same
Your presence in the room like a star in the sky
Light in the darkness of my mind
Your absence like a ghost that haunts
Haunts my hopes and dreams
And still I'm forgetting you
Maybe because you've forgotten me
Left me behind in the rain
Like a footnote on the page
In the prologue
Of your life
And you might as well be dead
to me
Said you might as well be dead
to me
Because without you around
Things don't look the same
I'm writing you a letter
Filled with all I've ever wanted
And words I can't remember fill the page
Tomorrow starts a better time
And I can't wait to get there
She'll be there with me
To be everything I ever wished you were
And I'm still here without you, for good
