I found another letter,
This one was not much better
From a girl so long ago,
A girl I used to know in Reno
Yeah things they kinda happened
But I flunked her test or something
Punk rock cured my misery,
She said it ruined her and me

Back in the day,
We played in 1981
She went away
We had some fun way back in 1981
She went away,
I stayed in 1981
What’s done is done,
I thought, in 1981

I should explain the chorus,
There was no future for us
She made life feel ok,
We hung out every day
Then things got kinda creepy,
She started getting weepy
Our things grew really odd,
As soon as she found god

Back in the day,
We played in 1981
She went away
We had some fun way back in 1981
She went away,
I stayed in 1981
What’s done is done,
I thought, in 1981

She moved to Sacramento,
Gave back all my mementos
Stood there and watched her go
Stayed with my band in Skeeno
We tried to keep things friendly,
So hard when things have ended
Punk rock blamed for our decline,
She said it ruined her and mine

Back in the day,
We played in 1981
She went away
We had some fun way back in 1981
She went away,
I stayed in 1981
What’s done is done,
I thought, in 1981
