I don't know just how this happened,
I didn't think it ever could,
I'm the author of sappy love songs,
Trading in my bachelorhood.
Something snapped deep inside me,
Something that somebody said,
I felt the brush of angels wings then,
Your voice echoed in my head.

Chorus:
Ugly Day the sun is shining,
Every cloud's got a silver lining.
Ugly day the skies are blue,
Now every day is ugly without you.

You're the one pure thing,
That I've always prayed for.
Scales are falling from my eyes,
I must have been so blind before.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off of your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

Today was an ugly one,
Just like all the others.
All the flowers and the birds,
Making me feel smothered.
I would lie down on the street,
To keep the dust off your feet,
I would kneel each time I kissed you,
Anything Christie I miss you.

    General CommentOkay, so he gave an outline of the breakup on the new DVD. She was living somewhere else out of the country I believe and she had grown emotionally distant and one day she called and didn't want to continue the relationship. So yeah. It's sad.

    General CommentI believe Christie was Reese's fiance at the time... yet they are no longer engaged, it was broken off. At least, this is what I think. I'm far from knowledgable of FIF bio stuff. I'm somewhat new to their music.

    General CommentBlast! I had a whole reply written up and such, and apparantly it only put up the first part... lemme try to recreate it... "uh... yeah, torska, that's it. /sarcasm Anyway, from what I've heard, Reese was engaged (I guess her name was Christie, judging by the lyrics) and like the day before (that could have been an exaggeration by my friend) she called him up and said she never wanted to see him again. Ouch. Also, he also wrote another song about it called Independence Day for the Brave Saint Saturn side project. There might be another song or two about it, too tired to think right now, so, uh... yeah."

    General CommentChristie is a girl Reese proposed to, She agreed. They were engaged, then she started having second thoughts, so she broke it off. Reese went into this depression and wrote and wrote and wrote. this song, along with Hurricanes is a song he wrote after the loss of his would-be wife, Christie.

    General Commentthis song, along with almost every brave saint saturn song, and with quite a few FIF songs, helps me realize and admire reese and how mature he is in his walk. he always seems to turn the bad situations around into either a comedy (blue comb '78) or a happy song like this one and independence day (BSS), or even mature songs by brave saint saturn like two twenty nine, gloria, and under bridges.
