When every single things Ive grown to love
Is tied up in this moment
Like a dream from which I pray I'll never wake
Who can wash away these tears
When all I've ever wanted
Is still written on her face

But the wind keeps whipping
And the time keeps ticking away
And it feels like Im not closer
With these miles caught in the way
Can anything be salvaged from this wreck?
With forever lying in peices
And her name tacked on my neck

Still caught up in what I wouldnt give
So stubborn and withdrawn
Exposed as though I'd never had a choice
Will things ever be the way they were
Blue skies and Open hearts
Talking up till dawn and reading Joyce

But now its clear
That theres nothing left to retrieve
And precious little that I can believe in
And I was just too blind to see it
So whats it all for?
When the lies mean so much more
Much more than reality
And whats the use of keeping score
When I've lost?

    General CommentDoes anyone know who is Bobby Baun? The begining of this song is from Breakfast Club, but I don't know if it has anything to do with the song at all.

    My OpinionBobby Baun was a professional Hockey player for 17 seasons between 1956 and 1973. I've looked him up, and I can't find anything that relates Bobby Baun as a person to the song or the lyrics or anything. So I'm guessing that it was one of those where they wanted to name a song after him for no real reason; maybe they're big fans or something.

    Anyways, this is my favorite Good Riddance song, and Good Riddance is one of my favorite bands... therefore, I guess you can say that this is one of my all-time favorite songs. Everything about it, to me, is flawless. They inject SO MUCH EMOTION into this particular song, so much feeling, and the lyrics are so deep and emotional, too. Usually, Good Riddance uses rage, but this is where they use longing and sadness. It's fantastic. They should've done more songs like this, and songs like this make me miss them so much...
