"sad song" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
Play me a sad song
'Cause that's what I want to hear
I want you to make me cry
I want to remember the places that we left
Lost to the mists of time

I know that you'll go soon
You'll find out so take me with you always
I know that you'll go soon
You'll find out so take me with you always

On buses that move through the night
We sleep on and on
We got off at Memphis
Black-top heat will make us thirsty
We'll never get sick anymore
I know that you'll go soon
You'll find out so take me with you always
I know that you'll go soon
You'll find out so take me with you always
Play me a sad song
'Cause that's what I want to hear
I want you to make me cry
I want to remember the places that we left
Lost to the mists of time

    General CommentReally do admire this song for its great simple lyrics simple and effective lovely sound and everything it achives and sets out to do, for me a song about a close freind or lover that is soon to depart or has departed and a song to remind you of good times to make you sad both in a happy way or remind teh other person to feel sad just like you.

    my interprtation anyways, great little undiscovered band. viva Au Revoir Simone :]

    General Commenthey zediax. when i hear "Memphis, blacktop heat," i think of humid summer days and the glare you can see on city streets or behind the exhaust pipes of big trucks. you're always thirsty on hot days like that.

    General CommentI still don't know why they say "you'll find out". I think it's non-sense. Can anyone explain it to me? Anyway, I simply love this song!!!
