Give my car to my girlfriend
Make sure that she don't cry
And give my best friend the crowning prize
Tell him that his Queen should be his bride

Do you remember the time I whispered in your ear
I wish this feeling would four years
Remember the time after the football game
Car breakin' down walkin' home in the rain
You threw off your shirt and said "to hell with that"
I remember that you're crazy like that

Remember me on graduation day
Make sure they call my name
Remember me on graduation
And tell them all I really wanted to be there

Give my best to those who knew me
Can my voice still be heard?
Give yourself a new beginning
And don't forget who we were

Cause the campfire burns like I burn for you
And Johnny's in the fire lighting up his shoe
I slip my cold hands between your legs
As you tell me all the things you waited to say
And I'll drop you a sign every now and then that says
"Someday baby you'll love again"

Remember me on graduation day
Make sure they call my name
Remember me on graduation
And tell them all I really wanted to be there

Do you remember the time I whispered in your ear
I wish this feeling would last four years
Remember the time after the football game
Car breakin' down walkin' home in the rain
And the campfire burns like I burn for you
Johnny's in the fire lighting up his shoe
And I'll drop you a sign every now and then that says
"Someday baby you'll love again"

Remember me on graduation day
Make sure they call my name
Remember me on graduation
And tell them all I really wanted to be there
Tell them all I really wanted to be there
Tell them all I really wanted to be there

    General CommentI stumbled upon this song while looking up music on LimeWire more then a year ago, and when i organized my songs by amount of plays the other day i realized that this was the most played song. I think its about a kids whos got some type of terminal illness or something... he knows he's gunna die before his graduation. And he just doesn't want to be forgoton even though he can't be there. He doesn't want to be wiped off the face of the earth because he's gone- he wants everyone to know his accomplishements even if he isn't around to celebrate with them.

    General CommentI agree :) Great song, and a fitting epitaph for the kid it's written about. I saw these guys live, the lead singer Steve gives a bit of backstory about it before they play it. There was a kid in his High School who died of an illness, and the whole school turned out for his funeral, he wrote this as what the kid would have said if he got the chance. I get chills everytime I hear to it :)
