"Back To Prom" as written by Michael Poulsen and Thomas Bredahl....
Forever and ever, even today and after
I kept our picture forever
Back in the late fifties we went to the prom and kissing
But you went home with Tom Ripley

Throw the guy a meat bone, put him on a train
That's the way it should end
Living the outskirts, to forty miles away
Where the lonely road ends

Forever and ever, even today and after
I still believe you can hear me
Believer, deceiver, the question lies beneath the
letter I wrote you in late May

Throw the guy a meat bone, put him on a train
That's the way it should end
Living the outskirts, to forty miles away
Where the lonely road ends
Where the lonely road ends
Where the guitar gangsters sings

    General CommentAlright let me know if I'm crazy.

    He went to prom with this girl, who went home with Tom Ripley, that's pretty obvious. Tom Ripley killed her. I figure he killed her cause
    a) Tom Ripley killed people
    b) "forever and ever, even today and after; I still believe you can hear me" - seems like she's dead just from that sentence
    c) "Believer, deceiver, the question lies beneath the letter I wrote you in late May" - I'm guessing he wrote her a letter, and put it on top of her casket at the funeral.

    How was my aim, you think?
