Always, Always and forever
Oh always, always and forever
Sitting here and thinking back
To a time when I was young
My memories are clear as day
I'm listening to the dishes clink
You announced as you would sing,
Songs of praise
And all the times we'd laugh at you
And all the times that you'd stay true to us
And I will say
Said I thank you, I'll always thank you
More than you will know
That I could ever show
And I love you, I'll always love you
There's nothing I won't do
To say these words to you
That you're beautiful forever
Oh always, always and forever

You were my mom, you were my dad
The only thing I ever had
Was you, it's true
Even when the times got hard
You were to let us know
That we get through
You showed me how to be a man
You taught me how to understand
The things, people do
You showed me how to love my God
You taught me that not everyone, knows it true
And I thank you, I'll always thank you
More than you will know
That I could ever show
And I love you, I'll always love you
There's nothing I won't do
To say these words to you
That you will live forever
Forever, and ever
Forever, and ever

Said I thank you, I'll always thank you
More than you will know
That I could ever show
And I love you, I'll always love you
There's nothing I won't do
To say these words to you
That I thank you, I'll always thank you
More than you will know
That I could ever show
And I love you, I'll always love you
There's nothing I won't do
To say these words to you
That you will live forever

    Awwwww. This song is sweet. I know Good Charlotte is punk a lot, but at least they can do a song like this every once in awhile and still be able to be popular. Cute song. Yeah... bye.

    this is a cool song... i really like them in general. i think its stupid that people say "oh they're not real punk, blah blah blah" and dont like them because of it. who cares if they're not like all the hardcore punk bands, they're still an awesome band, and they're songs dont all sound the same~

    This song is so amazing, for a punk band, or any band for that matter. It shows that sure, they can sing about relationships going down or their horrible high school days, but there's always something good: in this case, their mom. It's so sweet. My mom likes it too. Hehe.

    i love that benji and joel wrote this for their mom. she was a single parent, which only makes this more adorable. and i agree with gooberjoo. it doesn't matter how people classify them. they can be emo, punk, ska. whatever. they still rock my world.

    Some people that know me, may not think I'd like a song like this. Most people think I'm only into hardcore shit and they also think I'm a self centred bastard because i carry myself like that and I'm a labled "prep". But what most people don't know is that I'm a a very sensitive person, very heartfelt and a hopeless romantic. But this song is amazing. I played this for my mom and she started to cry because she knows that I feel the same way as the song says. Really a great song.

    the first time i heard this song i actually got a little teary-eyed... it's like all the things we should say to our moms (or whatever guardians) - that we never actually say. the orchestration was a nice touch too, sentimental but not sappy. i also heard benji and joel didn't put any cussing on their album because of their mom.

    This song makes me think "hm mabey someday I will get along with her" cuz right now, I am going through that phase where everything I do I do it to piss her off, maybe we will work though that

Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
