Let me start this from the day we met.
You looked so beautiful, I never will forget.
Then you opened up your eyes, looked at me and kinda smiled.
I was scared, but still happy at the same time.
I never wanted us to be a superficial family.
But in the end it was the only thing we could be.

Angie, I'm sorry I wasn't right for you
Just what did you expect for me to do?
You know that I would have done anything for you.

I sometimes think about how things could be
If you would've took a chance and moved out here with me.
We'd cruise along the 101 in the California sun
Sing Descendents songs and have ourselves lots of fun.
Stay out drinking really late stumble home from lower State.
Treat every day like it would be our first date.

Angie, I'm sorry that you weren't right for me.
I guess that it just wasn't meant to be.
I quit pretending you were in love with me.

    General CommentThe song can't be about his daughter? How could not be in love with their own child? And who would take them drinking and getting sloshed when they're a newborn?

    General CommentThis is such a great song. I think I remember reading that it's about the lead singer's daughter, and the date 1/15 is her birthday (as well as mine, although I wasn't born in '96!). The "Angie" in the song is his ex-girlfriend and her mom. It was written after the band signed and came to California and is about the hard times they had missing the things they left behind.

    General CommentI heard that this song is about Kris moving away to California to start the band and he had to leave his first wife behind.

    General CommentI heard this song about two years ago. Man Overboard by Blink 182 had just come out and I was looking for it on Napster. I downloaded one and it turned out ot be this song. It wasn't until this morning I figured out it was the ataris. This is cool because years ago I was searching for who this was.
