"Nineteen Seventy Nine" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
You were mine, nineteen seventy nine, just skin and bones
Your favorite dress, motorcycle boots, raised on Rock & Roll
Now don't, don't give up on me, not quite yet
Leaving me, with only letters that, I said I never kept

Nights, nights so long, they can kill a man
Years, years so fast, it's all the same
Now why, don't you leave, another day

Tell me why, just why, you have to go
'Cause I'm, I'm no good, out here on my own

    General CommentI feel this song is pretty straight forward. The singer is talking about a girl thats on the verge of leaving. And every fiber of his being is crying for her to stay.
