Jim Milks (2/7/1966 / Boston)
…Goodnight Boston, I love you..
Can’t you see all that I have done for you?
The countless tears I have cried.
I have given all I have
There is nothing left inside
I stood for hours in the cold rain
Just to see you, didn’t you hear me call your name?
You looked straight at me
But I knew you could not see me
I heard you on the radio
Talking about your life
You home your family
And even about your wife
With a flash of light, and a brief searing pain
My life is short, my desire is strong
I know you loved me once,
What did I do that was so wrong?
As my life spills out on the floor
I hear your voice on the radio once more
…goodnight Boston I love each and everyone of you
I fade away for evermore
