That Song - Poem by Nicky McNeil

I hear that song
all the time it plays
on all the stations
damn, its years old

Its pretty corney, whiney
and a pop ditty at that
no one but lovers, dazed
would ever like mush like this

Hell I am Zepplin, Stones
Neil Young and Velvet Underground
If my old pals knew I liked this
they would take me to bubblegum rehab

Nevertheless, we thought it ours
and all night long, listened
hell it gave us goosebumps
cause it released, when we first did

But the song lied to me
Just like you did
Gave me dreams of love
and that phoney bullsh..

But you had the grace to go
except of course from my mind
this damn song won't leave
I hear it all the blasted time

I can turn off the stereo
and roll down the windows
and I still hear it, softly
helping me lose my mind.
