TRANSPLANTS lyrics - Sad But True

TRANSPLANTS
"Sad But True"

When the fog comes through the golden gate
And the moon shines on the bay
And everything has changed
Now that you have gone away
Things are getting darker
And it's harder for me to see
And now you're an angel
Lookin' over me

Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road
Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road

Sad but true, but the list is too long
If I had to name you all it wouldn't fit in this song
This magnum's got me thinkin and it's making me pissed
Your lives were took too early, you will always be missed
All the mothers who cry and the fathers who mourn
For every life that's taken there's another child born
That doesn't make it better and it doesn't make it right
I'm just thankful everyday that you came in my life

Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road
Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road

In a dream you take a trip
Down Shattuck to Durant
Up the hill, to the steps, Sproul Plaza and Telegraph
You pass Channing, you pass Derby
You go to Ashby, down to Adeleine
Take MLK to fifty-fourth and go down
To Genoa, yeah, and follow the bart tracks
To Harmon street, ahhh Harmon street
Harmon street, Harmon street, yeah,
It's reoccurring, it's like a dream
I live a thousand times, yeah
And it's always like the very first time

As time goes on, I can never forget
All the times we had, memories I protect
Seems like yesterday when I last saw your face
You're no longer here and no one can replace
All the times we had, wish they could happen again
I'll hold you in my heart, in my heart till the end
If I could make a change, it'd be me not you
So hard to sit and cope, so sad but true

Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road
Back up back up - it's what you get
Beat up keyed up - this rocky road
