Buffalo Tom Can Cheer Me Up (Day 22)

Day 22 – A song that you listen to when you’re sad

Anything from Buffalo Tom. They always seem to be able to cheer me up.

Here’s a great clip featuring scenes from the excellent TV show “My So-Called Life.”

It’s a sad song and even more powerful with the images and memories I have from when the band appeared on the show.

“Late at Night” by Buffalo Tom

“I close my door at night
but they get in all right
and she turns on the light

I held her hands so tight
’cause words don’t come out right
and she sees thinks at night

Me, i’m closer to the door
I don’t get scared no more
but I don’t know the score

if i could hold them in my hand
i’d make them understand
i’m not a haunted mind
i’m not a thoughtless kind

If I could put them in a jar
I know they wouldn’t scar
I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would

I close my door at night
but she gets in all right
so I turn on the light

I held her hand too tight
too hard to make it right
so I could sleep at night

If I could hold them in my hand
I’d make them understand
I’m not a haunted mind
I’m not a thoughtless kind

If I could put them in a jar
I know they wouldn’t scar
I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would

I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would
I’d do it if I could
I hope you know I would”
