      Marie Angeline - Amo/Fathers

Rick wrote the music for this first.  I thought it kicked ass and wrote some lyrics accordingly.

Oh yeah, I remember my first great love. Who can ever forget a thing like that? High school. Industrial disinfectant. Luv’s Baby Soft Shampoo. We’d hold hands until you could float a boat through them. We were going to rent a white limo with all our friends and go to the prom. We were going take a year off after we graduated and go to Europe. We were so into each other we just knew we were going to get married.

Marie-Angeline, you bring out the worst in me.

I just can’t believe how bad this boy can be.

Marie-Angeline.

Number two Serious Girlfriend. Maybe it was love at first sight. Or maybe we were General Patton and Field Marshal Rommel in a former life. I remember us fighting over God knows whatever stupid thing it happened to be on that particular night and me running out and jumping onto a bus and crying like I was some kind of wounded war hero because it was so sad and my wounds were so deep. Because we were going to get married.

Hit the dirt!

Marie-Angeline, you bring out the worst in me.

I just can’t believe how bad this boy can be.

Marie-Angeline.

A couple of years and a few more flaming wrecks later and I decide, “Okay, I’ve had enough of the randomness and stupidity of it all, I’m going to finally grow up and find a woman I can spend the rest of my life with”. And I do! And she’s great! And we’re great! And then one day we just run out of things to say to each other. So we decide we’re going to go into couple’s therapy and work through this. Because we’re committed to each other. Right? Because deep down we really do love each other. Right? Because, who knows, one day we might even get married.

Marie-Angeline, you bring out the worst in me.

I just can’t believe how bad this boy can be.

Marie-Angeline….
