My husband introduced me to the group Over the Rhine last year and I fell in love. Most of all, I love their lyrics. The other night as we sat on the porch watching the sunset, it’s what we do, we were listing to their latest release, The Long Surrender. The song Oh Yeah by the Way came on. Half way through I looked at Jeff and said, “Isn’t this a great song for parents of teen and adult children?” We began the song over and laughed as we listened to the words…Oh yeah by the way Oh yeah by the way The thought of you it shook my head Just today Oh yeah by the way Oh yeah by the way What a waste that I still love you After the mess you’ve made What a waste that I’m not jaded Once in awhile I even smile What a waste you’re just a stranger To me now Oh yeah by the way Oh yeah by the way There are still so many things I wonder if should say, like What a waste that I still love you But I can’t erase one scar All your self-inflicted wounds Have made you what you are So goodbye yesterday Goodbye yesterday I probably should have guessed that it could End this way What if I’m as good as you at Walkin’ away Oh yeah by the way I still love you.
