Dear Bobbie by Yellowcard

February 20, 2011

As I’m writing this post, Yellowcard is having a concert in Manila. I only got to really listen to their music recently and I can say I am really loving their sound and songs.
I’m posting a lyrics of Dear Bobbie here. It’s one of the songs from Yellowcard‘s Paper Walls album. I read somewhere that this was a love letter by vocalist Ryan Key’s grandfather to his wife and that the one talking on the background is actually the grand father. One of the songs from that album that struck me.

Dear Bobbie,
Do you remember when you were young and very pretty? I do, I remember pleated skirts, black and white saddle shoes. Do you remember dancing that night? I do, I still think of you when we dance, although we cant jitterbug as we did back then.

Do you remember when
How long has it been?
1945 you opened my blue eyes
To see a whole new life

Do you remember when
I told you this that night,
That if you’re by my side
When everyday begins
I’ll fall for you again
I made a promise when
I told you this that night

I’ll be fine
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
It’s alright, I’ll be fine
When I die, then I die loving you
Loving you, loving you

Do you remember the times we would give up on each other and get back together, then we were finally married in 1949. We drove the yellow convertible on our honeymoon. Do you remember? I do.

Life has led us here
Together all these years
This house that we have made
Holds twenty-thousand days

And memories we’ve saved
Since life has led us here

And I’ll be fine (I’ll be fine)
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
It’s alright (it’s alright), I’ll be fine (I’ll be fine)
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
Loving you, loving you

I’m coming home to you
Slipping off my shoes
Resting in my chair
See you standing there
The silver in your hair

I’m coming home to you
When I lay tonight, when I close my eyes
I know the sun will rise
Here the next life
As long as your still mine, then it’s alright

And I’ll be fine (I’ll be fine)
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
It’s alright (it’s alright), I’ll be fine (I’ll be fine)
Cause when I die, then I die loving you
Loving you, loving you

You have gray hair now but you’re a beautiful woman and the years have been good to both of us. We walk slow now, but we still have each other. The glue of love is still bonding us together. Love is what I remember. Do you remember?
