Here's Looking At You Kid
The Gaslight Anthem Lyrics


You can tell Gayle, if she calls,
That I'm famous now for all of these rock and roll songs.
And even if that's a lie, she should've given me a try.
When we were kids on the field of the first day of school.
I would've been her fool.
And I would've sang out your name in those old high school halls.
You tell that to Gayle, if she calls.

And you can tell Jane, if she writes,
That I'm drunk off all these stars and all these crazy Hollywood nights.
And that's a total deceit, but she should've married me.
And tell her I spent every night of my youth on the floor,
Bleeding out from all these wounds.
I would've gotten her a ride out of that town she despised.
You tell that to Janey, if she writes.

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
That will cut you to ribbons sometimes.
And all you can do is just wait by the moon
And bleed if it's what she says you oughta do.

You remind Anna, if she asks why,
That a thief stole my heart while she was making up her mind.
I heard she lives in Brooklyn with the cool,
Goes crazy over that New York scene on 7th Avenue.
But I used to wait at the diner, a million nights without her,
Praying she won't cancel again tonight.
And the waiter served my coffee with a consolation sigh.
You remind Anna, if she asks why.
Tell her it's all right.

You know it's hard to tell you this.
Oh it's hard to tell you this.
Here's looking at you, Kid.

This was played at a misunderstood friend of mines funeral who commit suicide this week. I'm still deciphering the meaning but it was perfect for the moment. This is one of my favorite songs now. R.I.P Andrew

This song makes me think of this time I wrote a love letter to a girl in 6th grade and put a pack of m&ms in there and stapled it all.around so I would be out of site when she opened it. But I chickened out. I remember opening the letter on the bus ride home and eating the candy. Was the saddest chocolate I've ever eaten.

I've forgotten most of the girls who shot me down, but I remember the ones I never had the guys to talk to. The real regrets are the risks we don't take.

Danny

That's a great story honestly

Allanan Sume

Same with my hs crush. She turned 18 so I bought 18 lollipops and put them in a bag with a note. I planned on leaving it at the changing room of the theater (I knew her from theater club and that day we had the opening night). Chickened out too and ended up sharing them with all the crew
