Let the Memories Haunt Them ^^

(In which this is dedicated to all those who are guilty.)

***

I was watching the replay of American Idol Season 8 on GMA 7 last Maundy Thursday (April 9). It was the episode when Scott Macintyre was eliminated since the judges decided not to use their “one save per season”.


Kellie Pickler, a former “Idol” contestant was a guest performer at the show. Okay. I wasn’t a fan of the show. Besides, I was never able to catch it on TV even before its previous seasons because it was aired when I was having classes at school. And I always forget to watch the replays on weekends so I don’t know who’s who. But what I am trying to say, and the topic of this post is actually the song Kellie Pickler sang. It was her new single “Best Days of Your Life”. And I just love how she walked on stage with her high heels and how she performed. The song was so good that I’ve been singing it over and over since I heard it like it was the only song I know. Now I tried to download the video of Kellie singing at the “Idol” stage but I couldn’t find it on Youtube and when I tried to search for it on other websites, I couldn’t open it. I received the message saying that the video has been removed for some reasons. So I downloaded this one. It’s her performance at CMA Awards 2008. But I’m not saying that this performance was less than the one on American Idol. I just hope I was able to get the video I was really looking for.


Anyway, here it is.

You might want to sing along so here are the lyrics. ^^

Best Days Of Your Life

'Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met 'till you were making me cry
And it's just too bad, you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

Ain't it a shame?
A shame that every time you hear my name
Brought up in a casual conversation
You can't think straight

And ain't it sad?
You can forget about what we had
Take a look at her and do you like what you see?
Or do you wish it was me

'Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad, you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

And does she know?
Know about the times you used to hold me
Wrapped me in your arms and how you told me
I'm the only one

I heard about
Yeah, someone told me once, when you were out
She went a little crazy ran her mouth about me
Ain't jealousy funny?

'Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met to the very last night
And it's just too bad, you've already had the best days
The best days of your life

...with me was a fairytale love
I was head-over-heals 'till you threw away us
And it's just too bad you've, already had the best days
The best days of your life

I heard you're gonna get married
Have a nice little family
Live out my dreams with someone new
But, I've been told that a cheater
Is always a cheater
I've got my pride, and she's got you...

'Cause I'll be there, in the back of your mind
From the day we met 'till you were making me cry
And it's just too bad, you've already had the best days
The best days of your life...

Of your life
Oh, oh, yeah
You're gonna think of me
You're gonna think of me in your life
Oh, oh, yeah
It's a shame, it's a shame...



Hmmm… So true. ^^
