Stacy's Garden

From Gerald Baker

~VANDO~ by Gerald Baker


Poor my heart out I can't speak right now
And with no doubt frozen feet some how
A trickling tear down my face's cheek
Sudden fear preventing my lips to speak

How could I know
The end for you was soon
I wish that I knew
So I could say that I love you

Hardened hearts, a lump growing in my throat
A simple "I'm sorry" to sow another oat
But content to speak held my thoughts deep within
Faithfull evening that sent my life in a spin

Trying to confide with one another
Tears fall to the floor
Tissue after tissue
Never delt with so much before

Jokes we shared, the smiles you shared
Let me know then that you've always cared
A picture in your locker baring my face
Only to become a picture in an empty space

How could I know
The end for you was soon
I wish that I knew
So I could say I love you

Emptiness inside, left with complete despair
As if a peice of me is gone, no way to repair
Seeing it all end, closiour on ones grand ball
Celebration of your life, the dance goes on for all

How could I know
The end for you was soon
I wish that I knew
So I could say I love you

"HEAR YOU ME" by Jimmy Eat World

There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go
I never said thank you for that
Thought I might get one more chance

What would you think of me now
So lucky, so strong, so proud
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have a chance

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friend
On the sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

So what would you think of me now
So lucky, so strong, so proud
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have a chance

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friend
On the sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friend
On the sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

And if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God wouldn't let it live

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friend
On the sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friend
On the sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in



...May angels lead you in Stace...


 I wrote the lyrics to VANDO just this past summer. I was thinking a lot
about Stace then and just everything started pooring out. The week of
Stacy's accident, she had gotten mad at me about something. I don't remember
quite what it was, but to this day it tears at me. Knowing that she left
this world upset with me. I wasn't friends with her long, I think 7th grade
was when we started to become good friends. But the time we spent together
was always full of jokes and laughter. I just hope that she's forgiven me by
now. I love you Stacy.



The Jimmy Eat World song, HEAR YOU ME, is on a CD called BLEED AMERICAN
if anyone would like to pick it up. It's sold at any Target, Best Buy, or
Hot Topic. Also if you would like to hear our song, VANDO. Our band is
called TWICE FOR THE SAME and we will probably be playing shows around the
Watertown area soon. For updates you can check our site or email me at
