Oh Yeah by the Way

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.
