lyrics

today dad started talking
we were sitting at breakfast
and he said your name
today dad started talking

dad started talking
he asked me what i knew
i said you never told me anything
said that you never liked talking

saturday
it was a saturday
it was a saturday
and we talked

he said he never understood you
and why you were so angry
and why you liked to do
the things you did

and he hoped i didn't blame him
now that you were gone
and no one could explain
the thing you did

it was a saturday
it was a saturday
was a saturday
and we talked

and i sat and i was quiet
and my breakfast turned to mush
and i didn't know where to look
or what to do

and then it got too hard
and there was nothing else to say
so i said
yeah dad, i love you too.

was a saturday
was a saturday
was a saturday
and we talked

was a saturday
was a saturday
was a saturday
and we talked about you
