song of the day. #45 | song lyric sunday.

song of the day | what sandra thinks


Yesterday on the way home from buying glue so my daughter could make homemade slime, I heard a song that I haven’t heard in a while. I’ve always loved it… and I knew it would be my next song of the day. And then I saw the theme for this week’s ‘Song Lyric Sunday‘… traveling.

It actually works. Kind of.

This is a song about a failed relationship… and about running away… escaping… and starting over where no one knows you. It’s a thought that appeals to me… a lot. Only I wouldn’t go to Boston… that wouldn’t work for me (obviously… if you know that about me). I’d go somewhere else. Like Hawaii. Or Paris. But I’d also want to be about 25. That would be a good start-over age. But time travel is not a thing… so… that’s a problem.

Boston / Augustana

In the light of the sun, is there anyone?
Oh it has begun
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed
This world you must’ve crossed
You said

You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah

Essential yet appealed
Carry all your thoughts
Across an open field
When flowers gaze at you
They’re not the only ones
Who cry when they see you
She said

You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah

She said I think I’ll go to Boston
I think I’ll start a new life
I think I’ll start it over, where no one knows my name
I’ll get out of California, I’m tired of the weather
I think I’ll get a lover and fly him out to Spain
Oh yeah and I think I’ll go to Boston
I think that I’m just tired
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind
I think I need a sunrise, I’m tired of the sunset
I hear it’s nice in the summer, some snow would be nice
Oh yeah

You don’t know me, you don’t even care, oh yeah
She said
You don’t know me, and you don’t wear my chains… oh yeah

Boston
Where no one knows my name yeah
Where no one knows my name
Where no one knows my name
Boston
No one knows my name

  1. I heard this song many times on the radio, but I never paid all that much attention to it. I enjoyed listening to your song and it was exciting watching the tide come in.
