about

This is probably the happiest little song about a girl who kills herself because her high school boyfriend died in a motor vehicle accident. ^_^

lyrics

She wakes up to find that her boyfriend's motorcycle hit a car and now he's in Critical down at Ocean View. So she steals her Daddy's car and drives on down the shore. He's waiting for her. He's waiting for her, but he can't wait no more.

The sun goes down on Jenni but now it's too late to go home. The sun goes down on Jenni. There's an ocean breeze that now chills her to the bone.

She waits by the phone just hoping that he'll call and tell her, "It's all a joke!" cuz, you see, he's still alive.

Her Daddy knocks and says, "Time to move on, Princess." But he doesn't know that she can't let go. She'll never miss him less.

The sun goes down on Jenni and in her nightmare dreams she cries. And in the morning light she knows she can't survive.

They were talking about marriage, after high school but before college. How can she go on without him here?

The sun goes down on Jenni and in her final hour she waits. And her Daddy's Walther brings her hand to fate.

The sun goes down on Jenni. Now she's where the spirits roam. The sun comes up on Jenni. She'll watch the funeral from her new home.

Now she's home.
