This work has reached the exceptional level
Considering remastering this song recorded a decade ago
"By The Way (Remaster?)" by prodigal
I could tell right away by the way she held her eyes
She felt the same way that I did it was love at first sight
In a room full of people I could always feel her there
She was an angel sent from heaven, the answer to my prayers
She'd pick up the phone and call me without much to say
Only that she was missing me and "I love you, by the way"

Love was a given
Not something we had to say
Just a simple understanding
an "Oh, and by the way"
You know that I love you
Darling what else is there to say
I can't wait to see you
My love grows more for you each day
We had an understanding greater than words
It was an "Oh, and by the way"

A simple understanding carried us almost ten years
What I thought was understanding was hidden hopes and fears
Now a few unspoken words turned love into regret
I'll always be haunted by the words I left unsaid

I could tell right away by the way she held her eyes
There was something different and much to my surprise
She said "I'm sorry but I don't love you anymore"
I felt my heart breaking as she walked out the door
We had so much left to do, there was so much left to say
I felt our love dying, and so much now had gone by the way

Love was a given
Not something we had to say
Just a simple understanding
An "Oh, and by the way"
I wonder what would have happened
If I had said it anyway
She might still be here and our love would not be
Gone by the way

Author Notes

This was one of the first songs I recorded. I'm considering a re-write and modernization of it. Re-writes get expensive so I'm not sure if I should go for it or just let this one go.
