hello

lyrics and music by Nathan Davis

Hello, how've you been?
Been a long time since I've seen your eyes,
Sure is good to be with you again.
Hello, please don't look at me that way.
You just make me want to hold you like
I did so many yesterdays.

Apologies aren't easy for me,
So I'll say the old cliché:
Hello, how have you been?
Been a long time since I've seen your smile,
Sure is good to be with you again.

Hello, how have you been?
Been a long time since I've watched your eyes,
Sure is good to be with you again.
Hello, please forgive me, I have sinned;
Will you bless my soul tonight while my heart is on the mend?

Apologies aren't easy for me,
Apologies aren't easy for me,
Apologies aren't easy for me, so I'll say what I must say:
Hello, how have you been?
Been a long time since I've seen you smile;
Sure is good to be with you...

My favorite memory of Nathan will always be him tucked on my couch, fresh out of rehab and hiding from the world, reading me a Nate the Great book and making promises. He was a bastard and he broke his promises again and again, but there was something about how unapologetic he was in every single part of his life that always made it forgiveable.

I loved him most when he was the Nathan you get when you're alone with him, when it was just the two of us and our guitars making plans to blow this whole world apart with our music. Goddamn that boy could work a crowd though, and it was a pleasure to watch him.
