Watsky - Dedicated To Christina Li Lyrics

  • [Verse 1]
  • The first time I went back to homeroom from the hospital
  • I thought that being more embarrassed was impossible
  • But God, the second time it really turned my stomach
  • Now I’m the kid who collapses and then spazzes out in public
  • This time was a bowling alley, the first was in the yard
  • And kids in middle school just watched me trip and kicked me hard
  • Except this girl named Crissie Li, who flips around at her desk
  • And gives me the world’s biggest Disney card
  • Wrote “best wishes,” and “kisses” where she signed it
  • 3 feet by 2 feet, I coulda hid behind it
  • I didn’t like the pity from Christina Li though
  • I’m thinking “Crissie, can’t you see I’m busy being emo?”
  • ‘Cause I think I mighta heard she maybe sorta liked me
  • And since she wasn’t cool enough I guess I took it lightly
  • Had braces and glasses and wasn’t Ms. Popular
  • And so I didn’t really give a thought to her
  • [Hook]
  • A heart breaking sounds like guitar strings snapping
  • It’s the notes of the song that’ll never happen
  • And the wind in the leaves is the sound of ghosts clapping
  • But a heart breaking sounds like guitar strings snapping
  • [Verse 2]
  • There’s holes in my memory- it isn’t photographic
  • There’s holes in my yearbook but the cut-out folks were plastic
  • Ten years pass, I don’t cross paths
  • With half the people from my class again 'til we meet at Crissie’s open casket
  • Those who chose to ask it probably knew
  • I could have dug in deeper if I’d wanted to
  • But you couldn’t tell a thing was off on the surface
  • And I didn’t know she was sick until I heard about her service
  • She was born with a heart defect, used to the cold knife
  • She’d been in and out of hospitals her whole life
  • She knew the whole time, and never said why
  • She felt my pain herself and helped me hold my head high
  • The nicest folks are those who know the throes of crisis
  • Though I know it’s crime to twist her life to fit my own devices
  • Why’s it so hard to mourn, and then try to learn by this
  • But lights that burn shortest
  • Are the lights that burn brightest
  • [Hook]
  • [Verse 3]
  • Our 8th grade yearbook page for dedicating songs wasn’t long
  • Even in a school eleven hundred strong
  • The yearbook advertised for months, but when it’s said and done
  • Crissie bought six, the third most of anyone
  • Alvin got “Your Faith in Me” by Jessica Simpson
  • Pebbles got Richard Marx’s ballad “At the Beginning”
  • It feels like sloppy poetry the way her life would end
  • After sending Mariah Carrey’s “Any Time You Need a Friend"
  • But corniness is honesty that’s wrapped in cliché
  • And most slow jam lyrics aren’t shit I’m brave enough to say without a smirk
  • But before she went to dirt she left us finally
  • "I Will Remember You” to Geoff, Mike, Bry and me
  • You can plot if you must
  • Say it’s obviously fate, or explain that God is just
  • But all I know is that until my body’s dust
  • I will try to think of her as much as Crissie thought of us
  • [Outro]
  • This one goes out to Christina
