Sunrays and Saturdays

I was asked once why I chose this title for my blog. It's the title of a song by Vertical Horizon and the name resonated with me at the time of my Dad's death. Sunny Saturday afternoons, the smell of cut grass, boiling hot concrete paths covered in ants, panting dogs, fresh apples, memories of my childhood. I searched for a copy of a video by Vertical Horizon and found this one -

For the record the lyrics are here -

Open the window
Let the sunset in
If only for the last time
Let me see you smile again

I'll take my records
You can have your books
I'm sorry I never read them
But it says so much about us

Always trying
To make love out of care
The perfect recipe
But something wasn't there

Sunrays and Saturdays
Perfect starry nights
Sweet dreams and moonbeams
And a love that's warm and bright
Sunrays and Saturdays
Friendship strong and true
Oceans of blue and a room with a view
To live the life you choose

You'll write me letters
I'll call you on the phone
A wire away from touching
And never quite alone

We'll get to know ourselves again
And we'll heal our hearts
It's not that we're bad together
We're just better off apart

Always trying
To have one and one make two
And even though it never worked
I still feel love for you
