In Memoriam: John Hughes

When I heard that the director John Hughes had died today, I felt like a part of my youth died with him. I grew up watching his movies and could completely identify with all of his characters and their teenage angst. How many of us dreamed of finding our own Jake Ryan after seeing Sixteen Candles? I don't know if any director will ever be able to fill his shoes but I do know that I will be watching his movies this weekend as a tribute. Rest in peace John.

If you were here
I could deceive you
and if you were here
you would believe
but would you suspect
my emotion wandering yeah
do not want a part of this anymore.

The rain water drips
through a crack in the ceiling
and I'll have to spend
my time on repair
but just like the rain
I'll be always falling, yeah
only to ride and fall again.

If you were here
I could deceive you
and if you were here
you would believe
but would you suspect
my emotion wandering, yeah
do not want to be a part of this anymore...
