Wreckage in Roswell

 

One day I learned that you could search for images on Google. So of course, I decided to type in some old girlfriend's names and see if I could find them. Well, I found one. The big one. The first one . The three year ollege sweetheart. That was surprising enough as it was. When I read up on what she's been up to - it was not at all what I could have possibly expected. I couldn't believe my eyes.

At least I know didn't forget me.

Wreckage in Roswell
   

I was seventeen when I met this girl at the movie theaters where we both worked.
Something about her was out of this world. We were best friends while she dated this jerk.
Well, he was cool, but I wanted her for me.
We'd always laugh and take our breaks together. She knew my prom date, thought I could do better.
I loved going to work because she was there. Walking next to her, I was walking on air

I went off to Boston. She went to New York. But a day didn't pass where we didn't talk.
We said we'd ge together on our first break. I knew this was a chance I had to take.

When we finally kissed, my knees turned to Jello. My heart skipped. My body bellowed.
She pulled back, smiled, and said, "Hello." to "the love of my life." That's what she called me.

I hope she's doing well. We spent three years in heaven, then the end didn't go so well.
I had my dreams I wouldn't sell. Gonna be on the big screen; I got stories to tell.

I wasn't even 21 when it came undone. I met the perfect girl while I was still too young
to know the choices you make could be big mistakes. Now all that's left of her is this empty ache.

For the past ten years I've been in California making music and movies trying to stay above water.
I've had some broken hearts from time to time. I wonder what happened to that first love of mine.

So I Googled my computer and typed in her name. Then her picture appeared. She looked exactly the same.
She looked great. She hadn't changed. What's all this she's saying?

It seems she's doing well. She found a writing partner, this girl named Mel.
They wrote a book series they could sell to Warner Brothers. It became the show Roswell.

What!!?? She wrote ROSWELL?  
   

That's a Sci-Fi show. It was on for three seasons. And if I didn't already have enough reasons
to be pissed at myself for blowing such a good thing, this girl, my first love, is living my dream.

She's got such an exiting life. I thought she'd be in Scarsdale, some lucky guy's wife
with two or three kids I rather never know, but no... She goes and makes a TV show.

If you think I'm jealous, I'm not. I'm proud. That was my best friend once and look at her now.
She's come a long way from that old small town. I'm thrilled for her I think I'll spread it around
Cause I know that she'd be happy for me.

So I e-mailed the link to my good friend, he said "Chris, you better check out that page again.
It could be just a simple coincidence, but did you see the name of the show's villian?"

Sheriff Valenti don't take any shit from no alien.
He's such and asshole. I hope he's swallowed and shit out on the surface of the sun.

Does she hate me? I can't tell (but it certainly appears so, don't it?). She made me the villian on Roswell.
Most people say "Fuck you, go to hell." She took it further and put me there herself.

I was seventeen when I met this girl and something about her was out of this world.
Now I'm nothing to her, but some big ass jerk. And I think I found
Wreckage in Roswell. I found some wreckage in Roswell.
Very ugly wreckage. Very hateful wreckage. I found wreckage in Roswell.
And it Burns
