Here is one awesome song I’ve been listening to recently. It’s a song called “Vacuum Bag” by Stroke 9. I discovered this band on Last.FM. The song comes from the album called “Rip it off”.

Last.FM is a great site that has introduced me to many new bands I wouldn’t have found otherwise.

Here are the lyrics to the song Vacuum Bag:

You’ll never know what happened to me
It’s just one of those things
I was sitting by myself
And my thoughts started pouring out
Remember that time on our trip
You asked me where we were going
I said Barcelona
You said that’s not what I meant
Maybe I’ll never get it
I just don’t think I’m like that
Don’t like planning stuff out
It never happens that way
I’m like a vacuum bag
That holds all that old dirt
Remember that time
we found your mom’s valium
and took it

Don’t hate me
Don’t regret me
Don’t ever forget me
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
Don’t say I never loved you

That summer when we wore no shoes
And we danced on the fourth of July
and we listened to your sister’s records
And Frampton came alive
Even then you knew what you wanted
Even then I had no clue
I was just living in the moment
And the moment was all about you
Remember that time in LA
You asked me what we were doing
I said we’re doing fine
You said here we go again
I’m like a vacuum bag
That holds all that old dirt
Remember that time we said
We’d be together
Forever

Don’t hate me
Don’t regret me
Don’t ever forget me
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
Don’t say I never loved you

Cause it matters to me
Can you hear me
Everyday I ask the same thing

Will you ever know what happened to me
It happens everyday
And you wonder what went on
It’s there and than it’s gone
Maybe I’m sentimental
And I start to reminisce
And every time I do
I still want to tell you this

Don’t hate me
Don’t regret me
Don’t ever forget me
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
Don’t say I never loved you
