slipped away.

"i didn't get around to kiss you
goodbye on the hand.
i wish that i could see you again,
i know that i can't.
i hope you can hear me
'cause i remember it clearly

the day you slipped away

was the day i found
it won't be the same"

[Avril Lavigne - Slipped Away live @ Budokan]

avril lavigne wrote this song for her grandfather, who passed away while she was on her first tour in europe. the day he died she was playing in dublin.
„i just wanna say, the show tonight goes out to my granpa who passed away today“,
she said and then sang her song tomorrow“, crying.

i went to an avril concert in dusseldorf, september 27 2004, her 20th birthday.
she doesn’t playslipped awaylive very often, but this time she did.
i’ve never experienced anything like this.
the audience went silent as she starting playing the piano.
no one was singing but avril.
people were frozen, some girls were crying, silently.
it was just avril and the piano.
after the song she got the biggest applause ever –
and if we weren’t already standing there would have been
standing ovations!

- Oma, even though it's been more than 10 years, I still miss you every single day! -
