New Lyrics “The Day That You Left Me”

The Day that You Left Me
Written by Josh Damigo
©2013

When you broke my heart
I nearly died
I sat on my mama’s porch
And cried all night
My father said, “Son,
You should be wild and free.”

Yeah you had a lot of nerve
When you kicked me to the curb
I started swearing like a sailor
Screaming every dirty word
So I guess what I am saying,
Is you really left a mark on me
Cause I started having fun
The day that you left me

I started playing banjo
Cause I heard that you liked Jay-Z
I grew out my mustache
Cause you said it looked bad on me
I got myself a new tattoo
Cause you said you like your men clean
I did everything I wanted
And I’ve never ever felt so free
Yeah, I started having fun
The day that you left me

Bada bada bada badada
Bada bada bada badada

I started smoking cigarettes
Cause you said you didn’t like the smell
I got myself a motorbike
Cause you’d worry if I ever fell
I started watching baseball games
Cause you said it was boring as hell
I did everything I wanted
And I’ve never ever felt so free
I started having fun
The day that you left me

Bada bada bada badada
Bada bada bada badada

Sure I miss you sometimes
When I think of all the fun we had
Watching all your daytime soaps
When I wanted to watch “Breaking Bad”
Cuddling every night
Instead of going out with all my friends
Wait… did I say I missed that?
Oops…. No… I don’t.

Bada bada bada badada
Bada bada bada badada

I got myself a kick ass band
Started listening to Duran Duran
Bought myself an RV and
Went camping on Lake Michigan

I danced my ass off every night
Lost my tooth in bar room fight
I just started living life
And kissing every single girl in sight

Yeah I started having fun
Yeah I started having fun
The day that you left me

About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for “Best Acoustic” and “Best Local Recording,” opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third release, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
