Badly Drawn boy A Minor Incident Lyrics

Last updated: 01/28/2009 10:00:00 AM

There's nothing I could say to make you try to feel okay,
And nothing you could do to stop me feeling the way I do.
And if the chance should happen that I never see you again,
Just remember that I'll always love you.

I'd be a better person on the other side I'm sure.
You'd find a way to help yourself,
And find another door.
To shrug off minor incidents,
And make us both feel proud.
I'd just wish I could be there to see you through.

You always were the one to make us stand out in a crowd,
Though every once upon a while your head was in a cloud.
There's nothing you could never do to ever let me down,
And remember that I'll always love you.

Maybe you should try reading the book, Sophie. Anyways, as for the line "Remember that I'll always love you", if you recall, it comes at the point where he is reading his mother's suicide note. So, it isn't to do with anything mushy, and the soundtrack was actually made by Badly Drawn Boy SPECIFICALLY for this movie.

A Minor Incident? I Think Not. | Reviewer: Sophie | 8/11/05

So, About A Boy, was another Hugh Grant film, all English accents and dry wit, which no-one has anything against I'm sure. But his films are generally spoiled by a tragic soundtrack (think Notting Hill-Ronan Keating) that actually makes you want to tear your own eyes out rather than watch again. But the whole of the About A Boy soundtrack makes you melt. From start to finish it inspires you to find a lonely ten year old boy of your own and treat him like a son, because his mother's depressed. And then you can spend Christmas with them and buy him a CD that will make him cool! And then he'll get 'that' girl, and you'll no longer be an island, and everyone will feel warm and fuzzy inside, all year round.
Maybe. Well, ok, a slight exageration perhaps, but nevertheless. The musical highpoint of the film (other than a brief burst of Rainy Days And Mondays, obviously) is A Minor Incident. I, for one, cannot recall a song that says 'Just Remember I'll Always Love you' in that doesn't make me want to gag. But for some reason, be it the soft guitar, or the fact that you're hysterical by the time the tune kicks in anyway, you actually believe that the Badly Drawn Boy blokey loves you. And for this reason, amongst others, the song should be hailed as a masterpiece. Up there with Rainy Days And Mondays.
