Amanda's Memory:
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Those are our boys onstage, they¹re our best friends, and I swear we¹d hang the moon for them if they asked. Let your hair down. dance. Everyone is watching, or maybe it just feels like that. One person is watching and they seem like everything to me. "Oh yeah" *nonchalance* "we're taking a roadtrip to the austin in the fall." Floating in the dimly lit streets... "We¹re all meeting up at his house"...."I don¹t know, call home and get your curfew extended. Tonight's going to be a good night."

The hazy pink stars and sky, the horizon lifting with dirt and grime. driving too fast. too young. And the last thing I remember? We walked to the highway overpass and watched the sun rise over the dallas skyline

"I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

Just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love"

In the spring of 2004, Willie and his band mates decided to perform at open mic night at the school literary festival.  They sang a cover of "Soco Amaretto Lime" by Brand New.  They did well, had a great time and were asked to perform before the entire school at the awards assembly.  As they were walking on stage to pick up their prize, it was announced they won the best original song category.  A stunned look crossed their faces and then they started laughing as they explained to the student emcee that their entry had said they were singing a "Brand New" song.
