Esta canción de las Shangri Las saca toda mi amargura y tristeza. La culpabilidad, el miedo y la soledad son sensaciones que tan bien han reflejado las canciones de este cuarteto de adolescentes. La mitica banda encabezada por la entonces quinceañera Mary Weiss ha sido una de las más influyentes en la historia del rock. "Remember", "The Leader of the Pack", "Past, Present and Future" reflejan la incomprensión y la angustia adolescente como ningún grupo ha sabido mostrar.

Yo, a las Shangri, siempre las llevare en lo más hondo de mi ser, para atormentarme con la dulzura envenenada de sus versos y sus jóvenes voces al borde del llanto desenfrenado.

I'm gonna hide, if she don't leave me alone.
I'm gonna run away.
'Cause you can never go home anymore

Does this sound familiar?
You wake up every morning,
go to school every day,
spend your nights on the corner,
just passing time away.
Your life is so lonely, like a child without a toy.
Then a miracle: a boy.
And that's called "glad".

Now my mom is a good mom, and she loves me with all her heart.
But she said I was too young to be in love and the boy and I would have to part.
And no matter how I ranted and raved, I screamed, I pleaded, I cried.
She told me it was not really love, but only my girlish pride.
And that's called "bad".

Never go home anymore

Now if that's happened to you, don't let this.
I packed my clothes and left home that night.
Though she begged me to stay, I was sure I was right.
And you know something funny? I forgot that boy right away.
Instead I remember being tucked in bed and hearing my mama say:
"Hush, little baby, don't you cry. Mama won't go away"

You can never go home anymore
I can never go home anymore.

Do you ever get that feeling and wanna kiss and hug her?
Do it now tell her you love her.
Don't do to your mom what I did to mine.
She grew so lonely in the end.
Angels picked her for a friend...
And I can never go home... anymore
And that's called "sad."...
