lukewarm - new end original.

*note* Recently, Jonah (the singer/writer of this song) was offered $150,000 by coca-cola to use this song in a summer2004 commercial. Jonah is currently trying to decide what to do with his song. It has caused quite the stir with all his fans... This story started as a post to livejonah, but now has some more personal content in it, so if it feels like you're reading something twice, keep reading.*/note*

I believe that Jonah will do what feels right to him, and i respect him for that. I respect him for taking time to think about this commercial, and what it would mean, not only to him, but to his fans.
I know for a fact, that no matter what happens, I will always have Lukewarm as my 2003 Summer Song. Trips to the lake and SF with that song blaring in the car. Seeing Jonah live with my friends for the first time, all these things happened over the course of the summer. I fell in love with onelinedrawing and new end. I fell in love with my friends. I remember the first time I heard this song, we were in my friends van, on our way to who knows where and there was singing and smiling and all around good times. It was so nice to have that in my life again. After so much sadness from losing my best friend, i finally felt that way you can only feel when you have friends that you really love and trust. We'd go to shows together. We'd have sleep overs. We were doing everything, and we were very content doing nothing. It was heavenly and perfect, and even though some of the events of the summer 2003 were far from perfect, this song always reminded me of how happy we had been. It always brought me back to that van, to Brandon talking about new end, and to Courtney singing along. It always brought me back to the days when Tyson was sober and in davis every weekend. It still does in fact, remind me of that family I love.
If this commercial deal goes through, the commercial will air in the summer of 2004. the summer after I graduate from high school, and the summer when I'll be moving out. I can just imagine sitting in my new place, so far away from my 03 friends and watching tv, seeing this commercial, and not craving a coke, but craving my friends and becoming very nostalgic. It will always hold a special place in my heart, and be a part of the soundtrack of my life.
I dont know if i support the idea of jonah selling his song, or coke or whatever. I know that I support Jonah, and coca cola and a commercial will not change what this song means to me.



People always tell me how happy I could be,
I'm never gonna find out.
A house in the burbs and a bitchin' SUV is how I'm never gonna wind up.
I didn't know Lennon or King or Kennedy,
but i know one thing, you gotta know yr enemies.

I'm never gonna find out.

Better to suffer it than live under it.
I'm never gonna be just fine, no way.
I'm never gonna be that guy,
I'm never gonna be just fine,
but there are times i need you to remind me.
I'm never gonna be that guy.
I'm never gonna be just fine.
I never wann say that my best days are behind me.
I never want to be lukewarm again.

If being frightened means that I'll always be aware,
I'm always gonna be scared.
Everybody's got a way of working out the world,
like E is M and C squared
There's Budda and Hohammed and JC and all them,
and I'm ivri (Baruch ata HaShem).

there is a summer, its all the time, for every one of us.
