If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, the show opened up with a melancholy Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) strumming his birthday gift … an acoustic guitar.
The gift was given to him by his current lady love, Sam (Kelly Monaco). Earlier, Sam turned down Patrick’s marriage proposal saying she is not ready quite yet and that the timing was bad. Sam related she had to through the next few days, because it would have been her and Jason’s (Billy Miller) fourth wedding anniversary. So with that, Patrick wrote a new song on his brand new guitar, while Sam was remembering Jason as she went through a box of their shared belonging.
As Patrick sang the song, which contained the lyrics: “I can’t tell you what hurt first. The regret of my question, or the truth in your words. Love has shown me there’s always an open door. So be careful what you wish for, ” Sam overheard the good doc singing it, and noted its content. The tune was also played over the action of other scenes at the beginning of the episode.
Many fans took to social media since the episode aired asking Jason Thompson whether or not he penned the tune that he sang? And the answer was a resounding, “Yes” as he clarified on Twitter. Today, Jason posted the lyrics to the song which is entitled “Sailor Short on Wind”.
So, what did you think of the song and it’s lyrics? Did you enjoy seeing Jason sing on GH again? Do you think Patrick should be more upset with Sam turning down his marriage proposal? Share your thoughts below!
