about

A song about a friend of mine. The middle part turned out better than expected.

lyrics

It's been so long since I heard your words
I'd forgotten what they meant to me
If only I'd paid more attention
It feels just like yesterday
Farther in space but not in mind
Try to remember the days gone by
Always offered a cold root beer
Happily jamming with nothing in mind

One of a few in a place of none
Such a poor environment
Trying to be a bit different
Trying to do something unusual

Play me a song, sing me a story or something
Let me escape from this cruel, cruel world
Let's do something ere the world stops
Play some music, learn something new
Take a trip to see your new abode
See you flourish in your new life
Show us around and what it means to live
Live a new life away from that hell
