Dave'd called me up yesterday
Everything he loved had moved away
I felt despair come crawling through that phone
I know the feeling but don't get me wrong
Dave I've always thought that you were touched by fate
It's never easy but why throw it away?
Maybe you were both chasing this
Flirt with death but never kiss her,
Dave

Oh, I keep dreaming, I'll set the scene,
So what's a fiver? Why so mean?
The golden moment, the blinding gleam
It's all over, that's too cheap.

I see you bleed,
I know you feel the squeeze,
But please,
Believe,
The view from on your knees
Deceives
Keep going.
Dave,

I know you're empty, I know you're numb
And you can't function, I know that you're drunk
But Dave I've always felt that you were touched by fate
The thing that gets me is the stupid waste.
So pick it up and don't put it down,
A newer story in another town

I see you bleed
I know you feel the squeeze
Time heals
Believe,
Then it will seem you dreamed these things,
Long Ago.

    General Commentthis song was written by bob about one of his friends who's girlfriend was found dead (after three days of being dead) with an empty heroin packet next to her. the words originally made out that bob was in love with Dave, but he changed them later on.

    General CommentThis is a moving song of inspiring upbeat positive reinforcement and it always puts me in that frame
    of mind when I really listen to the subtle instrumental expressions of the lyrics overall feeling. It relates to you with a steady positive energy. Great song!
