how I wish you could see through my eyes tonight
oh friends I've left behind
I never said goodbye
because
it's too hard to explain
I kept hearing her name
so I just ran away... mm-hmm

and so I write these words
to let ya know I'm still
alive
and I have
so much
to say

Ana you have grown into a fashion queen
singing melodies
of abba with such ease
dancing
like nobody is looking
and you don't have a care
your honesty is bare.. mm-hmm

Michelle you have been blessed with such a perfect face
who cares what pictures say
a thousand words are fake
not mine
they will stand the test of time
a hundred years from now
I will sing this til I'm out.. of breath

Jeremy I don't know what to say to you
cause you are not my friend
you're my brother til we're dead
of course
that just goes without saying
and though we seldom talk
you're always in my thoughts... mm-hmm

Austin I have saved the best for last because
when on the verge of death
you were my only friend
and I
am eternally grateful
with these remaining days
I'll try my best to repay.. this debt

and though this song will end
I may sing to you again
I don't know when
but some
day soon

everyone I'm sorry that I ran away
I just wanted you to be
completely proud of me
I tried
even though I have failed
I will meet you by the tree
in a decade, maybe three... or four

    General CommentSuch an amazingly beautiful song! I love how real the lyrics are and that you can really tell they come from actual experiences. The melody and lyrics are just so touching and the playing just tops it off! Seriously beautiful work Kevin :)
