Apologies first and foremost
It's been years since I've called or wrote
It's funny how I ignore
The most vital thinking that we were always close
Lord knows that I never meant to forget
But my sense of sentiment, is inept
You were right it's evidential
I've been better with my instrumentals than friends
Here I am again, never learn
Can't return a call, show concern
At times I think I've changed, then again
I'm still writing letters that I never send
Can't make amends, can't reverse
All I got is pencils, pens and a verse
You deserve the years I disappeared
Not a song, it's been...


So long since I been without you
Remember me and you were like family?
No song could ever amount to
The memories that we had, can we
Hold on though this time is borrowed?
I'm away where you can’t always stay
Go on though I cannot follow
But I swear you’ll never hear me say
"So long."

I know it's a bit late to notice it
But today I flipped this in my photo picks
And there was one with me and you laughing
Our inside jokes were everlasting
Man you had to see it we had the biggest grins
Damn, we were the best of friends
Now wishing we could say it in the present tense
But we begin every sentence with "Remember when..."
And yeah, we had a blast but what about now?
The only time we chat is when I’m in town
Friends when convenient, I can't believe it
We were tight since back when Mike was singing "Beat It"
I mean it how could it come to this
Out of everyone I lost, of one I miss
Is you and only you, you were the truest comrade a homie knew
It's been...


So long since I been without you
Remember me and you were like family?
No song could ever amount to
The memories that we had, can we
Hold on though this time is borrowed?
And I'm away where you can’t always stay
Go on though I cannot follow
But I swear you’ll never hear me say
"So long."


Hard to top a simple rule, not a single thought
Though my mind’s aloof, and these shingles got but a single truth
That my life just stops when I'm missing you
Given to melancholy other days, staring at the skyline of the bay
Thought I saw your silhouette, felt the tears ‘cause I know that you’ve been dead for seven years

Some wounds will never heal, when we realize that I'm still here
No matter what the burden that happened in the past
It’s sad to let it burn the friendship that we had so let’s
Value what we have left and just forget all of the past debts
Though I’ve done some things that I can’t excuse
I hope you understand I'm still the man you knew
But thank you, I don’t say yet enough but thank you
I know it’s not enough to thank you but I'm grateful
No living creation could ever replace you
So I pray you and I will never stray to a place too far away to erase you
Though it’s painful I remain strong
I'll stay faithful even though it’s been...


So long since I been without you
Remember me and you were like family?
No song could ever amount to
The memories that we had, can we
Hold on though this time is borrowed?
And I'm away where you can’t always stay
Go on though I cannot follow
But I swear you’ll never hear me say
"So long."


Apologies first and foremost
I gotta stop talking to your
Ghost
But you keep talking to me
These dreams that got me walking in my sleep
Please stop reminding me, can’t subtract it,
Flashbacks did the accident
Broken glass, car window, broken as you fall into comatose
So I pray Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Will you say the only that matters most is in vain
The more you hold close the more it fades
The more it replays, more a curse
Here I am again, with my verses
You deserve the years I disappeared
Not a song, it’s been...


So long since I been without you
Remember me and you were like family?
No song could ever amount to
The memories that we had, can we
Hold on though this time is borrowed?
And I'm away where you can’t always stay
Go on though I cannot follow
But I swear you’ll never hear me say
"So long."
