I never thought I'd miss this, spending every night under the Jersey skies. Laying with my feet in the sand, watch the waves break and bend as they carry my heart with them.

I remember racing the sunset all the way home, singing along to every punk sock rong on the radio. We screamed every word, hoping they were true.

And hey, the dirges that we wrote that day, in your cold, dark basement right before you moved away, are all that I have left from way back when we thought we had it made. Before everything changed and we all lost our way. From when we used to sit out on the hoods of our cars, our eyes glued to the stars, just hoping, for once, the sun would never, ever, rise.

Last night I sat outside and watched every snowflake die. Just like good old times, just like good old times. And I swear, when I catch that same old train home to see you again, all I want to hear you say is, "It's good to have you home, kid, you were missed while you were away".
