"Welcome boy," he said, as I stepped into the light,
"Don't cry, and don't you fear your life,
For you've done goodbye to Paul and you know he'll be alright.
Your mom ain't crying yet, but you know it's just her pride."

"Welcome boy, sit down and rest,
It's been a long road now and, in your way, you did your best.
Your brother wears your shirts that he steal on Friday night
It's just a sleep song regrets and the dreams of flying kind." (?)

"Welcome boy, is there anything on your mind?
You're searching so long, now, I think it's time you find,"
And I said, "What about the girl I always wanted by my side?"
I was just 17, all it took was her smile.
I never said a thing to her, and I don't know why.

And he said,
"She loved you then and she loved you when you died,
She loved you then and she loved you when you died."

She wonders if your dying wish was to see her one more time--
Was she even on your mind?
She wonders if you ever knew,
That the love she had was true,
If she only let it fly.

How many times you passed,
But it happened all too fast,
And she couldn't think in time.
She knows the secret note was you,
Tapping on her window, too,
But she wasn't home that night.

She knows she'll see your face again,
And she will treat you like a friend,
It's just a matter of her time.

And though you're dead and gone,
She don't feel that wrong,
'Cause she'll keep you in mind.
