Measure my love in city blocks and subways.
Carry it safe over mountains, valleys and lakes.
The past few months have felt like the Sunday
before the first day of 7th grade.
And I'm so fucking scared of the first day I wake up
and forget you're not there to come hang out or hold me up.

I'll never be able to repay you for everything you've done for me.
My friends, you breathed new air into my lungs when I was sure that I was drowning.

I want to get drunk with Nate and Abram by a fire at Travis and Jen's.
Go see Derby in Vermont with Sarah, Erin and Kim.
Hang with Bryce and Jay and Liz and all the kids at 56.
Start a Billy Joel tribute band with Matt and Sean and Chris.

You are all examples of the reasons I still sing.
My friends, you breathed new air into my lungs when I was sure that I was drowning.
