Lyrics
There?s a hole in my world where you used to be
And it ain?t closin? anytime soon
The way you were gone was so suddenly
As the sun stole the night from the moon

As much as we hope for a final goodbye
There?s times maybe it?s just as well
But I?d like one more chance for one more for the road
Or to have one more story to tell

Now when I listen to music you played
It means even more
Doubt the ripples your spirit has made
Will ever reach shore

Rememberin? times you?d get on a roll
Doin? a bit while we laughed
Or sharin? a stage at Cogan?s or Tuck?s
Then toast our success with a draft

We both had a dream with a musical spin
We?d practice all night to prepare
Conning ourselves we were gonna be stars
Each moment so precious we shared

Now when I listen to songs that you played
It means even more
Doubt the ripples your spirit has made
Will ever reach shore

I still wanna talk, take a long walk
Wishin? for more time with you
The dream on that day, why?d you slip away
When we still had so much to do

So as sweet as the song of an angel may be
I?ll never see it as fair
I?ve cried and I?ve laughed but above all regret
That it?s so soon that you?re over there

Now when I listen to songs that you played
It means even more
Know the ripples your spirit has made
Won?t never reach shore
