Lyrics
Last time I saw you was a while ago
Figured I?d see you around
Said catch you later, how was I to know
You?d soon be gone without a sound

Now all I got?s my memory of you
How we resisted growin? old
Can?t help but smile at things we used to do
Those memories are wrapped in gold

It seems like it?s not real, like you?re not really gone
Almost feel you here still hanging ?round with everyone
Don?t understand it, what a tragic waste to leave so young

I hear the comments, both innocent and cruel
?Bout how it?s all in God?s plan
It?s no consolation, to what extent it?s true
Not sure I wanna understand

It seems like it?s not real, like you?re not really gone
Almost feel you here still hanging ?round with everyone
Don?t understand it, what a tragic waste to leave so young

No one could ever tell you what to do
Some guys were never meant to tame
But what I swear, as my salute to you
Is to guard the passing of your flame

It seems like it?s not real, like you?re not really gone
Almost feel you here still hanging ?round with everyone
Don?t understand it, what a tragic waste to leave so young
