Are you out there
can you hear me, my friend?
I would like to sit down with you, and laugh again
Things run through my mind that I know would make your smile
big enough to close your eyes

Sometimes I feel like I gave up the right to say that I miss you
Cause there were times when I didn’t try as hard as I could
But you live with what you done, what else is there to do
I keep the good parts in my heart when I think of you
Each time the first few notes of a song take me back to places where I once belonged
I see you young and strong

In your jean jacket with rock and roll patches
Hair hanging down over the collar
Playing air guitar in that old red tomato car
With a beer between your legs
blessed as you were gonna get, rocking like a hurricane

I rode down New Scotland Avenue on my way to go spend some time with you.
past our favorite bar and our high school and the ball field where we all watched you
Become a state champ 25 years ago
Now its hard to get across a room without your brother Joe
Its just as hard on him I know

Down at St. Peter’s, I brought you candy and the Times Union Sports page
you had a buzz cut and your body was so thin I couldn’t find your face
You said they’re working on a new drug, gonna knock the MS out
hey remember Sunday nights down in the basement hanging out
when you laughed, and I saw you again
