Kevin Gilbert - Song For A Dead Friend lyrics

Danny my friend
I think you knew me better than I ever knew you
Cause you read every chapter
And I just glossed right over them and pretended I knew
But I believed in you
I loved you for your brilliance
and your way of making everything absurd
And I relied on you
To make me see the foolishness
of paragraphs that were better as one word

What could I have told you to make you think again
We draw the same conclusions but we choose a different end

When you tear it down it only looks more ragged
And when you build it up it only looks more fake
So why not let it be at least until tomorrow
And then you just might see your sad mistake
Cause life has more to give that what you take

Danny my friend
Forgive me if I break our rule but I think it's overdue
I really cared about you
I didn't think that I could love a friend
as much as I loved you
And we were always friends
We were Captain Jim and Billy
the Super-human Crime-avenging Twins
I'm gonna miss you
I truly am alone now
because there's no one to congratulate my sins

I wish I could have been for you a more consistent friend
The chapters that I skipped I'm going to have to read again

But when I tear it down it only looks more ragged
And when I build it up it only looks more fake
But I can't let it be because part of me died with you
And there's lots of pages missing from my book
You had more to give than what I took.
