Michael - we loved you
and now you're gone
Kind of an artist's life has ended
That's way too sad and way too
And like James Taylor said
We always thought some day we'd
Gone are the trips to Greece in those hot summers
When we four sang old folk songs in the car
to stay awake from Petrovec to
Gone are the bets who'd sleep out in the meadow
gnats' prey with swollen eyes in dawn
There's still the
photo that you took when I was sleeping
There's still your voice that
says my name is panic
There's still the boy who saw the sign
And just went in to sell some hardware near
One of your girlfriends said to me "You must be
But if you feel you can't, you have to quit"
she left your studio and i wonder
Was she the one who hurt or was it you?
You took so many pieces of our youth by leaving
lost and gone with you, and I'm here thinking
About a boy who charmed
A charismatic boy with such a staggering smile
Thank you for coming to my wedding
You must have been so weary that cold
I would have loved to say goodbye and see you leaving
given you a rose , my love
And all our memories.
