Nate and I could drive ninety-five
let the states fly by, throw the beer cans outside.
On our backs we’d lie, in a field all night
looking at stars, twinkle and shine.
Were they UFO’s? We’ll never know,
but I don’t see him around any more.

Jerry and I could talk all night
let our legs hang over the edge of the roof.
We’d make a fire, in a clearcut field
drink some beers, he never could sleep.
Talk of mysteries like chaos
and why did his mama drink so much
but I don’t see him around any more.

Matt and I had our own band
playing guitars by the Rivanna River.
We’d sit in his car, in a cul-de-sac
get so high, I thought we’d never come back.
And we’d just laugh and laugh and laugh
at the sounds a bird would make,
but I don’t see him around any more.

As time goes by, I realize
the rules have changed but I'm still the same.
Life got strange, and rearranged;
these friends I had are far away.
They live in different countries or
they’re living with their wives
or they’re real into cocaine.
I guess we’ve all grown up somehow
but they’re still with me now
although the rules have changed I’m still the same,
and I hope I see them around some day.
