WHERE WE USED TO SIT

from by Jon Creeden

lyrics

looking back I remember the day,
your cloudy eyes turned a yellowish shade
and we couldn't sit beneath that old tree anymore
but instead we were confined to the hospitals first floor

they crawled out from the woodwork like roaches from my sink
to tell me that they knew you when and they think
I should visit you more often, oh they sure do like to
come out when they know you're going to die

and that's the place where we used to sit
all summer long in the breeze
and in the autumn when the Chestnuts fall
I imagine that you're still beneath that tree

now I'm standing in the middle of condolence lines
hearing its all for the best and it must be his time
all these solemn faces did they know you that well?
and of which version would they all choose to tell

as for me I knew you as much as anyone
and you could be a real prick sometimes
but more often I found that you were looking out for me
the wind on my face, I never felt so free.

and that's the place where we used to sit
all summer long in the breeze
and in the autumn when the Chestnuts fall
I imagine that you're still beneath that tree

And wherever you might be now,
hope you know what I'm saying somehow
as much as some want to believe that you're a saint
a much different picture I would choose to paint
of you as you were and always will be
someone, who was always there for me
and always will be
