wanted me to drop by say hi
& I went because I’d heard
he was dying & wanted to see
me & Judy split he says
like tears are hiding close by
yeah I heard some story
she found you & her friend?
he scowled like a dog at that
just a thoughtless fling y’know?
anyway I asked you to drop by
talk of times how we let our friendship slide
can you remember how that happened?
could it be the money you borrowed
the music you stole from me
you saw me broke & walked away?
I don’t recall one bit of that he sighed
I thought it was about the time
we shared that apartment
I couldn’t pay the rent ran away
forgot to drop you a line
to tell you I’d met someone new
I’d see you right if not in cash in kind
can I get you a drink? I can’t I’m dying
busted heart broken body mind all gone
yeah ok make it strong & I’ll stay a little longer
I always was a sucker for your lines
