My, friends, I never really thought you'd go,
But, then, we know that's the way it happens here
Now time is like cat's cradle in my hands
We gather up the strands much to slowly
The refugees are gone... They take their separate paths,
Obliterate the past, figures in an ash shroud
Susie, I guess you're on your way to be a star,
But I don't know where you are, the only time I seem
To see you is on T.V.
It's so easy just to slip away...

Mike!
It's a year or two since I've seen you...
I might
Have dropped you a line if I'd had time
