My, friends, I never really thought you'd go,
Now time is like cat's cradle in my hands
The refugees are gone... They take their separate paths,
Susie, I guess you're on your way to be a star,
To see you is on T.V.

It's a year or two since I've seen you...
Have dropped you a line if I'd had time
It's my fault too, I play a hermit's role
Hardly ever seem to get outside these days
Can only live in the hope that some day
It's so easy just to slip away...
