we still miss the ones who’ve gone

we had a cassette player with the Ramones on
asphalt dreams when the days got long
and that was all we needed

we were picking apart the scabs on our knees
from grinding the curbs in the summer breeze
and wishing we were bound for California

but it’s over that fence and into their pool
the neighbors don’t like how we keep cool
but hey, rules are over rated

and when some are still here
you miss the one’s who’ve gone

midnight movies and take out food
with jason, freddy and michael too
hey, anybody here got a lighter?

and then black cats echo inside of these walls
a firecracker turn style battle royal
Never in my life have I laughed harder

and some are still here
but you miss the one’s who’ve gone

and I apologize for mistakes that were mine
this shot of Jameson’s for you and the end of our good times

so meet me for a drink over the Last Drop
’cause I’ve got a new tune and it just won’t stop
playing over and over inside my head

thrift shop digging for 517s
sound checks, stellas, and guitar strings
how long ’til we land in California?

sometimes it felt good, sometimes I left mad
one day it got ugly and that was that
but we new it couldn’t last forever

and some are still here
but you miss the one’s who’ve gone

I can’t say why you left us so soon
but I miss every single last one of you
please know – you are remembered
