Priceless Friend

We would have agreed that we had a blast
During our turbulent mood shifting teenage past
Our laughter fills the gaps in the drum beats
As you are quick on your fingers playing the seat
And video games who is undoubtedly the best
You say how your parents misunderstand
I say how cool it would be to start a band
At each others house we’d have lived without a doubt
The grass in the field we’d engrave a route
People would wonder why we are stifling our snickers as tears travel down
Our need to giggle at any fart sounding sound
We’d see whose body would tire out
Who could drink a gallon out of the spout
How many cups of milk could one drink
How long without a shower until we stink
Who has the highest grade in P.E.
Who could swim out the furthest in the sea
You would win some I would win others
We’d be tight like blood related brothers
We’d share in joy and fall in pain
Together we’d keep each other sane
It would have been the greatest friendship ever known
But you moved away and left me all alone
The pain I felt cannot be translated for you to understand
There was no music or a punk rock band
There was no rout or laughter in the air
There was no spending the night or stupid dares
I lost more than laughter in the middle of the night
Or our first and only fist fight
I lost more than a partner in crime
Or our own laughter at our made up hand signs
I had a beginning but lost a middle and an end
But above all I lost you a priceless friend

Artist's Description

Also not something that I have any personal dealings with. Just the idea of a friendship like that from the moment of youth that lasted until now is what sparked this.
