Andy's Song

Andy’s Song

there’s the bang then there’s the sound
echos round and round and round
my head like empty steel chamber

i heard it through the grapevine
about your dice with death this time
he wasn’t so forgiving in his wager

but you always wanted to play
and you didn’t mind losing
even for the sake of say, me

you know i looked from here for your eyes
but your eyes no longer shine
and that’s when i knew
i’d lost you for the prize

i awoke with a smile
for the first time in a while
i think i saw you somewhere in a dream i had

it’s strange for me just to think 
once you were everything
now you’re anything i can do just to remember that

and i hope it’s better weather
than when we walked that road together

you know i roamed the depths of your despair
in case i found you there
but all that i could find were footprints leading nowhere

i used to worry it was true
that this world couldn’t spin without you
i think of all the things you said
about how i’m alive ‘cause of you
it’s ‘cause of you
it’s ‘cause of you

there’s the bang then there’s the sound
echos round and round and round
my head like pretty vacant stranger
