My old friend, I recall The times we had hanging on my wall I wouldn’t trade them for gold Cause they laugh and they cry me Somehow sanctify me They’re woven in the stories I have told And tell again
My old friend, I apologize For the years that have passed Since the last time you and I Dusted off those memories But the running and the races The people and the places There’s always somewhere else I had to be Time gets slim, my old friend
My old friend, this song’s for you Cause a few simple verses Was the least that I could do To tell the world that you were here Cause the love and the laughter Will live on long after All of the sadness and the tears We’ll meet again, my old friend
Goodbye, goodbye Goodbye, goodbye
My old friend, my old friend Goodbye, goodbye
Such a fitting song for you, Troy. I wish I could have spent more time with you these past few months. I thought of you every day and will continue to as long as I live. You were one of the good ones, boo. We made some good memories and although you’ve gone up to Heaven, those memories will keep you alive here on Earth. I may not understand why you had to leave so soon but I know you’re in a better place where there is no suffering. Don’t worry about all of us down here. We miss you like crazy but we know you’re whole and happy again.
