A song about what she's missing
Hey kid, I know life's been dragging you down,
You feel like you ain't got a friend in this town
Your dad up and left, you wish your mom would
You'd fake yourself a smile if you thought you could,
But still there's no point to wearing a lie

You're drowning in this sea for hopeful people,
If sorrow don't kill you, then lack of sleep will
And you didn't look up 'til you'd hit the wall
Life seems so great, and you feel so small
But I won't sit here and watch you cry

'Cause you and me, we've seen it all before,
Back when the best of times weren't yet times of yore
Slaying some dragons and winning the day with you,
Tell me please, girl, those moments will stay with you,
Hope I mean enough to keep you from running away and you
Know that I'm always yours, should the need arise

Well, an artist is nothing without a Muse,
And I can't be happy when you're singing the Blues
So I did what I could to brighten your face
Held you so close, tried to slow up your pace
Dropped my pen so I could take your hand

I know I can't always say it like I mean to sometimes,
Just wish you could hear what's unsaid in my rhymes-
We're two more good people cut a raw deal,
I know you've been lied to, I know how you feel,
Though I know that I can't understand

'Cause you and me, we've seen it all before,
Back when the best of times weren't yet times of yore
Slaying some dragons and winning the day with you,
Tell me please, girl, those moments will stay with you,
Hope I mean enough to keep you from running away and you
Know that I'm always yours, should the need arise

The next flight for Logan leaves here at Nine
It lures you away with Strawberry Wine
You always did talk about leaving this town
Wonder how you'll feel when your plane touches down
About the guy missing you in LA...

I know you'll find whatever you need
I'm sure you'll bring Boston up to your speed
But kid, you know I miss your flair
So why not one more Truth or Dare?
Would you be here if I'd asked you to stay?

'Cause you and me, we've seen it all before,
Back when the best of times weren't yet times of yore
Slaying some dragons and winning the day with you,
Tell me please, girl, those moments will stay with you,
Hope I mean enough to keep you from running away and you
Know that I'm always yours, should the need arise

I hope you know...
I hope you know...
I'd still be yours

God, I hope that you find what you're looking for
Someday you'll see that I'm what you're looking for
The hard part is over, now it's our time to explore
Whatever it is these blank pages have in store
