Lyrics

My buddy Stevie, I loved him well We had some laugh, he was sound as a bell Our little lives, they ran parallel. He played with fire and got burnt as hell. And I'm remembering little things we'd done-- We'd bummed a trail out to the beach in the sun We'd steal some ice pops, and laugh and run, And through the sand dunes with finger guns But one day Stevie got bitten by a bug He was fascinated by the life of a thug He felt a weakling and he craved some power But the thug's existence can soon turn sour I'm missing you today, I'm missing you today. What I would give to see you smiling back at me And what I wouldn't do for one last laugh with you My buddy Chris, he was quiet, but tough And to his face, you wouldn't call him a puff We'd done the boxing, had many's the scrap To this young warrior, I'll tip my cap. In Celtic times, it wasn't seen as wrong Til the Roman Empire with the shame came along They called this love evil and they done much harm But if you're hurting no one, you'll be in God's arms. Well, Chris and Stevie, I miss you both Two more people cut down from a rope It breaks my heart that you went so far To all young people, be proud of who you are I'm missing you today, I'm missing you today, Today. I'm missing you today, I'm missing you today, I'm missing you today, I'm missing you today. What I would give to see you smiling back at me, And what I wouldn't do for one last laugh with you. Talk to me and tell me how you feel, ah Lean on me, I'm here, my love is real, ah. Talk to me and tell me how you feel, ah Lean on me, I'm here, my love is real.
