there was a time when it felt good to share
to stand in a room filled with noise in the air
and hold someone's arm with brotherly care
when I always picked truth over the option to dare
and whispered in riddles that never were fair
but I can't say--
I must say--
there were burdens to bear
there were times when it called for all black to wear
when I wished I could turn back around to the stair
and jump on the next train with no ticket to spare
disappear into silence and a comfortable chair

not return for a while 'til I saved up my fare...

...and though it seems like I wasn't, I always was there
we have much to catch up on
we have much to share
