You were all OK,
You were fine,
But you were a dreamer then,
Most of the time.

I knew what your thoughts were,
The cause of the pain,
You were one in a million,
Did you stay the same?

This was meant to be for life this,
The dugouts where we played, we’ll never see again

I was all good,
I was fine,
You were a tearaway,
But so was I,

I wrote you a letter,
You gave me a call,
But following on from this,
We’ve done nothing at all,

This was meant to be for life this,
The mischief that we made, we’ll never make again
You were meant to stick around here,
But then circumstances change,
The good old days,
Will never be replaced.

So will you tell me,
Do you think that we can do,
Better than this?
