I read the headline today
It said you'd died and gone away
I knew it wasn't true
But the feeling still came through

My mind is playing tricks but it’s so real
And now I know what you mean to me
And day by day it’s no big deal
‘cause in the end we’ll all be free

There will be headlines for you
But probably not for me too
You will have seen things that I’ll never see
And you’ve done things that I’ll never do

But we’ll play on the other side
Boarding as one with no fear for the ride
Circling and swinging and taking the slide
Hoping to never come down

Oh what a comical pair
Enjoying the fun of the fair
There will be music, we get to choose it
With all of our instruments there

As we play you can listen for free
Your gift to the world is what you will see
Sharing a feeling you never could know
And all that you gave to me

I read the headline today
It said you'd died and gone away
Although I knew it was not true
All the feeling still came through
