dedicated to the passing of my high school principle... an old family friend

i know it's late, but i'm real sorry
didn't want you to die
feel so sad, you were special to me
is this the final goodbye

i know that you're in heaven
sad to say your passing was pleasant
i know it's hard to keep from thinking of you in that altered life
i didn't like to see you dying, but it's better on the other side

college has made me old
my past is all alone
you were there i know
watching me go home
