My friends all use the past tense when they speak of you
And so to make the comfortable
I use it too
They's soon have me committed
If they only knew
What I believe with all my heart is true

I know you're there
Although it's nothing I can prove
I know you're there
By just the way the shadows move
And though I said goodbye
and finally let you go
I know you're there
Although I don't know how I know

I know you see
The crazy things I sometimes do
They make you laugh
So I still do them just for you
And when I'm entertaining all the friends I love
I know you see
And that you're laughing from above

You needn't panic
I'm not consulting any guru
Calling psychics, or practicing with voodoo
I'm not manic or depressive
I just miss you

So I'll go on
Enjoying every lovely day
Because I'm sure
You would have wanted it that way
And when there's sorrow
It's no more than I can bear
Because you are
And always were
And always will be there
