Tommy stepped away
From the world for awhile
He only left a picture
Of a seventh grade smile
He got in between
A mother's lost hope
And a father's lost dream
A head of ideas that don't mean anything

Tommy had a problem
With being alone
He spent everyday of his life on his own
But there's no one to blame
It's hard to keep friends
When you keep moving away
The cards and letters
Don't mean anything
They don't mean anything

When you go, you're gone
And if you feel you can't go on
You can always come home

Tommy stepped away
From the world for awhile
His first few steps, they felt like a mile
They never could believe
He said good-bye and they just watched him
Leave
All the things he knew don't mean anything
They don't mean anything

And if you go too far
You might never come back
And I might go too far
And I won't ever some back
And when you go i'll wait for you
And when you go i'll be there too
