(A. Meade)
Unreleased, written about John Spence, who committed suicide in 1988.

My friend you're gone
Someday I hope we meet again

I look unto the left and then I look unto the right
I see your faded figure almost every single night
Is my imagination playing tricks on me
But in my heart you see, you will always be...

My friend, you're gone
Someday I hope we meet again

You're singin' in a band with a mic on in your hand
That way that you would sing really made me feel all grand
You left your friends alone right upon this earth
I wish that would've seen how much life was worth

My friend, yeahhh, you're gone
Someday, someday, someday, now I hope we meet again

Yeahhh I hope we meet again now hey yeahh yeaah yeahh yeahhh yeahhhohhh

Well, Johnny made us laugh but now he made us cry
It couldn't have been that bad to make him want to die
Now it's too late to find your destiny
I wish you would've waited longer here with me

My friend yeaahh you're gone
Someday I hope we meet again
My friend you're gone
Someday someday someday now I hope we meet again
I hope we meet again
John my friend hey yeah
I hope pleease yeah I know we'll meet again yeahhhh
I'm missing you my friend I hope we meet again
I'm missing you my friend I hope we meet again
Well I'm missing you my friend well, I hope we meet again
Well I'm missing you my friend well, I hope we meet again
I'm missing you yeah hey I hope we meet again
