Featuring Dave Koz, Marcus Miller and Arthur Thompson

Got the news on friday mornin'
But a tear I couldn't find
You showed me how I'm supposed to live
And now you showed me how to die

I was lost till sunday morning
I work up to face my fear
While writing you this goodbye song
I found a tear

Chorus
I'm gonna miss that smile
I'm gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
'Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I'm cryin for me

I got up and dialed your number
And your voice came on the line
With that old familiar message
I'd heard a thousand times it just said
Sorry that I missed you
Leave a message and god bless
I know you think I'm crazy
But I had to hear your voice again

I'm gonna miss that smile
I'm gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
'Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I'm cryin for me

So play your upside down left handed
Backwards bass guitar
And I'll see you on the other side
Superstar

I'm gonna miss that smile
I'm gonna miss you my friend
Even though it hurts the way it ended up
I'd do it all again
So play it sweet in heaven
'Cause that's right where you want to be
I'm not cryin cause I feel so sorry for you
I'm cryin for me

I'm still cryin'
I'm cryin for me
I'm still cryin'

    I lost my dad oct 26th 2008 which was so hard and last year , about 4 month sago I lost my best friend forevery, I was with him his last month by his side until he passed, literally with him holdin his hand and talkin to him when he slipped away from cancer and when I hear this song, I cry so hard because I miss them both so much, the 2 men in my life I loved with all my heart and soul. Thanks Toby for all your music, very heart felt so deep inside me.
