anyone here know who goes forward who can stay
did you miss your call 
you were having such a ball
you never noticed me at all

daily thinking can always bring me down
back to the ground
you were making quite a sound
you never looked at what I found

messages were passed along the line down to the end
from hand to hand
you were hard to understand
you never saw what I had planned

I must admit my life has only just begun
to take its toll
and it isn't very old
I never saw you as a soul
as I watched you losing hold
I was getting too involved
I never thought it could be told
