Write Me A Letter

Today I saw someone from behind
I thought of you
My heart beat uneven
When I recalled the time we knew

You would have been laughing
If you had seen me stand and stare
I wondered what happened
To all the dreams that we thought wed do
I know weve changed but I still miss you

Sit down and write me a letter
Tell me whats going on
If you do it I know you will feel much better
Knowing I am not so alone
Dont stay incommunicado
Give it another whirl
I wish youd open your window just a little
Send your breeze around the world

Sometimes I start thinking
Oh, then I remember when
We are all were just children
Blowing dandelions in summer wind

No matter how long its been since I have seen your face
I still smell the summer hay
And the backyard fire we lit that day
We took off running in several ways
They told your grandma
We got found out
I miss having someone to laugh with about it

Good friends, old souls
We were planted long ago
Deep roots, long limbs
For waving in the howling wind
Ill always think of you
In a kind and gentle way
Were not yet through
With all the dreams we thought wed do
I know weve changed but I still miss you
