Lyrics:
I remember hanging out in Long Island City in 1986
You were so cool
Better times have come before these
I thought by now that we'd be married
But I'm still just your loser friend

Then you left town so quickly
By twenty-one you were living with a plastic surgeon
And his girlfriend, too
Sorta waiting for a phone call from your dad
Saying "Casey's back in town, Dave"
But it will never come

Please be the one I hold near
And never drift so far away that I forget
What makes me wish you were here
'Cause it lacks all common sense
Yeah it lacks all common sense
That you don't love me

And all of a sudden we were twenty six
I heard you were living in the sticks
And all your friends had kids
You were bored with life but life was good
Staked out a piece of land in your neighborhood
If you wanna know where you'll go if you never, ever take a shot at making plans with me
Trust me: I've already been there
Take a little while, find a way to get back home
I'll be there waiting

Please be the one I hold near
And never drift so far away that I forget
What makes me wish you were here
'Cause it lacks all common sense
Yeah it lacks all common sense
That you don't love me
