Well it's been years since I seen you
We used to be pretty good friends
It was about the time you moved out of state
That we never called each other again
Sure we are Facebook friends
But really what kind of communication is that?
How are the wife and kids?
Oh you don't have any kids? I'm sorry about that.
Who are you anyway?
I used to know you so well.
Remember when we went to see Mates of State?
Remember ultimate frisbee every Tuesday night?
Remember when we rocked out in our band in the basement?
Remember that time at Charly's when you got in a fight?
We were once close friends
but now you just feel like a stranger to me.
Now we meet for drinks to try to catch up
but all we have to talk about are all the memories.
Who are you anyway?
I used to know you so well.
But how ya' been?
How ya' been?
