lyrics

I once knew a man like me he taught me how to tie my shoes
He reminds me of you

His eyes were either green or blue I never learned to tell the difference
If that makes any sense

He used to tell me stories about war and golden glories of the past
How quickly three years have passed

I'm sure you'll find what you've been needing in the place where you would least expect
I looked and he was correct

So cheers to the greatest of them all
God bless them for teaching us to fall

The world moves on and I forget you're gone
But you're not gone, you live on in this song
The stars shine bright the night has just begun
But you're not gone, you're not gone as long as I sing this song

The day he left he left his coat just hanging on the old forgotten shelf
So I took it for myself

I cried myself to sleep that night and dreamed of how we used to speculate
That tomorrow would come late

Then I remembered what he said to look where I would least expect to find
And so I found him in my mind

So let's rejoice and celebrate and honor those who've said their last goodbye
And may we find them when we die

So cheers to the greatest of them all
God bless them for teaching us to fall

The world moves on and I forget you're gone, you're gone
But you're not gone, you live on in this song
The stars shine bright the night has just begun
But you're not gone, you're not gone as long as I sing this song
