Virginia I had a dream you invited us over.
You still lived on the street where you laid down for good.
We all sat on the floor as my kids swam around us.
You smoked cigarettes like I knew you would.
We were worried about your personal salvation.
Was it heaven or hell that you saw when your eyes closed?
You smiled at us floating high above the question
Like you knew something we didn't know.
Virginia I had a dream we were closer than brothers.
Singing "Pictures of You", crashing cars, skipping school.
We drove all over town as the days blurred around us.
We wore out your cassettes, we were nobody's fools.
They were worried about our high school graduation.
They read us a poem, "Oh The Places You'll Go!"
You smiled it off, floating high above the question
Like you knew something they didn't know.
