I can’t call you by your nickname,
I learned to know you a little too late,
we’re missing history, it makes it seem strange,
so I can’t call you by your nickname..
there are lines I could never erase
the way the time flies, her tracks on my face,
the path to your eyes across a big space,
I can’t call you by your nickname,
+++ when it’s lonely at the day’s end,
+++ when a half-song is all you have left,
+++ sing it slowly in your own way,
+++ I saw a half-smile come over your face..

if I got one thing right, if you were there that night,
take it with you as you take flight,
I may not join you, but this song might,
I can’t call you by your nickname,
+++ when it’s lonely at the day’s end,
+++ here’s a new song for all my old friends,
+++ sing it slowly in your own way,
+++ I saw a half-smile come over your face..

there are lines I could never erase,
the way the time flies, that look on your face,
I learned to know you a little too late,
I can’t call you by your nickname,
I can’t call you by your nickname,
I can’t call you by your nickname…
