A twenty for your thoughts
An hour of my time
Where the needle jumps
From the ridiculous to the sublime
I followed your lead from
The garage to the bar
Left her sleeping down the hall
At least she knew I wasn’t far

But would it have meant anything to you?
How could it mean anything to you?

Tried hard to see myself
As you were in your prime
Putting one foot past the other
Up the stairs you used to climb
To ease an aching heart
You’d never even know
From a distance of 5000 miles
Some 50 years ago

And would it have meant anything to you?
How could it mean anything to you?

The list of what I care about
Looks smaller every day
But still, I'm glad we had you for so long
If I got better than I gave
I hope at least it's clear
You’ll always find me wanting one more song

A twenty for your thoughts
An hour of my time
Where the needle jumps
From the ridiculous to the sublime
Watched every move you made
And learned how to survive
On the middle ground we found
Between the stages of our lives

For what it’s worth, it meant a lot to me
All of these things meant a lot to me
