Crispy blazer, trouser creases
Careful, caring and clean shaven with a dash of aftershave

All the boardgames you could win
Before I got tall enough to shake your hand

Make me laugh, once again
Arguably we were always swimming against the tide

Tom and Jerry in the afternoon
Broke too soon and I'll never tell you
All I wanted was for you to better
Every illness they could throw at you

I can't remember what I wore

Miss your crosswords on my arrival,
Miss you picking berries in photos in my diary

Everything I missed when you weren't
Relive everything I dreamed and tell me I'm mad

To miss something I never saw

Saw you fall to the lounge room floor
If only I'd known to make you laugh
All I wanted was for you to better
Every illness they could throw at you

20 years too late and you'd say you missed something
But really, I missed the best part of you

Tell me I can't long for this
Tell me I've held onto this
It's all interwoven with your humble relief
The only section that never came around for me
To photosynethesise
And reproduce your swell
