Buddy (To Evan Dando)
Poem By Aram Stefanian
A red and yellow falling leaf outside my window
Reminds me of my shattered sympathetic heart.
I wish I could never with my adolescence part
To be on the same wavelength with Evan Dando.
I kinda shoulda sorta woulda loved my drug buddy;
To get out of the blue funk I got laughing grass.
I'll always be there when things come to a pretty pass.
How to survive in the asphalt jungle he has to study.
Yeah, I saw nothing in his bedroom eyes but myself.
Aboard a ship without a rudder we sail up the lake.
Our past seems distorted and useless, it's a fake.
In the far hereafter I'm gonna be his merry elf.
