Lyrics

I took a trip once, I was thirteen
I thought I was unlucky but I guess it doesn't mean much
I was a new kid, I wasn't in the cool bunch
Rode the bus to school, and I had to eat the free lunch

There was the girls who said I was corroded
I didn't have the cooties but my ego just folded
Then one day I saw him, underneath the table
Little Larry Donahue was so unstable

Don't let him fade away
That kid from yesterday
He was my only friend
And I'll wait until the end

I took another ride, I was much older
Sometimes I wear a jacket 'cause the weather gets colder
I became a daddy, Larry is a doctor
I still got the memory of sharing that locker

After summer and we went back to school
One year older but still a bunch of fools
All the kids are cooler, class is really hard
We deal like drugs and we shuffle like cards

Don't let him fade away
That kid from yesterday
He was my only friend
And I'll wait until the end

Those kids they love to hate
No one to contemplate
The teachers learn that well
Growing up can be hell

Don't let him fade away
That kid from yesterday
He was my only friend
And I'll wait until the end
