All of my friends that killed themselves
They had pretty smiles
Randy crazy hat and his crazy hair
Dance floor dancing wild
Why didn’t you call me?

Mike with his guitar and his scrambled words
Adam with his music playing
Charlie was still pretty with a sore in his mouth
Richard I miss your complaining
Why didn’t you call me?

I’m so mad at you
I was one phone call away
I’m so mad at you
I was one phone call away

I’d have climbed to the top of your bridge
Swam through the ditch to your van
Tested my running skills to get to your room
Lit a candle just as fast as I can
Why didn’t you call me?

All of my friends immortalized in this song
It feels like a waste of time
I know if you were all here you would sing along
But then you wouldn’t own these lines
I should have called you

I’m so mad at you
I was one phone call away
I’m so mad at you
I was one phone call away
