All the people

By: Alan Berger

If you try real hard
You still can not see them in the air
But they are still there
If you try real hard
You can not hear them right there
Hey
I never said
It is fair

All the people and pets
That loved you
Before they died
Still stay by your side

I once had a blind cat
A true love was he
I now know
That now he can see
You see him with me?

All the people and pets
That loved you before they died
Did not travel that far
They have your ear and eye
You are still on their radar

I twice had a wife
Both are through
But I know
I am still sleeping
With number two

All the people and pets
That loved you
Before they died
Are still here for the ride
Are still here when you slip and slide

I had a child
A lovable wild child
Running wild
Was here one day
Then the next
Not on file
There is he now
He is the one with the smile
Like they have all the while

All the people and pets
That loved you
Before they died
Wait for you to join them
Wait right by your side
