The People I Know

The People I Know

Eric Hutchinson

I’ve got a best friend who I’ve known some time
And after all of these years I’ve got to read his mind
And when he leaves the room I can feel him sigh
As his thoughts they slip out like whispers
Who would’ve know it’d be this hard to wait
For one person to person to communicate
And it never feels dramatic while we complicate
Thank god for old friends they always forgive us

I’m longing for the house remembering all these days
Never done enough, everything feels great
If I am not myself, then who am I pretending to be

And I said how am I gonna get by
Without the help of the people I know
For better or worse we all come together
And they won’t let me die alone
I said they won’t let me die alone

And I’ve got a sister who I barely see
Despite the fact the lives right up the block from me
And when we run into each other on the street
It’s like two strangers soul to soul
When I was younger she was younger too
It seems the space is the only thing that really grew
And now we’re both grown up and still without a clue
Thank god for family they always forgive us

I’m thinking of the house where we were always raised
In every family tree some history remains
If I am not myself, then who am I pretending to be

And I said how am I gonna get by
Without the help of the people I know
For better or worse we all come together
And they won’t let me die alone
I said they won’t let me die alone

Maybe I’m not supposed to be close
To all of the people I need the most, need the most

And I said how am I gonna get by
Without the help of the people I know
For better or worse we all come together
And they won’t let me die alone

I said now how am I gonna get by
When I’m afraid of the people I know
For better or worse we all come together
And they won’t let me die alone
I said they won’t let me die alone
I said they won’t let me die alone
I said they won’t let me die alone
