When we were kids we came down here,
With stolen cigarettes and beer,
Cutting school and telling lies,
Skimming stones with endless tries,
One for sorrow two for joy,
Three's a girl and four's boy,
Six to best the all-time great,
We cheered so loud when you got eight.

Then we got older like kids do,
And I felt so much more for you,
But never found the words to say,
Although I practised every day,
I only have myself to blame,
I wonder if you felt the same?
I'll shout it now it can't be heard,
I loved you so much that it hurt.

You went to school and I signed up,
You moved away and we lost touch,
I never made your wedding day,
When I was serving far away,
I'd heard through friends you'd gotten ill,
I thought it's far to late but still,
Perhaps we could meet up at last,
Then Ellie told me you had passed.

I can't think of what else to do,
I skim a stone and think of you.
