about

written by Michael J Birthlemer

lyrics

every night when i close my eyes
all i see is my best friends' face
for an instant when his eyes met mine
and i witnessed raymonds rage
now thirteen words of testimony
is all it takes from me
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me

there's a dirt road a hundred years old
on the far side of town
hardly anybody goes there any more
thats where the spirits are found
one chance in a million that i'd be there that day and see
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me

raymond, raymond now what am i to do?
cuz i'm the only one who knows the truth
i love you like a brother but this secret is killing me
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me

hey, raymond i saw you and becky up that road
in the shade of a big willow tree
from a distance everything looked fine
but things weren't what they seemed
she's trying to tell you goodbye, you wouldn't let her go
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me

many years have come and gone
but that day lives on and on
now right is right and what's wrong is wrong
i've been silent far too long
always waitied for you raymond, to come and set me free
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me

raymond, raymond now what am i to do?
cuz i'm the only one who knows the truth
i love you like a brother but this secret is killing me
i know you know i saw you
like i know you saw me
