Makin It Real

Skip Friel


You heard about our friend

Suddenly he is gone

How could his light go out?

It was burning strong


He worked there on the stage

I caught them when he played

Out there in the light

You could hear him say


Play how you feel

Keep making it real

Just give us a song

This moment is almost gone


I won’t ask how you feel

I know it must be hard

When a friend is lost

Who can know your heart  


He always made them see

They were shooting stars

We liked to hear him say

Play just what you are
