Keith is Good Radio Presents...


Temporary Thing
(For Mitch Hedberg)
Words & Music by Keith Good






Hey man, you used to make me laugh
Hey man, you used to make me laugh
I didn't know that your smile was a temporary thing

And if the escalator's broken, you can take the stairway - up to heaven
And if the escalator's broken, you can take the stairway - up to heaven
I didn't know that your smile was a temporary thing

Incense like cinnamon burning at your grave
The jokes remain behind, but man its not the same
Behind those purple shades you tempered with a tear
The laughs you freely gave those days when you were here

Hey man, then you made us cry
Hey man, why did you make us cry
I didn't know that your smile was a temporary thing

Hey man, in laughter you live on
Hey man, in laughter you live on
If only we knew that your smile was a temporary
If only we knew that your smile was a temporary
If only we knew that your smile was a temporary thing.
