Ode to Dylan


Ode to Dylan




Written by Mark Berry
Performed by Sharon Henderson


Sharon Henderson Where do imaginary friends go
When it’s time for them to die?
Do they go to imaginary heaven
Somewhere in the sky?

We’re here celebrating
The death of our imaginary friend
Even though he’s imaginary
It’s still sad when we reach the end

His days in the sun
The deeds that he’s done
All the things he’s damaged just for fun
While keeping the police on the run
He is now lost
And needs to stay that way
And we will not speak of him again
After we say goodbye today

Should we burn his driver’s license
And all forms of his ID?
Or would he have preferred
A formal burial at sea?

Either way it’s still ok
Less important is the ceremony
The more important thing for sure
Is that he can’t be traced back to you or me

Our imaginary friend
Committed the perfect crime
Because in the end
He isn’t doing time
His sole purpose in life
Was to hide the sordid truth
And like a surgeon’s knife
Cut the indiscretions from our youth

Where do imaginary friends go
When it’s time for them to die?
Do they go to imaginary heaven
Somewhere in the sky?

We’re here celebrating
The death of our imaginary friend
Even though he’s imaginary
It’s still sad when we reach the end
