Big T

I met Tom half our lives ago
And soon he was a half of me
The best friend I could ever know
And I can never set him free
  To watch a film or play a game
  He was the friend I had to see
  We shared the fun (and yes, the blame)
  And I can never set him free
He was alive and now is dead
But that is not the end for me
I’ll carry Tom inside my head
And I can never set him free
  I met Tom half our lives ago
  And I can never set him free
