    Lyrics

    Adrian came home again last summer
    Things just haven't been the same 'round here
    And people talk
    And people stare
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    An unfortunate accident in a canoe
    Doctor said, "I'm sorry, not much I can do"
    And the air was so still
    And his eyes, they did not blink
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    Little Mary Epperson liked him
    And she vowed always to watch after him
    But he still did not move
    And the doctor said, "It's no use"
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    She sat by his side, and watched the years fly by
    He looked so fragile, he looked so small
    And she wondered why he was still alive at all

    Everyone in town had that "I'm so sorry" look
    They talked in a whispered hush, said
    "I'd turn the machines off"
    But still she sat by his side
    She said, "Life, he won't be denied"
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    Yellow flowers decorate his bedroom
    Sign above his door says "Welcome Home"
    But he just sits and stares
    He's awake but still not there
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    She sat by his side, and watched the years fly by
    He looked so fragile, he looked so small
    And she wondered why he was still alive at all

    And little Mary Epperson grew up lovely
    And she still comes to visit him on Sunday
    He's like an unused toy
    He's got big hands but the mind of a little boy
    Oh, Adrian come out and play

    Adrian came home again last summer
    Things just haven't been the same 'round here
