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

An unfortunate accident in a canoe 
Dr. said, 'I'm sorry, not much I can do' 
The air was so still 
His eyes did not blink 
Oh, Adrian, come out and play

Little Mary Epperson liked him 
She vowed always to watch after him 
Still he did not move 
Dr. said it's no use 
Oh, Adrian, come out and play

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

And little Mary Apperson grew up lovely 
She still comes to visit him on Sundays 
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 around here
