about

This is my tribute to Gene Wilder

lyrics

You were a step ahead
All the things unsaid
written across your face

We didn't need the words
we still heard everything
you were trying to say

You were genius, you were magic
You were always a surprise
You were joyful, you were manic
You were all of us sometimes

You lit up the room
You were gone too soon
and we felt like we'd lost a friend

You made us laugh 'til we cried
broke our hearts all the while
right up until the end

You were genius, you were magic
You were always a surprise
You were joyful, you were manic
You were all of us sometimes

Always a smile behind your eyes
But you were never the fool
we were on your side

You were genius, you were magic
You were always a surprise
You were joyful, you were manic
You were all of us sometimes
You were all of us sometimes
