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
She vowed always to watch after him
But still he 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 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
