Imaginary Friend – Robert Hincks

One early morning in 2009 I had a dream in which I was playing and singing the chorus to this song. I even got to see what chords my fingers were playing on guitar. After getting some coffee in me I started playing it and singing gibberish until verses began take form.

As for the lyrics, when I was a five year old kid named Bobby I had an imaginary friend named Booggedy-woggedy. He guarded my room against intrusions from my little sister Birch and hung out while I rocked and sang in bed. The song starts off with that theme and drifts through some more current images to a future moment of transition into spirit. In the last bridge, if you listen carefully, you may be able to hear a recording of my 82yo mother calling me. This song is for you, my imaginary friend – the only audience I ever have.

Imaginary Friend

In the mystery garden of my first bedroom
I pitch a tent of blankets beneath a gathering gloom
You come to me. No one can see…..

My imaginary friend, here we are again.
When I rock and sing in bed, you are my
Imaginary friend. No one understands -
You’re the only audience I ever have.

In the virgin forest all around the bar,
An accidental tourist, you wander where you are.
Come to me. Tonight you’ll be…..

My imaginary friend, here we are again.
While I’m rockin’ and singin’, you are my
Imaginary friend. No one understands -
You’re the only audience I ever have.

(instrumental)

Please, come to me.
Play with me, my imaginary friend.
When the game is over and father time has won,
I hear you and my mother calling Bobby home.
“Come to me. No one can see.”

My imaginary friend, here we are again.
We’re still rockin’ and singin’, me and my
Imaginary friend. No one understands –
You’re the only audience, my only audience,
You’re the only audience I ever have.
