Lyrics

A cracked voice that never changed
Just started using a different pattern
Laughs at the words I left
Although he doesn’t know just why
Two friends, too removed;
Ten-year olds get ten years older
He could finish my sentences but now he can’t discern my lies
(chorus)
Friends come, friends go
Some feelings slowly die
But I don’t know about the things he’s seen
With all the effort we spent chasing different dreams
He sounded nervous on my answering machine
I was out walking in the rain
I had to get my head together
Sometimes I fear I’m years away
From all the promises I made
I turned and headed in,
Though I couldn’t find my resolution
And I remembered we could always count
Upon the other putting everything right
I fear he hopes
That I will catch myself
But I don’t know about the things he’s seen
With all the effort we’ve spent chasing different dreams
He sounded nervous on my answering machine
Hey you, what’s up man?
I thought I’d just check in
I hoped you would be around now,
But I missed you again
Give a call, if you want to,
When you get a chance
I haven’t seen you in a while but,
You know how it gets, you know how it gets
Catchwords and running gags,
Don’t even seem to close the distance,
While I try my very best to make you laugh as we did then
And, when it’s time to go,
We’re both searching for the right conclusion
I’ll know you less and miss you more before I see you once again
Friends come, friends grow
Some feelings surely die
But I don’t know about the things he’s seen
With all the effort we’ve spent chasing different dreams
He sounded nervous on my answering machine
