lyrics

It has been a long, long time
100 years, or maybe more
Or maybe it’s been five or six
Im never good at keeping score
‘Cause time it goes oh, so slow,
But wait a minute, where’d it go
I swear that I just saw it here just
A couple seconds ago, oh, no

I never told you why I left
That night in the freezing cold
When all the roads were soaking wet
And I don’t know how I made it home
And I never told you it was me
That left that hole in the wall
Next to the bathroom sink
I hope it wasn’t hard to fill at all

I think you’re a lot like me,
Or maybe I’m a lot like you
Both do the best we can,
To speak our minds, and tell the truth
But mostly we just get it wrong
And wear our bruises as the proof, oh, no.

I know things can never be
The same way that they were before
But maybe come this Christmas Eve
I’ll come nocking at your door
And we’ll sing the songs again
And hold our lighted candles high
And when the night ends we won’t speak
But from the street, we’ll wave goodbye
Old friends
Old Friend
Old friend.

Oh, dear friend it’s not your fault
I left you when things got too hard
The wounds If felt from others hands
Still make me flinch when I touch yours

So give me time, I’ll give you mine, old friend.
