Old Friends

It's about how fickle friendships can be, how fate can make two people who were once inseparable, fade away from each other

It's been a while now

My mind flickers to images of times better than this

Dumped at the first instance of happiness

Am I really just a prop on a theater stage

Am I only a friend, when I'm all the rage

They say hindsight's a wonderful thing

But knowledge and experience always come too late

 

Old friends, dear friends

I've known them for years now

Memories shared, when the wind is fair

Now it seems I no longer belong there

 

I've been spending too much time for others

Their happiness at the expense of my own

Those who like me, those who love me

There's no such thing as a second chance

There's only the cold truth of being alone

 

Time is short, but my hours stretch out into nothing

But who am I to complain

Even if I'm crumbling because of the pain

These times have seen us change

Time and love have twisted our fates

 

Old friends, dear friends

I've known them for years now

Memories shared, when the wind is fair

Now it seems I'm no longer there

 

Family is a pale ghost of what it was

Heart beats but a faint shade of red

Couldn't find the cure or the cause

Couldn't even find the time to hide

Or to keep my misery from the door

 

Old friends, dear friends

I've known them for years now

But I hold my breath in my horror

As I find that all of my time has ran out 

The End
