Song for a Friend…


the delusion of happiness

an illusion
we might never capture
my friend
we are a sea apart
we started this life
a day apart
on either side of a curtain
in a maternity ward
where do we go from here?
armed with our crutches
and fear

to where
will this whiskey road take us

 

are your dreams sweet
my life long friend?
what is the remedy
is your sleep sound
my life long friend?
what can i do for thee
help me, help you
help me, can we

 


misspent youth
and misguided desire
common ground
stinking, thinking, fire
in my belly
with eyes drugged wide
all too aware
we cannot hide
nor decide
so
where do we go from here?
perplexed by addiction
and fear

 

 

to where
will this whiskey road take us

are your dreams sweet
my life long friend?
what is the remedy
is your sleep sound
my life long friend?
what can i do for thee
help me, help you
help me, can we

 

help me
help you
help me
can we
where do we go from here?
to where
will this whiskey road take us
