Old Friend (free) 03:58
Can we go out for a drink? I've had too much time to myself And my thoughts are after me It's been such a slow incline Now my river's turned to ice And my feet feel planted though I was just passing by

about

Can we go out for a drink
I've had too much time to myself
My thoughts are after me
It's been such a slow incline
Now my river's turned to ice
and my feet fell planted
Though I was just passing by

The midwest pushes us to settle down
And that's alright by you
But you understand that I
Think I need to get out

Old friend
Will you tell me it's just the winter
Doing me in
Cause I've been
Down so long I can't see getting back up again
Old friend
Will you tell me it's just the distance getting to me
It'd do me good
To go back home and see my family

We'll traipse back through the years
And remember that we've seen
Much darker days than here
And how we were just kids
Holding on to a dream
Has it gone into the air
Or can you still see

I've been staying home
Just staring at my heart
The longer that I look
Well the more that I see dark

Old friend
Will you tell me it's just the winter
Doing me in
Cause I've been cold so long
I can't see getting back warm again
Old friend
Will you tell me that there's still good
Inside of me
You've seen me stumble, fall
And come back from the brink

Old friend
Will you tell me that we'll be beautiful again
