Remember when we were young?
We sure knew how to have fun.
We’d skate away into the dark never asking about the time.
We used to play everyday thinking everything was okay.
We’d do our best to clean our rooms and make our beds before the day was through.
We’d sit in a cardboard car hoping that it would take us far.
Pretend to sail the seas so we could know what it’s like to be a pirate, and know just where to find it.
The treasures the future would hold. The futures that we didn’t know.
As days went by things began to change.
But we still found the best on a rainy day.
We’d stay up late and break the rules and laugh at those who all would go to school.
Though we tried and tried and tried to do what’s right, life showed up and clouded our minds.
We felt things we never knew and closed our eyes and hoped it wasn’t true.
And we’d drive across the town just for giggles.
We would look out at that sea hoping to know how to get back to those days that were relaxed and we’d get back in the car and go home.
Trying to make that house we call home, home.
And when I see the past, and when I’m looking back I know
I made it through because I had you by my side.
I know it’s time we took our own paths now.
But, please know I’m this way because we met.
I know things always change, but I also know that we will stay the same.
If I were to repay you, i’d get a lasso and capture you the moon.
But, that would not suffice because you have saved my life too many times.
But I’d drive across the country just to see you
I’d sail across that sea to hold your hand, and whenever you’re in need
please know that I will be in reach.
I’ll never stop being your friend, I’ll never stop being your friend.
