  • Friend of mine
    Friend of mine
    Told me about a girl that I left behind
    Said she was living on her own
    And I said she needed to go home

    So I tried to find
    Tried to find
    But she's elusive at the best of times
    Best of times
    I tried to get inside her head
    I tried to think of what I said

    Yeah, I was looking through the cold dark nights
    But there was nothing to find
    I asked a stranger if he knew your name
    Said you nearly lost your mind

    Looking for the high life
    'Cause it's over now
    Said that you could see it
    In her eyes
    Looking for the high life
    Wasn't working out
    But she'll be looking for the rest of her life
    But she'll be looking for the rest of her life

    There she goes
    There she goes
    It's too late but I should have told
    Should have told
    That she don't need to be like them
    To be loved in the end

    So she went off into the cold dark night
    But there was nothing find
    I should have held close for one last time
    So she wouldn't lose her mind

    Looking for the high life
    'Cause it's over now
    Said that you could see it
    In her eyes
    Looking for the high life
    Wasn't working out
    But she'll be looking for the rest of her life

    Looking for the high life
    'Cause it's over now
    Said that you could see it
    In her eyes
    Looking for the high life
    Wasn't working out
    But she'll be looking for the rest of her life
    Yeah, she'll be looking for the rest of her life
    Said she'll be looking for the rest of her life
