Gonna See My Friend

Album: Backspacer (2009)
  • Do you want to hear something sad?
    We are but victims of desire
    I'm gonna shake this day
    I wanna shake this day before I retire

    I'm gonna see my friend
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away
    I'm sick of everything
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away

    Bueno sera, I won't be long before we all walk off the wire
    Well I'm gonna see my friend, I'm gonna see my friend for what I require
    Bueno sera I will come in quick
    Don't want my flame to get no higher

    I'm gonna see my friend
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away
    I'm sick of everything
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away
    I'm gonna see my friend
    Gonna see my friend, make it go away

    Want to leave it all.
    Want to give it up.
    Want to see it go once and for all
    Want to view it cho'
    Want a little bit home
    Want to be there

    Hard as a statue, black as a tattoo, ?
    Gonna take me an astral plane
    I'm gonna tunnel through denial
    But I'm gonna shake this day
    I wanna shake this day before I retire

    I'm gonna see my friend
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away
    I'm sick of everything
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go away
    I'm gonna see my friend
    I'm gonna see my friend, make it go awayWriter/s: EDDIE VEDDER
