A Friend for Life

Album: Another Country (2015)
  • Through a smoke-filled glass on a desperate night
    When the sole of my shoe lets in rain
    When the heart's tired of running and the milk's gone sour
    Will your feelings still be the same?

    When the match won't light so the flames don't tremble
    And the years are condemning us, too
    I'll need a soulmate to hold me and a friend for life
    And I'm hoping it might be you

    When I think of life as a chance not taken
    Or as a compromise tinged with regret
    When the kids leave for breeding and the TV's king
    Will you tell me we're not done yet?

    Will you think of me as a distant island
    Or will you come with me to the moon?
    I'll need a soulmate to hold me and a friend for life
    And I'm hoping it might be you

    Give me asylum and I'll keep the faith
    Keep me in coffee and so safe
    And I'll feed your cats and I'll paint walls
    And I'll be your one-night stand

    Will you come with me in the certain knowledge
    That the catch is there's no catch at all?
    I'll need a soulmate to hold me and a friend for life
    And I'm hoping it might be you
    Yes, I'm certain it must be you
