  • The time has come
    For us to see
    If you'll take me once again
    But darlin' I'll be back
    I'll be reborn
    I know I'll always want to be your friend

    This life was like climbing
    So glad I put the time in
    I've got so used to loving you
    In this life, you sure blessed me
    Why would I want to get free?
    I've been so happy loving you

    I've lived too long
    Lost so much time
    I must accept I might be finally dying, yeah
    What will survive
    Is my consciousness
    (It's what I'd guess)
    And when I'm alive again you'll be my happiness
    (Yes, yes, yes)

    Next life I will be climbing again
    So glad I put the time in, and then
    I'll remember how I once loved only you
    In this life, you sure blessed me
    I would want that again, you see
    To be happy again by loving you

    I was young, rigged guitar
    Long hair, big car
    No more "big star"
    Just be happy and go far
    Not too far
    Love my town, love the boys
    Down the Goldhawk Bar
    Parkas and boxing boots
    Faces were doing toots
    We had no cash for that
    Just had some hash for that
    Lost my virginity
    Kate took the piss out of me
    Didn't care much who doubted me
    Then I found dignity with you

    This life was like climbing
    I'm so glad I put the time in
    I got so used to loving you
    In this life, you sure blessed me
    Why would I want to get free?
    I've been so happy loving you

    Do you believe in life after this?
    What science decries as only a myth
    We hang on to dreams like pagans
    From some ancient days
    Then we get on and live out our life
    Till we're looking right into the light
    We'll only know for sure
    When we're lost in the haze

    The time has come
    For us to see
    If you'll take me once again
    But darling, I'll be back
    I'll be reborn
    And I know I'll always want to be your friend
    I'll always want to be your friend
