"Dear Friend"

[Verse I]
When you wake up, is it cold out in July?
Can't you warm things up, no matter how you try?
I know it's windy, and it pushes to the wall
Don't let it knock you down, but brace when you must fall
We're both damn tired of our lonely, empty beds
Visions of fulfillment floating through our heads
Just don't forget, man, that I've always got your back
To keep you standing straight, and fill in all the cracks


[Pre-chorus]
Stuff sucks, but you can't be afraid
It doesn't matter whether or not you get laid
Just don't forget, to all the ones who walk on by
You can do better, you're a damn good, stand-up guy


[Chorus]
Don't let the tough times get'cha down
It comes and goes, it's not a pleasant sound
I know it hurts to be as lonely as we are
But you know that we won't have it for forever
We'll own this world, we will, together


[Verse II]
When you get tired, rest yourself inside your space
Don't be dissuaded by the never-ending chase
When you get chilly, wrap yourself in robes of gold
We'll laugh about this if and when we both are old
And if your wounds are frozen by the bitter wind
Tie on a bandage and keep walking on
Forget about your past regrets and past mistakes
That's where they are, and now they're all long gone


[Pre-chorus]
[Chorus]


[Bridge]
Now we grow tired and so hungry / and now are faces scar and wear
But we forget the golden rule, yeah / relationships are meant to tear
Weary, exhausted, we seek shelter / where they can't get us anymore
Open this book and view the pages / our tales of long forgotten lore


[Verse III]
When you wake up, is it cold out in July?
Can't you warm things up, no matter how you try?
I know it's windy, and it pushes to the wall
Don't let it knock you down, but brace when you must fall
And if your wounds are frozen by the bitter wind
Tie on a bandage and keep walking on
Forget about your past regrets and past mistakes
That's where they are, and now they're all long gone

Our troubles, friend, are all long gone
