lyrics

Well, it’s quiet at home this morning,
And I miss my old friend today.
It was so rarely quiet back then.
You were not one for silence.

All those nights when I just couldn’t sleep,
To the kitchen I’d creep;
And I’d find you writing songs on gas bills -
Listening to your radio.

When we walked you’d always lead the way.
When we drank you’d lag behind.
And you always said I was the strong one,
But I don’t think I am.

Many a cold winter’s night I’d come home
With empty pockets, and a bad cold too;
And with a smile and a laugh, I’d find you
Playing dead under the table.

Years before when we were younger,
You pulled me through when I was so low.
It seemed to me you make people happy.
(Everyone but yourself.)

When we walked you’d always lead the way.
When we drank you’d fall behind.
And you always said I was the strong one,
But I don’t think I am.

Well, it’s quiet at home this morning,
And I miss my old friend today.
It was so rarely quiet back then.
You were not one for silence.

You always try to get the best out of life:
Always aware that our time is brief.
Me, I’m just trying to hide forever.
I thing you’ve got it right.

When we walked you’d always lead the way.
When we drank you’d lag behind.
And you always said I was the strong one,
But I don’t think I am.
