lyrics

ABSENT FRIENDS

Your eyes are like a window to the ocean
Like the words to a sad, sad song I’ll never hear again
Shut my eyes and I can see you walk on water
And I shed another tear for the bonds we’ll never mend
Is it really any wonder why I’m lonely
Is it really any wonder why I’m talkin’ to myself
And did you ever stop to wonder why we ain’t gettin’ anywhere today

And I don’t want to be just another ghost that haunts your memory
And I think I found a better way to get you out my head
I just raise another glass and drink to absent friends

A whiskey and a shot of recollection
It’s the same damn song I’m hearing every day
And I can hear you laughing out loud like you were here right next to me
Then the mourning comes and steals it all away
Is it really any wonder I’m the last survivor
Is it really any wonder why I never sleep again
And did you ever stop to wonder why we ain’t gettin’ anywhere today

And I don’t want to be just another ghost that haunts your memory
And I think I found a better way to get you out my head
I just raise another glass and drink to absent friends
