Friend From Yesterday

AKA All These Years

What’s the matter now, angel
Is it that bad
I can’t control what I say
I don’t know how to act
Well, your mother would say
Well, here is your coffee
And you would be better
She said that her picture of you
Was against your pillows
Almost asleep
Smiling, she says she will never forget this photograph
No forgeries here
No lies for her
She never read my mail
She gave me my freedom

Are you still
Given to tears
Sorrow
Do you have something to cry away
Can I still
Make you stop crying
It worked for you mother
Sometimes you smiled
Sometimes you did not smile
But, my best friend
After all this time
You have run away again
How did you think it would be after so long
All these years

I guess I told you
I have to go away
I have to see my friend from yesterday
Can I borrow all the things we loved
We were forbidden to even trade
Ooh…
You would open the door
Maybe you’d remember me

I have to go away
I have to
See my friend from yesterday
I have to see her again
Can I borrow all the things we loved
That we were forbidden to ever trade
My best friend
After all this time
You have run away again
