Story Behind the Song

This was inspired by a dream I had about my father and on the memories of friends who have passed in, thru and out of my life and who have also passed away. Still they live on inside me.

Broadjam Member Reviews

A very poignant remembrance of a tragic event. This has a 70s feel to it in the way the story is told.

    - Pete Papageorge

Great laid back feel, confident and well performed vocal with enveloping arrangement, good message in the lyrics wich sat perfectly at ease with the arrangement. I grew into this song, definitely one for the last glass from the bottle at midnight. Thanks , I enjoyed this.

    - John Evans

VERSE 1.
I saw you in a dream
Your were waiting for a train
You woke me up and you made me cry
The disguise you wore it did you well
For you almost past me by
But, we embraced and we held the time
We didn't have to try
We didn't have to try

CHORUS
'Cause old friends will stay old friends
Through distances and time
Old friends can mellow through the years
Like children and old wine

VERSE 2.
I lost you on the river
You were rowing with your gun
And when the bottom was filled with holes
Your rowing was all done
Now, I sleep on half the bed
I leave a place for you
And staring through the moonlight
I dream that I had rescued you
'Cause we embraced and we held the time
We didn't have to try
We didn't have to try

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
There's a hunger in an empty heart
Without love and understanding
But a friend can always fill you up
With the gift that is never ending
