Born for a Friend

In the time it takes for me to say where’d it all go
The friends I made started feeling kinda’ low
They were drive-in kings riding in the trunk of love
Crossing the border river proving what we were made of
Money girls behind glass top walls, making our parents wait

We grew up but never saw the hands move
Who paid attention to time, except the sun
We watched it rise and set, who can forget
We were royalty without robe or crown

You remember me I remember you
Born to begin, born to the end
Born to be a friend

All my leaves waving, not on the ground lying
I can’t believe how much I think of dying
Being alive isn’t just for me, that’s a father’s destiny
A scar knows too much, she didn’t want to be a fantasy
The loves of my youth, was it really love that could not wait?

She changed her mind like a Texas storm
As sudden as a picture falling from the wall
I tried not to put too much weight on the nail
I made it too easy for her to take it down

You remember me I remember you
Born to begin, born to end
Born to lose a friend

Now you need God’s grace, a life for him to save
Your family surrounds you, fearful and afraid
What held us together as boys, bonds us as men
There is now a time to love and a time to mend
It’s not time for you to go, we will ask God to wait

The lights in the distance are the memories of time
The landscape is not a dream but instead life itself
We speak now in ways that only wish to scream
Do you want salvation or one more night on the town?

You remember me I remember you
Born to begin, born to never end
Born for a friend
