It takes Time

lyrics

Did we meet that last year at school
Up at Julian's shooting pool
or was it later at the Blue Rose Bar
I really can't remember back that far

But I recall a lot since that day
The songs we sang and the jokes we played
The debts we owed and the dues we paid
the girls we loved and let slip away

I'll find an amigo
to pick me up when I'm feeling low
I'll find a kindred soul
with a heart of gold
Through the years I've lost a few
They don't just appear out of the blue
it takes time to make an old friend like you

The night stayed up playing our guitars
'till the dawn drowned out the stars
And when we couldn’t play anymore
we fell asleep on the kitchen floor

There were days we screamed and yelled
And I told you to go to hell
we ended up there side by side
laughing all the way through the fire

I'll find an amigo
to pick me up when I'm feeling low
I'll find a kindred soul
with a heart of gold
Through the years I've lost a few
They don't just appear out of the blue
it takes time to make an old friend like you

We messed up, made mistakes and then
Turned around and made them all again
the past has no rosy glow
and some scars are not so old

In the end our days are few
We're all just passing through
On the way to who knows where
As long as we're together, I don't care

I'll find an amigo
to pick me up when I'm feeling low
I'll find a kindred soul
with a heart of gold
Through the years I've lost a few
They don't just appear out of the blue
it takes time to make an old friend like you
