Friends

I wrote something along these lines when I was ill. But sometimes, other people say something far better than you ever can. So, below, are copied the lyrics for the Travis song Friends.

I guess where I am now is this. Some times people you call your friends behave in a way that you would not expect them to. This can actually involve just doing nothing. But, of course, it raises questions. The time comes to realise, no matter how painful that realisation is, that they are not what you thought they were. And to call it a day and move on.

Who cheers you up
When you are down
Who brings you cups of coffee
Who picks you up
When you’re in town
Whatever makes you happy
And I’m glad you’re better now
But I’m sad you’re not around
Friends
Won’t ever desert you
Or turn against
Friends
Won’t love you and leave you
To mend the fence
Who wakes you up
When you’re late for work
Who makes the bed so lovely
Who found your sock
Who pressed your shirt
Whatever makes you love me
And I’m glad I’m better now
But I’m just sad you’re not around
Friends
Will never deceive you
Or turn against
Friends
Won’t love you and leave you
To mend the fence…
