lyrics

Friend Of Mine
Words and Music by Amber Snider ©2010, ASCAP Puddle Siren Publishing

We’re going ninety miles an hour
Down this highway of life
My fingers and my toes
are dangling in the wind

Now, we don’t know where we’re going
on this warm fine day
but neither one of us
wants to see it end

It’s high time for the summertime
Just let your soul unwind
In the meantime all we have is fine
You are a good friend of mine

We stop by the store of convenience
To pick up a pack of beer
We joke and we laugh all the way there
We saw a homeless man on the corner
Standing there with his paper cup
He said if you really wanna do me a favor
Just fill it up

We talk about government issues
Saying, hey I could do it a better way
But when voting time comes around
We’ve got nothing to say
We get jealous of movie stars
Saying no one should get paid that much
We’re obsessed over details of their lives
So out of touch

I wish I could close my eyes
And not see inequality
But when the scales are tipped in one direction
It’s hard to be free,
It’s hard to be fre-e- e-e

We talk about our trials and tribulations
Over sips of beer
You ask me if I think there’s a God
Somewhere out there

Well I guess the truth of the matter
Is that no one really knows for sure
But the glass is half full side of me
Likes to think so

It’s high time for the summertime
Just let your soul unwind
In the meantime all we have is fine
You are a good friend of mine

It’s high time for the summertime
Just let your soul unwind
In the meantime all we have is fine
You are a good friend of mine
