I lived a life of illusion and you had your kicks
So what, there's nothing left to do
And you and your obsessions and your crucifix
As if what I thought mattered much to you

And you were always my friend from Childhood's End
It was forever and ever
Did you understand, it's Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over

Sunday mornin' in the New York Times
I read you died last night
It said, you were smilin' when you blew your mind
And the note you left behind said

You were always my friend from Childhood's End
Seems like forever and ever
Yeah, you won't have to pretend, it's near the end
You won't ever be a rock and roller

Yeah, you were always my friend from Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over

You were just like me
I was just like you
For eternity I'll think of you

Yeah, you were always my friend from Childhood's End
It was forever and ever
Did you understand, it's Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over

Yeah, you were always my friend from Childhood's End
It was forever and ever
Did you understand, it's Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over

Yeah, you were always my friend from Childhood's End
It was forever and ever
Did you understand, it's Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over

Yeah, you were always my friend from Childhood's End
It was forever and ever
Did you understand, it's Childhood's End
But never, the dream is over
