Once I had a friend that I could count on
So I thought
Well so it seemed
But times of need are not enough
To prove your friendship to me now
Once I saw a face that I believed in
But a mask was all there was
So who wears the masks and who wears the faces
Well I guess, I'll never know

But as I stand here alone in a room full of people
With nothin' to say
Beer on their minds, and smoke in the air
Call them friends but they just don't care

Friend for life
Such shallow words for broken minds
Show me a friend for life
'Cause I'll be waitin' for that day to arrive
When I'll feel alive
I'll be waitin' for that day

Once I found a love I had to know
Now we might know each other just too well
'Cause when we're together we just can't get enough
Or is it we just can't get what we want
Once I saw a dream, I had to chase it
Dreams quickly turn to reality
Who's at fault in this game of yours and mine
Well I guess, I'll never know

But as I sit here alone
Think of the girl who came softly inside me
The look in her eyes, the smell of her hair
Call her my own but is she really there?

Love for life
Such noble words for noble minds
Show me a love for life
'Cause I'll be waitin' for that day to arrive
When I'll feel alive
I'll be waitin' for that day

Friend for life
Such shallow words for broken minds
Show me a friend for life
'Cause I'll be waitin' for that day to arrive
When I'll feel alive
I'll be waitin' for that day

Once I had a friend that I could count
Times of need are not enough
Once I found a love I had to know
Now we might know each other just too well
Once I saw a dream I had to chase
Dreams quickly turn to reality
Now let me close my eyes
Because I don't want to see anything anymore
