YOU TOOK ME LIKE A DRIFTER TAKES A FRIEND

I'LL NEVER BE THAT HONEST AGAIN

WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE

YOUR WORLD COMES CRASHING DOWN AGAIN

 

FRIENDS ACCOMMODATE YOUR DARKER PHASE

THEN YOU FIND IT'S BEEN A HUNDRED DAYS

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOU REMEMBER FEELING SAFE

YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY ASSASSINS IN THIS PLACE

 

IF I APPEAR IN EVERY STORY THAT YOU TELL, THAT YOU TELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T WISH YOU WELL

WASN'T I THE ONE WHO CAUGHT YOU WHEN YOU FELL, WHEN YOU FELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T TREAT YOU WELL

WHEN I'M RINGING OUT YOUR NAME LIKE A BELL, LIKE A BELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T WISH YOU WELL

I WISH YOU WELL

 

YOU GET THAT LONELY FEELING AT THE DOOR

EVEN THOUGH YOU BEEN THIS PLACE BEFORE

'CAUSE THE TRUTH IS YOU WON'T CARE ANYMORE

TILL YOUR WORLD COMES CRASHING DOWN AGAIN

 

IF I APPEAR IN EVERY STORY THAT YOU TELL, THAT YOU TELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T WISH YOU WELL

WASN'T I THE ONE WHO CAUGHT YOU WHEN YOU FELL, WHEN YOU FELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T TREAT YOU WELL

WHEN I'M RINGING OUT YOUR NAME LIKE A BELL, LIKE A BELL

HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT I DON'T WISH YOU WELL

I WISH YOU WELL
