below: Lyrics for Friends In Time


Friends In Time

You've always been here with me
And in your eyes, baby I can see
It's my reflection
Doubles of truth
And what it tells me is that I belong to you

And when we pass each other once again
Then I will recognise my true friend
And we are two friends lost in time
When your eyes are passing mine
I see we've been through so much in our lives
We are two friends so in love
The time we've been together, oh baby,
We're true friends in time.

My little sister, where did you go?
And what is in your face that shows?
A story baby deep and strong
But that's a secret
One that we kept for so long.

To say our love would be alive
But what other word doesn't die
We are two friends lost in time
When your eyes are passing mine
I feel we've been through so much in our lives.
We are two friends so in love
The time we've been together, oh darling,
We're true friends in time.

So come on...

We are two friends lost in time
When your eyes are passing mine
I feel we've been through so much in our lives.
We are two friends so in love
The times we've been together, oh darling,
We're true friends in time.

I'm gonna fly
Deep canyons beneath me
Darling, I'm flying to you
So you don't have to cry
I won't let it beat me
