friend out in the madness lyrics – nanci griffith

i am not a child, though you’ll treat me as you’ve always seen me
you never saw the changes in a heart grown old and wise
hey, it’s good to see you smile, it’s been so long between the pages
… wheels out on the highway seem to laugh between my lines

do you still want to know?
where does the love go when it dies?
hey, i want you to know … love never dies …
it is sheltered here very safe inside and it’s left you
with a friend out in the madness

and you say you love me still …
how your soul does change and your heart still ponders …
how i could grow fonder … of a life out on my own
i still sing the harmony
i’ll have another wine and toast this madness
i’ll howl at your moon … on my way home alone

do you still want to know?
where does the love go when it dies?
hey, i want you to know … love never dies …
it is sheltered here very safe inside and it’s left you
with a friend out in the madness

do you still want to know?
where does the love go when it dies?
hey, i want you to know … love never dies …
it is sheltered here very safe inside and it’s left you
with a friend out in the madness
