old friend lyrics – chris de burgh

old friend, so you’re in trouble again, you ask me today,
to try and find a little time, and maybe buy a gl*ss of wine,
old friend, i’m coming through…

old friend, yes i remember you, always a smile on your face,
oh memory from years before, an old man and a little boy,
old friend, i remember you…

you used to take me fishing down by the wishing well,
one day you threw a wish in, and we listened while it fell,
and you made a wish…

“when the years are heavy, and my heart is growing cold,
well i wish when the evening comes that there’ll always
be… some old friend who’ll miss me too…”

well i do, so old friend i’m coming through…
yes, for you i’ll always find the time, we will have a bottle
of wine, old friend, i’m here by your side, oh, to the very end,
old friend… i miss you too… my dear old friend…
old friend… old friend…
