lyrics

I've met a lot of people through the years
That I have called my friends
Some come, some go
Some never come back again
Some help you up when you're low
Some lie, some cheat, some steal
And in the end, what's left
Is all that was ever real

(Chorus)
Old bonds are like tempered steel
They're strong, but turn to rust
And those that make you burn with love
Will leave your heart as dead as dust
Then ringin' funeral bells
Are all that draw you near
To those you hold
So close and dear

Spaces open up between friends
And they grow and grow and grow
And soon that growin' space
Is the only thing you know
The world was made to turn and that's all
And that's all it'll ever do
And those spaces still grow
Till they're all that's left of you

(Chorus)

I've met a lot of people through the years
That I have called my friends
Some come, some go
Some never come back again...
