(Listener Supported version)

Tables turned again
And you my friend
You and I face each other
Oh time and time out
I know it's sometimes hard
But knowing just oh
That we will get along
Til we're old and gray
And doubled up
We're doubled up, we'll sit
And think of times were hard
And laugh of times when we thought
All it would end, it was all over
Then again
And know that I'm yours less rain
And to leave you out, I'll die
Oh my friend
It will be you until the end with me
Always
Always...

    General Commentit doesn't get much more beautiful than this...

    plus, i love how on the listener supported version some guy's screaming "thank you, dave!" because don't you just want to thank him after every song at his concerts?

    General Commentmy favorite thing about this song is that it is never the same. you can always recognize it was #40 but the lyrics always different. also, this song was origionally called ALWAYS.

    General Commenti think that this song is about two friends who are of the opposite sex who know eachother so well that they are best friends
    the narrator wants them to be more than friends - but one thing he is sure of is that they will always be there for eachother in the end - friends or more than friends
