Are you there, dear old friend? I really miss you
`Cos I can`t feel your beats unless my hand`s on my chest

Guidance, please! Now don`t you shut down again
Your guidance ceased and I fell down, I still don`t stand

Dear old friend where have you gone?
Now I can`t feel at all what`s right or wrong

I made wrong moves, a dog rose in bloom later withered
Then the shock, that shakes me still, came almost fatal

Guidance, please! Now don`t you shut down
again
Your guidance ceased and I fell down, I still
don`t stand

Dear old friend where have you gone?
Now I can`t feel at all what`s right or wrong

Don`t you leave me here alone!

Dear old friend where have you gone?
Now I can`t feel at all what`s right or wrong

    General CommentI don't know what the friend metaphor is about, but this is the best song off the album hands down for me. To me it's like losing what you hold so dear and losing your way because of it, and trying to get it back.

    General CommentAgreed, great song. Could be about anything really, but it strikes me as if it's about some form of addiction.

    General CommentCould also be about a broken relationship, now that I read the lyrics again.
    "Are you there, dear old friend? I really miss you
    `Cos I can`t feel your beats unless my hand`s on my chest" - could be taken literally, he can't feel his heart anymore, since it's "broken"

    "Guidance, please! Now don`t you shut down again
    Your guidance ceased and I fell down, I still don`t stand"
    Possibly another metaphor with a physical heart and a "broken heart".

    Bah. I'm bad at interpreting songs, and I have trouble expressing myself too, so who knows... I sure don't. ;)

    General CommentIMO, he his reffering to himself as friend. He has changed drastically and feels that he is no longer the same person. It seems he has lost himself and is trying to get himself back on track.

    "I made wrong moves, a dog rose in bloom later withered
    Then the shock, that shakes me still, came almost fatal"

    But like exscape said it could be about anything, interpret it however you want.

    General Comment^ You're right. He's talking about his heart, as it used to guide him and provide his conscience, but no longer does, like he died on the inside. One of the few songs that I have come across that actually grew better once I knew what the actual subject matter was.
