My friend I've let you down
I'm writing to the sound
Of the pain you once possessed
So long ago
When time was everything
The echoes still resound
From a place where everything
Seemed possible

I've wasted so much time
On waiting for you to see how much
You threw away
When time meant everything
Your promise fell apart
And I stood here without a way
To recover

My friend you let me down
I'm writing to the sound
Of the pain I once possessed
So long ago
When trust was everything
The promise still resounds
From a place where everything
Seemed possible

    General CommentHe didn't appreciate his friend until his friend died. Now that he reflects on it and writes a song about it, he begins to realize how much he meant to him. He has been "wasting so much time" waiting for his friend to see how little he appreciated things, too. His friend promised something he couldn't keep because fate came along--now he's dead.

    Perhaps his friend took too long to complete his promise, and because he waited, and waited, and waited he died.
