"Old Friend" as written by and Nik Kershaw....
I want to be good, I want to be strong,
But I treated him bad, I've done him wrong.

I've taken his money, I'm given him hell
And he takes it all cause he knows me well.

We can say what we mean and mean what we say
We don't like to mess around,
But we're there to hold each other up
When we're falling down.

Just like an old friend
Putting me on my feet again,
Giving me back my pride then
Letting me go.
Just like an old friend
Putting me in my place again,
Giving me back my hope then
Letting me know that he's an old friend

I don't suffer no fools, I testify
But he must be one for being by my side.
I've broken his heart,
I've shaken his tree
But still he doesn't want anything from a fool like me.

We won't talk for a year or two
Maybe when we do we won't say much.
Even so we know that out of mind is never out of touch.

We're having a man-to-man
Don't want to get sentimental
But both of us understand
We'll never have to say goodbye, just see you later.

    My Interpretationits about someone who has been in your life for a long time, and some bad things where said, and years have gone by and they start talking again and have a better understanding of what else other was going through. No matter what they will always be friend.
