The vicar with his battered suitcase
Stops the paper boy to make sure
That it's Sunday
No one else knows
Bicycles crash where the wind blows

Meanwhile on my window ledge
The silence sets my teeth on edge
People stare as though I'm jumping
Do they want to help or something

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
Friend that didn't last

Pirate radios, noisy adverts
Hurt my ears and spar my shaving
Life is hard and life is hurried
Life is sometimes not worth saving

Statement from the bank
Unopened letters that won't get replies
Tell them all I've lost a lover
And friend and that was some surprise

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
Friend that didn't last
The day she went away
Was not just any day

As I bounced my weary eyes
Down pages packed with cultural interest
I recall the windswept walks and midnight talks
And things that we loved best
I would not ask many favors
Just the smiles and funny ways
While smells of burning and songs of yearning
Muddle me the bitter taste still stays

She was once my friend
Friends aren't made too fast
She was once my friend
Friend that didn't last
The day she went away
Was not just any day

She was once my friend
My friend for life
And what a life believe me
She was once my friend
My prayer for life
And what a life believe me
She was once my friend
For life I'm crying
For a life slow dying
She was once my friend
My friend for life
And what a life
