Old friend, I hear you.
I know just how you feel.
I've been in your shoes before.
I've seen your worries,
and I can understand everything you going through.

And I believe in you.
Your time is coming.
Don't give up tonight.
There's a life ahead.
Your time is coming.
Don't let go tonight.

My friend, I've listened.
Things only can improve.
You have all the time in the world.
So keep on fighting, and never let them say there's anything that you can't do.

Cause I believe in you.
Your time is coming.
Don't give up tonight.
There's a life ahead.
Your time is coming.
Don't let go tonight.

I watched as you sat with a cigarette in your hand,
holding a drink in the other,
trying to drown all your pain…

And I believe in you.
Your time is coming.
Don't give up tonight.
There's a life ahead.
Your time is coming.
Don't let go tonight.
Old friend, you'll realize,
good things are worth the wait.
Enjoy the times that you have.
You'll see a new day,
when darkness fades again,
and the sun can rise to shine.

And I believe in you.
Your time is coming.
Don't give up tonight.
There's a life ahead.
Your time is coming.
Don't let go tonight.

    General CommentThis song was like how I used to be, and is how one of my bestfriends is right now. But, I have been there for him, like he has for me, and nothing is gonna change that. If you have someone that talks you out of suicide, you have a good friend. I think this song shows the importance of a friend in need and having someone there. I know we have all felt bad, and we are lucky if we have someone there.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely AWESOME. It so deep and meaningful. A good song for a good friend. My good friend is going through the same thing I went through before and I played this song for her, she almost started crying. She told me what a good guy I was, I'll always be there for a friend.

    General CommentThis song is beyond expression in words!! The mixture of the words and the beats and the piano and the vocals and the emotions behind it all.... makes me almost cry!!! I only wish I had found this song about a year ago... might have helped some friends along the way. :( I want this to be the seniors's song at graduation!! everyone should know about this song. But then the radios would just overplay it and kill it. so nevermind. lol

    General CommentI agree with everyone here. I am so in love with this song. The first time I listened to it, I started to cry. It's so easy to relate to. Almost everyone knows someone that has gone through something similar to this. TJT is the best band of all time! I'm sure their new album will rock!

    General Commenti love this song, so deep and meaningful i can't begin to explain. and call me crazy, but i think the guitar solo in the middle is very joe perryesque (aerosmith). great song by a great band. TJT rocks.
