[Best Friend] Let me take you back
to the time when we were chasing all the girls
Two maniacs
indulging in the pleasures of this world
So much to see, so much to live for
Questions to answer, places to go
So much to be, so much to care for
Deep down inside, I think you know you are free
Come back to me!

Look ahead and see
There are still so many borders we could cross
Just you and me
making up for all the time that we have lost
[Best Friend] So much to see [Me] He may be right
[Best Friend] so much to live for [Me] I've got to fight
[Best Friend] Questions to answer [Me] I will pull through
[Best Friend] places to go [Me] Take me with you
[Best Friend] So much to be [Me] I will not break
[Best Friend] so much to care for [Me] I must awake
[Best Friend] Deep down inside I think you know [Me] I think I know
[Best Friend] You are free [Me] I am free
[Best Friend] Come back to me!

[Best Friend] Aaaah, aaaah - Come back to me
[Me] There's no way out, my whole world is black!
[Best Friend] Aaaah, aaaah - Come back to me
[Me] I try to shout, something's holding me back!

    General CommentVery, very good song from a very, very good band. And of course, anyting involving James LaBrie or any member of DT for that matter is automatically very good.

    General CommentThis may be my favorite song on the album. I can really see someone singing this to a friend who is dead.

    Have any of you seen the video for it? Look it up on YouTube, it's really good.
