I gotta do it tonight, we don't belong
Now it's been much too long
Here comes the feeling again
I'm furious and you're so serious

I'm on the wrong side of the town
And I'm tired and without a crown
Sometimes you get stronger from the pain

So where were you?
Now where are things
That I would say to make you smile?
Where were you?

Where were you?
Now where are things
That we would do to stay alive?
My friend

I made a promise to you but can't be true
I failed in every way
I always wanted to leave, I didn't believe
That I could be serious

Always a lot and never little for sure
You need a key to open up that door
Sometimes I am lucky if I'll survive

So where were you?
Now where are things
That I would say to make you smile?
Where were you?

Where were you?
Now where are things
That we would do to stay alive?
My friend, my friend

So where were you?
Things that I would say to make you smile
Where were you?

Where were you?
Now where are things
That we would do to stay alive?
My friend, my friend, my friend, my friend
