I feel those days without end
When we used to be friends
Those summer days were spent
In search of hope and happiness

We used to while away our days
In a beautiful haze
I guess I knew one day
That you'd be moving long away

You said go back to your dream
Back to your wilderness
Go back along the walk
Maybe you'll find some happiness

I wept a thousand tears for you
For my love that came true
And soon I realized
I'd always dreamt it'd come to this

And though that time passes by
And that our lives have changed
But our love was special
Our love was strange

And though my heart broke
In time it did mend
Except when I think about the time
That we used to be friends

    I think it means that there was once a special friendship that also had some romance in it and that for whatever reason the two people involved werent allowed to let it grow into more...but that even so it's a love and friendship that will last a lifetime.
