I know you from way back when we used to be together,
I knew you before your hair was long.
Now it seems that now we're out, there's been a big change in the weather,
Had to sit down and write this song,
I had to sit down and write this song, mmmm.

Now when I read what you said it came as no surprise
I knew you'd spit it out someday.
Yes I knew that you'd do it and you know that you blew it,
Right then you gave it all away,
Ah, right then you gave it all away, mmmm.

Seems so long ago but I know you must remember
How you used to bare your soul to me.
All your dreams, all your fears, all your hopes and all your tears
Just might have slipped your memory,
Just might have slipped your memory, mmmm.

Well, now you're a hero, they line up to feed your ego,
They just love everything you do.
But I'm still in no hurry and I sure don't have to worry
When I look at what that's done to you,
Yeah, when I look at what that's done to you, mmmm.

If your head is in a mess why don't you give yourself a rest
Before you finally reach the end?
When your bubble is bust and you don't know who to trust,
I hope you recognise your friends,
I just hope you recognise your friends, mmmm.

We've all got to grow up, we've all got to own up,
We're all going to die someday.
Yes, we're all in the same boat, wearing the same coat,
Everybody's going one way,
I said everybody's going one way.
