Always remember my friend,
The world will change again.
And you may have to come back
Through everywhere you've been.

When your life was low,
You had nowhere to go.
People turned their backs on you,
And everybody said that you were through.

I took you in, made you strong again
Put you back together.
Out of all the dreams you left along the way,
You left me shining.

Now you're doing well
From stories I hear tell.
You own the world again.
Everyone's your friend.

Although I never hear from you,
Still it's nice to know
You used to love me so,
When your life was low.

I took you in. I made you strong again.
I put you back together.
Out of all the dreams you left along the way,
You left me shining

Now you're doing well
From stories I hear tell.
You own the world again.
Everyone's your friend.

Although I never hear from you,
Still it's nice to know
You used to love me so,
You used to love me so,
When your life was low.

But always remember my friend,
The world will change again.
And you may have to come back
Through everywhere you've been.
The world will change again.

    Beautiful lyrics! We must not forget those who were there for us. Especially when we have risen from the lowest points in our lives and are doing very well. Don't burn the bridge that help cross you over, you may not be able to get back.

    Being left behind by someone... Reminding them that your past follows you... Reminding someone that you helped them through there toughest times and you helped them push through..

    I dont get if this song is sang from a place of pain of sublime nostolgia. The lyrics are graceful, much like what god would sing to many christians who left him after he built them. This is a love song...

    Awesome awesome reminder never forget who it is that keeps you in your right mind, who always has an ear to when we need to talk to someone, god never leaves us no matter what, we do and don't do, he's always there for us, all we have to do is just open our mouths and talk to him and he's right there.

    I first heard someone sing this at church, and the message hit me so hard. When we are at our lowest, that's when we tend to turn to god. We always look to god to pick us up, but when we're doing okay, or when things are going well sometimes we tend to be too busy to remember that god brought us to that point of happiness. :-)
