A long time ago when we met you were lonely
I helped you forget life was solely only a wish to survive
And blood flows much thicker than wine
Friends who give up their time to be near you
Sing you a song just to cheer you
You will be rich in the end
Brother now you've got a friend

Life hurries by in the wink of an eye
Almost without meaning
Days speeding past like the wind hard to grasp
No wonder you're bleeding
Friendship is needed today
Or tomorrow is empty and we need each other please stay

For your only hope is together
We'll live in much calmer weather
And we'll make a beautiful blend
Brother now you've got a friend

Friends who give up their time to be near you
Sing you their songs just to cheer you
You will be rich in the end
Brother now you've got a friend
