Deacon Blue – My Friend Tonight lyrics

The only one with a party dress
That could fall in blue waves upon the floor
And step the country waltz that I'd seen her dance
On her front lawn of her house all alone

She lies still beside me with the t.v. on
I see her mummy look so sad
Turn down the volume and watch worried women weep
And touch the ring on her frozen hand

But she's my friend tonight
She's my friend tonight

Now I watch the flames leap up into the sky
From a fire that swallows all her clothes
She's stretched across a floor that's never been her home
I'll take her with me when i go

But she's my friend tonight
She's my friend tonight

We're young again
Oh you never missed me this way...

But she's my friend tonight
She's my friend tonight
