I get you & you get me
Were stuck in a state of tranquility
Our likes & dislikes seem to be the same
We are two sides of the exact same picture frame
If Im the dogs then your the men
After all were meant to be best friends
Im the stripes and your the stars
One nation under a friendship like ours
A needle and thread, you & i
Our lives sewn together like a stich in time
The ground and the sky
The seed and the tree
Together as one we simultaneously breathe
I went to inhale but never got the chance
Life isnt like a never ending trance
Its cruel and its harsh and its never fair
In real life the tortoise doesnt beat the hare
Life robs you in the darkness
And leaves you alone
It covers the hole where the light once shone
They cut you from my side
And the scars will never fade
All the memories in my mind have been replaced by a grave
A fading outline where there once stood a friend
Tell me you will stand there once again
Its not the end
But until then
So Long
To you my friend
