"Thoughts For A Friend" lyrics - MATTHEWS' SOUTHERN COMFORT

"Thoughts For A Friend"

Each day he lived he just grew younger
And where he looked he'd never been
The nights were more an endless wonder
Each day the most he'd ever seen

His mild approach was more a way of life
His way of living just a ball
And scarcely did he wonder was he safe
It never bothered him at all

At times appreciation deafened him
Those nights he'd smile and not believe
And when the lights were going up on him
Each step he couldn't quite conceive

And each day I wander down along the street
Alone with thoughts about a friend
So helpless never looking up to see
Each life we never can defend
