Buddies

From the album Uniforms Buy Now

 

 

As my lifeline runs through my fingers

And it snags on knots time to time

Just talkin’ to you, helps them slip through

A buddy like you’s hard to find.

 

Cho: Buddies like you never need to be told

What buddies like me need to say

Life has a flare when you’re standing there

And it’s hollow when you’re away.

 

Remember that night I was ready to die?

We shared your last Cuban cigar

I laid down in the highway, ... but no one drove by,

So you went to borrow a car!

Chorus

 

I helped you etch all them lines in your face

And you helped me grow these grey hairs

If I make you sore, ... hell! What’re friends for?!

We’re buddies ‘cause I know you care!

 

Brdg: I like you better than corn-on-the-cob

More than the air that I breathe

You’re a mug of cold beer,

You’re a laugh, you’re a tear,

Buddy, you’re a god-damned relief!!

 

Cho: Buddies like you never need to be told

What buddies like me need to say

Life has a flare, when you’re standing there

And it’s hollow and empty, ... when you’re away.
