For a Friend

Kinney’s Song

“I’m tired” he said
“It’s been another lost day.
I think I’ll just go to bed”

He smiled at me
“Don’t worry I’ll be OK.
Some shut eye is all I need”

Chorus:
I’ve walked down that suffering road before
And there is darkness all along the route
But past the haints and the widow’s weeds
Are thorny bushes with the sweetest fruit

“It’s hard” he said
“When you outgrow all the dreams
That used to fill up your head”

I touched his hand
“It’s not as bad as it seems,
And you are such a good man”

Chorus:
I’ve walked down that suffering road before
And there is darkness all along the route
But past the haints and the widow’s weeds
Are thorny bushes with the sweetest fruit

Bridge:
So if you want to sleep
Sleep, my friend sleep
And in the morning
You will see
That it’s all right
Everything will be fine
The sun will still rise
And you’ll still be a friend of mine

Chorus:
I’ve walked down that suffering road before
But there’s a light at the end of the route
And past the haints and the widow’s weeds
Are thorny bushes with the sweetest fruit
