lyrics

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.

And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.

And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.

Tomorrow I will call on him
Last night I saw him walkin' in my dream,
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And the void between us grows and grows.

Around the corner, yet miles away,
A telegram says he perished today.
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
