My Friend

from by Smith & Jones



A song about friendship and family, and the emotional consequences of choices made.


My friend I know what it is that hurts you
What it is that troubles you
My friend I know what it is that pains you
What it is that calls sorrow home

My friend you say you’re doin just fine
You’ve been keepin busy, trynna lose the time
But you can see the fire, feel the flames
From the ashes
Life comes again
From the ashes

You’re just trynna live your life on the square
You painted over the cracks again
But oh those walls are lookin bare
Oh hammer and nail won’t fix it
When it comes crumbling down
I wanna see you light a fire
Drag this house to the ground
I wanna see you light a fire
Oh drag it to the ground

I know you feel like you lost your way
But you’re the best in me, I aint afraid to say it
May he give you life, happiness
May he hold a light
For you in the darkness
May he hold a light
