lyrics

On my list of things to do
An errand at the store
I chanced upon a long lost friend
As we rummaged through the past
Embellishing the truth
I spotted an alarming trend
Every time he asked about
People we hadn't seen in years
I was in doubt
We had lost touch with everyone
Where were the friends that filled our lives
When we were young?
I wonder...

Will there be anyone to say,
"Hey, do you remember?"
Will there be anyone
To phone me just to say hello
Will I feel like I belong
Like I'm a member?
Will there be anyone to ask me
Where did all of my friends go?

We used to laugh for hours
At stupid little things
It never seemed a waste of time
But responsibilities
For which I volunteered
Leave no room now to just unwind
This modern life
The American Dream
Obligates you to sell your soul
To a machine
I never asked to leave the fold
Maybe I'll see them all again
When I grow old
I wonder...

Old friends from work
Old friends from school
Transient friendships have become
The fated rule
Getting ahead can never wait
When the time comes to change your job
Or graduate.
