Down For Life Lyrics

2. Down For Life (3:23)
Track rating :  100 / 100      Votes :  1     
When I see my brother what I see is like no other
What we had forever lost
Can't deny our friendship
Feeling like it's time to end this bad relation ripped appart

When we're young and disaranged
We didn't know it any other way
Now we're grown, he's still the same
People see him suffering

I am not about to run away
Turn my back to him in his darkest hour
Give him will to fight, antagonize his thoughts
See him through his thoughest times, purify his weakened heart

All the friends, we feel the same
The way it was back in the day
The more we change, he stays the same
Will we ever see our friend again?

I... feel... that I can not protect my friend from himself

All I've got are these lessons learned in life
The lessons I've been taught, they still remain inside my thoughts
Even as we speak as troubled as it seems
He'll always be a friend of mine - that's the way it was and always will be

When we're young and disaranged
We didn't know it any other way
Now we're grown, he's still the same
People see him suffering

I... feel... that I can not protect my friend from himself

You... can't hear what I say
Never going away
Still friends down for life
Can you still fight.?.

All I've got are these lessons learned in life
The lessons I've been taught, they still remain inside my thoughts
Even as we speak as troubled as it seems
He'll always be a friend of mine - that's the way it was and always will be

Now in the end it plain to see
What kind of friend he has been for me
All along he could never see
Who he was and always will be?
