Friends Forever

Sometimes you just catch lightning in a bottle.  Most of our songs have been that way.  The ones we’ve had to work at just usually don’t amount to much, if they don’t just get dropped.  This one wrote itself.  In February, we attended a get together (reunion) of old friends from my college days at the University of Oklahoma.  While I had stayed in touch with some, there were others that I hadn’t seen since 1979.  That time was so filled with love and joy!  It was like we had never been apart.  And it was so clear, even after all these years, why we were friends then, and remain so no, even though we’re separated by miles and life experiences.

This a song from our heart.  A song about life, and heartaches, and laughter.  It’s a song of love in its purest form.  We made a cell phone video in our living room.

 

An old green house

In an Oklahoma town

A home for the ages

That momma handed down

A gift for her family

By blood or by love

It didn’t really matter

When we gathered together as

 

Chorus

Friends forever

Friend who never

Forgot about the joy of just being together

Singing ‘bout life

About  heartache and laughter

And friends

Forever friends

 

Heaven she knows

And she gathers her own

Down different roads

But the seeds that are sown

Are A gift for the world or

A gift to each other

It didn’t really matter

When again we gathered together as

Repeat Chorus

Though the years disappear

In the rear view mirror

And memories may gently fade

But love just gets bigger when you give it away

To friends, Forever friends

 

Instrumental break

 

Heaven she knows

And she gathers her own

Down different roads

But the seeds are sown

A gift for the world or

A gift to each other

It didn’t really matter

When again we gathered together as

Friends Forever Friends
