Lyrics

Sweet Friend
words and music by Ben Evans

this old house
leans in the wind
the walls shake
and the roof bends
and one of these days
the rain is comin' in
like the wise men say
everything must end...end..
but may you live free
and may you breathe easy
and if you ever miss your mark
and if you ever fall apart
i'll be a gift from the earth
i will help you mend forever
sweet friend

i know sacrifice...
it's not in style
keep your life
in its own file
and i know part of this world
has already gone to hell
but what is pain
when you have no self?
no self...no self...
if you need a friend
and if you need...need a love
if that mysterious sadness comes
i will be your chimes of freedom
i will be a song in the wind
for you sweet friend
i will be a song in the wind
for you my sweet friend
i will be a song in the wind
for you my sweet friend
i will be a song in the wind
for you my sweet friend

i've heard of a light
brighter than i've ever seen
i've heard of a music...
it's too beautiful to sing
i'm awake all night
tryin' to break this dream
that taught me to hide
from all these beautiful things
beautiful things
beautiful..
but when the moon
lights the land
i pray that you...
you will understand..
if i could have
heaven
or take a fall
to lift you up
then like the sun
i would descend
for you my sweet friend
then like the sun
i would descend
for you my sweet friend
oh like the sun
i would come to an end for you
my sweet friend
oh like the sun
i would descend for you
my sweet friend
