Chris Rea "Hello Friend" album: "On the beach" 1986.
" Hello friend, where you been so long? Time goes by, it all seems to slip away Just like a shadow at the end of the day
Hello friend, how are things for you these days? Some guy from way-back-when, he mentioned your name Did he ever get back to you? Ah, you know I told him to
Sometimes I turn and I swear I hear you call And I often wonder how we lost what we knew Seems it gone in the wind, washed away in the rain And the years go by and by
The bridges you burned, long sinced turned into ashes When there were no reasons, now the river runs dry Seems it's gone in the wind, washed away in the rain And the years go by and by Where you been so long..."
