lyrics

Oh I remember the day that we last spoke
You didn't owe me a thing but you gave me hope
I always thought we'd have time to make amends
I never meant to lose touch with you my friend

You talked of stories and songs that we once shared
You missed the food on our block and the Grand Street Fair
Then you confessed you moved home 'cause you knew you were sick
You said the struggle was Hell but you would not quit

And you said,
"Don't worry things will be alright
Don't worry things will be alright"

You said whenever the pain would slam you down
You'd become like a tree with your roots in the ground
And though you hardly could move you could rest and grow
And you could sway with however the wind would blow

And then you'd say,
"Don't worry things will be alright
Don't worry things will be alright
Don't worry things will be alright
Don't worry things will be alright"

And despite all outward evidence
You were tirelessly confident
That no matter how your day began
And no matter how your day would end
Tomorrow it would all make sense
Yeah tomorrow it would all make sense
And tomorrow would be damn well worth the fight

Oh I remember the day that we last spoke
You didn't owe me a thing but you gave me hope
You know I never made time to make amends
I never said goodbye to you my friend
