lyrics

I heard you might stop by today
For a drink before you go on your way
To meet a certain someone you don’t want to see
To meet a certain someone
Who certainly wouldn’t want to meet me

He was a friend of yours
Between the wars
Or aren’t you really sure
What it means to be you
Now that there’s nothing left to do
For men like us

No need to uncover unnerving thoughts
After all it took to get them in the ground
But if it’s all the same to you
I’d rather not pretend
That things are different this time around

Did I hear you say
He was a friend of yours
Between the wars
Or don’t you really know
What anything means
Now that the men of means

Have closed their doors
To unsettled scores
And shaking hands
With unsettling plans

You know I wish you the best
Your trip will surely not be in vain
But I hope there’s a jacket
In that suitcase of yours
Because it looks as though
It’s surely going to rain

He was a friend of yours
Between the wars
Or aren’t you really sure
What it means to be you
Now that there’s nothing left to do
For the rest of the day
Would you say
He was a friend of yours
Between the wars
Or don’t you really know
What anything means
Now that the men of means
Have gone away
