AND AS FOR YOU

Pukka Music 1999

First released on: Here I Stand, 1999

and as for you,
where were you when I needed you?
you just look at me like you see 
but you can't recall
I could name the day I heard you say "Remember me 
I'll be there for you, I swear, if you ever fall"

time goes out of mind
who gets left behind? 
should I call you brother now?

these razor suits that you wear 
your calculated air 
the worried smile of a man reinvented
no more words now for you like forever 
you said forever
but that was never what you'd want

time goes out of mind 
who gets left behind?
should I call you brother now?

time goes out of mind
was I running blind? 
should I call you brother now?

and when I fell, the way we do 
I reached for hands to pull me through 
I had a friend on whom I thought 
I could depend  but where were you?

time goes out of mind 
who gets left behind? 
brother, should I call you brother now?

time goes out of mind
