lyrics

Did that river call you in
Did you think that we could swim
Were you just playing a trick on Johnny
Cause he did just what you asked
And that river took him fast
And you were gone before they found his body

Some years later on
I heard your name around
And I set my mind to find you
I've wondered for years
If your nights are full of tears
Or if you could put that day behind you

So won't you stay another day
We'll turn this world around
And we'll live like yesterday
Before life brings us down

In front of me you stand
My dear and oldest friend
You hardly recognize me

And I ask you how you've been
But you're not remembering
Our friendship or even Johnny

You're quick to strike a deal
And suddenly I feel
Your return is never coming
My old friend has gone away
My old friend has gone away

So won't you stay another day
We'll turn this world around
And we'll live like yesterday
Before life brings us down

Now we're no longer children
And you find yourself in prison
This time there's nowhere to run to
And those boyhood dreams we've started
Have finally departed
But I just can't let them go
Lord help me let them go

So won't you stay another day
We'll turn this world around
And we'll live like yesterday
Before life brings us down

And bad things come
To those who wait
With expectations
Way too great
This world has turned without me
This world has turned around
