This one work ? (might change a word or two.. dug it out of another old folder) Brutal feedback graciously accepted.

Old Friend (I'll Have To Run)

it’s funny how it’s good
to have you as a friend
even though you’re like a dog
I never should have fed
and I’ve accepted the notion
you’ll always be around
wonderin how I’ve been
as that first one goes down

(chorus)
here we go
again
two old friends
I’ll play the part
I always do
lay all my fears
and hurt on you
when you start feelin empty
I’ll be about done
it’ll be closing time anyway
then I’ll have to run
.....aint I always had to run

(second verse )
I always was the one
who never took the blame
any time one was leavin
denial named the game
and through all the years you’ve listened
never gave your point of view
there’s times I’ve sat and wondered
who’s really using who

(chorus)
here we go
again
two old friends
I’ll play the part
I always do
lay all my fears
and hurt on you
when you start feelin empty
I’ll be about done
it’ll be closing time anyway
then I’ll have to run
.....aint I always had to run

(bridge)
what’s that they say about all bottled up
I’ve got me enough to fill two
so I’ll pour it out as I pour you in
let it flow and give me some room

(chorus)
here we go
again
two old friends
I’ll play the part
I always do
lay all my fears
and hurt on you
when you start feelin empty
I’ll be about done
it’ll be closing time anyway
then I’ll have to run
.....aint I always had to run

i think it has potential but some of the wordplay confuses me.

for example this line completely went over my head - wonderin how I’ve been as that first one goes down

i have no idea what that means.


and the bridge - so I’ll pour it out as I pour you in / let it flow and give me some room (lost me again)

got a melody?

I've got 3 arrangements so far.

I'll hold off and see if anyone knows what the song lyric is about :)

Hint, who is this guy's friend ?
