The Wedding Present -
"You Should Always Keep In Touch With Your Friends"

[ from the album "Tommy" (1988) ]

Lyrics

After school a friendship walking home
We fled across the fields until we were alone
To a bridge that stood close by the sea
The day that we spent there is ours eternally

I don't have to tell you
I'm sure you understand
The first who lay beside me
Made me what I am
Oh she made me what I am (ohh)

A smile in these ungrateful times
Makes all that you left me seem more worthwhile
But no I couldn't really dare
To show how much I miss you - isn't that unfair?

I don't have to tell you
I'm sure you understand
The first who lay beside me
Made me what I am
Oh you made me what I am
And no matter how it ends
You should always keep in touch with your friends (ohh)
