Oh, all of your friends will let you down
There's just no avoiding it,
You might as well get used to it, it's ok, it's ok
You thought you knew them as well as the back of your hand
and your own hometown
But the back of their hand is all you're familiar with now

They don't know what you're going through,
They're too busy going through it too

Oh, your friends will let you down, have no regrets
and that smile on your lover's face,
will blow away and dissipate,
like smoke from your cigarettes
just like the money you made to invest in things to burn
you just keep walking crookedly
while the world takes another tilted turn

There are no guitars in the future, just computers.
And, the folks in your heart,
you won't see them, but you'll never be apart.

Oh, all of your friends will let you down
as long as all of your friends are still around.
