Old Friends

I went to heaven just so I could see my old friend

He said it's been a long time "How've you been?"

So I told him about those days I spent in Hell

For my mistakes and wrong turns and those times I fell

He said "life's about choices it does no good not to feel

If you only live in Heaven you'll never know what's real"

 

So I went up to that church and grabbed myself a knee

wanted faith to be waiting at the bottom for me

But I know I can not stay, and I know I can not pray

It was time, it was time, it was time

Time to move along, time to move along

 

I went to Hell just so I could see my old friend

He said it's been a long time "Where've you been?"

So I told him about those days I spent in Heaven

For my good deeds and right turns and those times I helped

He said "life's about choices it does no good not to feel

If you only live in Hell you'll know, you'll know what's real"

 

So I went down to that bar and grabbed myself a round

Wanted truth to be waiting at the bottom to be found

But I know I can not stay, I know I walked away

It was time, it was time, it was time

Time to move along, time to move along

 

I came back home just so I could see where I've been

And how those mistakes and wrong turns have made me who I am 

Now I know life's about choices it does no good not to feel

If I only lived in Heaven I'd never know what's real

 

So I went up to that stage and grabbed myself a song

Wanting all my old friends to gather round and sing along

Because I know I can not stay we all must go our way

When it's time, when it's time, when it's time

Time to move along, time to move along
