Unofficial studio version 2

Yeah once we were kids playing king of the mountain on West End
The world come charging up the hill, and we were women and men
Now there's so much that time, time and memory fade away
We got our own roads to ride and chances we've got to take
Yeah we stood side by side each one fighting for the other
And we said until we die, we will always be blood brothers

The impossibility of this world slowly grinds you away
Yeah making a fool's joke out of promises we make
And what once seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray
We lose ourselves in work to do, work to do and bills to pay
On through the houses of the dead past those fallen in their tracks
Always moving ahead and never looking back
It's a ride, ride, ride, there ain't much cover
When there's no one running by your side, my blood brother

Now my time is running out and I'm fading to black
Yeah and I've gone some place, and I can't get back
I don't know how now I feel, I don't know how I feel tonight
If I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or I gained sight
I don't even know why, I don't know why I made this call
Or if any of this matters anymore at all
The stars are shining bright like some mystery uncovered
I'll keep moving through the dark with you in my heart, my blood brother
