A Friend is a Friend... Pete Townshend... Song of the Moment




facebook





Song of the Moment


I was poking around my cd's the other day
and came upon this beauty.


I simply love this song and the entire album.
And I bet alot of people have never even
heard of it before. 



The Iron Man... The Musical by Pete Townshend 1989





When eyes meet in silence
A pact can be made
A life-long alliance
That won't be betrayed
Won't be betrayed


Be friendly... befriend me now
Be friendly


A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments... squabbles
Can't break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death... to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend


Be friendly... befriend me now
Be friendly


A promise is a promise
A handshake will seal it
No amount of discussion
Can ever repeal it
Commitment forever
To borrow or lend
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend


Be friendly... befriend me now
Be friendly


When eyes meet in silence
A pact can be made
A life-long alliance
That won't be betrayed
You need a mate
When facing the end
But what is the fate
Now facing my friend
Facing my friend
What faces my friend


Be friendly... befriend me now
Befriend me


A friend is a friend
Nothing can change that
Arguments... squabbles
Can't break the contract
That each of you makes
To the death... to the end
Deliver your future
Into the hands of your friend


Be friendly
Be friendly
Befriend me now
Be friendly
Befriend me now





How could you not be smiling
from ear to ear by the time this
magical song has reached it's end??

It's impossible!

Fuckin' Pete!

And even though I myself
have been a horrible friend
over these past few years...
doesn't matter...
because I know that we will ALL
be there for one another
if and when the shit
hits the fan...

I hope!  LoL

No no no... only kidding...
we will we will!
Right?!
Right?!



Pete Townshend & Roger Daltrey MSG May 22, 2004... friends 'til the end!
Tommy Mondello's ticket stub from that very show above... awesome!
That's Pete & Roger on stage at Madison Square Garden May 22, 2004.
Talk about a friendship with many many... many... ups... and downs...
and yet still... look at that!

I was at this very show, there's my ticket stub.
And I look at this photo...
and I see more than just 2 rock 'n roll hero's who have entertained
and inspired me pretty much my entire adult life in one way or another...
I see me...
and every one of the people who have been a part of my life along the way!

Very very close at times... not so close at other times...
but...
I know an embrace like that is waiting for us ALL
no matter how much time has gotten between us!

A friend is a friend
simple as that!
