I lost all my friends
One day you're all together
Another day Years have gone by
I lost most of my friends
Some are gettin married
Others have kids
I lost all of my friends
There hasn't been a formal
Ceremony to admit to this
But really it's time to accept this

I tried to reach out to everyone
Yet that too faded away
Things just aren't the same
The nostalgia doesn't last long
Soon you find yourself losing touch

In a era in which people are always
on their phones, it's crazy how hard
it is for someone to just say 'Hi'
I don't blame anyone though
It's the nature of life

Okay maybe I do blame myself a little
Maybe I was slow to the fold
I let everyone pass me by
I let myself fall flat on my face
Then when I got up I found
no one was still in the game

They grew up and settled
Decided to fall in line
Gave up on their dreams
And I guess that I am
just a memory of the past

I must have been cryogenically frozen
So I stand here in the present
A relic of the past
Adjusting to the passage of time
Finally starting to grow up

Now the truth hits me
I lost all of my friends
I am finally okay with this

It's time to start over
I can't force people into my life
Now it's a choice and a commitment
Friendship isn't the goal
What I seek is community

One person at a time
Until it gets done
Mark my words
This time things
will work out
