-What does the narrator say to their friend?
I’m so sorry about everything that you are going through, I wish there was something more I could do, but just know that you have me as your friend for the rest of our lives and until we die like this together. That is all they can really give them now because when it comes down to it, no matter how deep friends go without each other not even death will ever tear them apart completely since every time they see each other again after being separated by some sort of struggle in life: whether its physical separation from different homes or emotional separation due to betrayal; they feel closer than before song mean?
The song is about apologizing to a friend for not being there when they needed you. It’s also saying sorry that this person hurt someone else, too- maybe even the one who needs an apology from their loved one. The lyrics in “Dear Friend” convey emotions of regret and sadness with lines like “I wish I had been around/To take some pressure off your mind” or “Forgive me please.” When we apologize it’s because we want to make amends for any pain caused by our actions; these apologies are used as reminders that sometimes people need more than just a quick “I’m sorry.”
The lyrics of “Dear Friend” are pretty straightforward. It starts out with the narrator apologizing for not being there when someone needed him- and it gets more personal from there: he apologizes because this person hurt themselves or another loved one in some way, then wants forgiveness back again.

And considering how often we need to apologize (and forgive) each other throughout our lives, it’s easy to see why this song has such an important message behind it.

Lyrics: “I’ve been gone a long time” she said, and I pulled her close to me.
I didn’t know that love could hurt somebody like this. She says sorry for the pain in my eyes, but it’s too late for apologies now.
She whispers in my ear these words so true: “If you loved me then why’d you go?” These are words as old as time- how can we break such an ancient spell?
The narrator is apologizing because he was not there when someone needed him; no one else needs to say anything back because their apology carries all of his regret.”
* Wow – This content will be really helpful! Thank you for your input.*
No, I’m not going to talk about it.
*It’s too hard.*
*This is all you need to know: don’t ever let a person who doesn’t care for you go unanswered.*
I want them back in my life so bad but they just won’t listen. *They say that time heals everything and maybe one day they’ll come around again, but right now there isn’t anything I can do to get their attention*. So here we sit in silence- never speaking a word of what matters most because it’s easier this way.”
*How am I supposed to live like this? They’re the only thing that makes me happy anymore..*
That emptiness inside me will never be filled. *I don’t know how to live without them*.”
“My heart aches for the times when they would look me in my eyes and smile at me with care- those rare moments that made it all worth it, because I couldn’t feel loved anywhere else but from them. Right now though, they won’t even bother looking back.* It’s been so long since we’ve spoke.. ”
“It took years of building a friendship before anything could happen between us– won’t close no matter what* It never will.* How am I supposed to live without them?”
*How do you tell someone that their love is enough for me? That losing them would destroy my world completely? That even if we’re not together right now, every part of my being knows that one day soon- everything will be okay again because we’ll find our way back to each other.? ”
*The thought of life without them makes me want to scream*.”
*I would do anything to be with them again. I don’t want this pain any more.”
*And here’s the thing- nobody knows how much they mean to me but them, and if they were able to see that in my eyes back then.. maybe we wouldn’t have wound up like this.*”
You know what? It doesn’t matter anymore because it won’t change a damn thing. Maybe one day soon, you’ll find someone who will love you as fiercely as they did and make your world whole again– I just hope when it happens all those memories of us come flooding back through your mind so that every second for the rest of your life is filled with nothing but happiness,”
