My Funny Friend And Me (By Sting)

This is dedicated to my Aita who passed away on the 27th of August, 2005.

“My Funny Friend And Me”

In the quiet time of evening

When the stars assume their patterns

And the day has made his journey

And we wondered just what happened

To the life we knew before the world changed

When not a thing I held was true

But you were kind to me and you reminded me

That the world is not my playground

There are other things that matter

And when a simple needs protecting (*see below)

My illusions all would shatter

But you stayed in my corner

The only world I know was upside down

And now the world and me, I know you carry me

You see the patterns in the big sky

Those constellations look like you and I

Just like the patterns in the big sky

We could be lost we could refuse to try

But we made it through in the dark night

Would those lucky guys turn out to be

But that unusual blend of my funny friend and me

I’m not as clever as I thought I was

I’m not the boy I used to be because

You showed me something different, you showed me something pure

I always seemed so certain but I was really never sure

But you stayed and you called my name

When others would have walked out on a lousy game

And you could’ve made it through

But your funny friend and me

You see the patterns in the big sky

Those constellations look like you and I

That tiny planet in a bigger guy

I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry

Just like the patterns in the big sky

We’ll be together till the end is nigh

Don’t know the answer or the reason why

We’ll stick together till the day we die

If I had to do this all a second time

I won’t complain or make a fuss

When the angels sing that that unlikely blend

Are those two funny friends

That’s us
