This Is True

My inspiration for writing This is True actually came about from friendships over the years… There is obviously a lot more going on in these friendships than one reads in the lyrics, but they present the general gist of the strong bond between these friendships.

Lyrics:

The first time I went to my friend all worried out that day

I told him ‘bout my troubles that just wouldn’t go away

I said to him, I’m troubled mate, all worried in the head

But lots of people feel that way so this is what he said:

This is true…

Don’t worry about it…

These things seem to happen all the time

This is true…

Don’t worry about it…

Do something else instead and get it all out of your mind

Well I could see the sense in that so that’s just what I’ll do

I knew I could count on my friend, all that he said is true

I went home and did something else

Just anything I could find

And soon I drove those worrying thoughts right out of my mind

This is True…

After that it seemed a while before I worried again

When I did I simply went and told all to my friend

I said to him, I’m troubled mate, all worried in the head

But lots of people feel that way so this is what he said

This is True…

Well I could see the sense in that so that’s just what I’ll do

I knew I could count on my friend all that he said is true

I went home and did something else

Just anything I could find

And soon I drove those worrying thoughts right out of my mind

This is True…

Many years have come and gone and some things never change

A different place, another friend, but things are rearranged

She says to me I’m worried Kev, all worried in the head

But words of wisdom never die so here’s what I said:

This is true…

She looks at me and then she said, Hey, that makes sense to me

I always knew that you would be a real good friend for me

She went home and did something else

Anything she could find

And soon she drove those worrying thoughts right out of her mind

This is true…

So now my friends I hope you’ve realized what I’m trying to say

Don’t just go on worrying, there is another way

I share these words of wisdom that I first learned from my friend

Lots of people feel that way

Get over it!

The end.
