View Lyrics

Love is rare, life is strange
Nothing lasts, people change

Every time I lost another lover
I call up my old friend
And I say let’s get together
I’m under the weather
Another love has come to an end

And he listens as I tell him my sad story
And wonders at my taste in men
And we ponder why I do it
And the pain of getting through it
And he laughs and says, “You’ll do it again”

But we sit in a bar and talk till two
About life and love as old friends do
And tell each other what we’ve been through
Our love is rare, and life is strange
Nothing lasts, and people change

And I ask him if his life is ever lonely
And if he ever feels despair
And he says he’s learned to love it
‘Cause that’s really all part of it
And it helps him feel the good time when they’re there

Yes, we sit in a bar and talk till two
About life and love as old friends do
And tell each other what we’ve been through
Our love is rare, and life is strange
Nothing lasts, and people change

And we wonder if I live with any lovers
Or spend my life alone
And the bartender is dozing
And it’s getting time for closing
So we figured that I’ll go out on my own

But we’ll meet the year we’re 62
And travel the world as old friends do
And tell each other what we’ve been through
Our love is rare, and life is strange
Nothing lasts, and people change

Love is rare, life is strange
Nothing lasts, people change
Old friend
