I worry about my friends. They drink more than they used to. But when they’re out drinking I guess I’m out drinking too. I worry about my love. Yeah, I guess that’s what you’d call this. I used to think it was mine to do what I wanted with.

Oh my brothers in arms, how’d we ever get so brave? Flirting with the Daughters of Fortune thinking we would get away unscathed. Oh, my brothers in arms, did you let her go a little too soon? Now she’s out all night with your contemporaries dancing in a darkened room.

I think I’ll be all right. I think I just drank too much. I just need to make it through to the next three-paycheck month. I think I’ll be all right. I just stood up to fast. She said, “we found love too young. No way it was going to last.”

Oh my brothers in arms, are we growing old too soon? All of the charisma that we purchased on credit now the payments are past due. Oh my brothers in arms, is it too late to start again? You were in the basement with your headphones on when history called out your name.

Love is a language we’re still trying to figure out. A long and uncertain waltz between our trust and doubt.

Oh my brothers in arms, does tomorrow come a little too soon? The future was the place where we hung up our doubts, but now the future’s out of room.
