All My Friends

Words & Music | John William Carlson and Mark Bunn ©2020

Hey thanks for calling me and checking in
Yeah, I guess it’s been awhile, how ya been?
Me, I’ve been doing alright…somebody told you what?
They say I’ve been lonely, since we’ve been broken up?
You must’ve heard that from Jealousy
Cause I’ve got all my friends here with me

Payday and Whiskey got the weekend going
Everybody just showed up I didn’t even know it
Happy brought his six string, he’s playing feel good songs
Hope and Content were singing right along

I ain’t as lonely as you’d thought I’d be
Cause I got all my friends here with me 

Just a minute, there’s someone at the door
I think it’s Reminiscing, yeah she’s here been before
She never comes alone, she always brings a friend,
Wouldn’t you know it, she brought Memory again

I ain’t as lonely as you’d thought I’d be
Cause I got all my friends here with me 

It was somewhere after moonlight,
When Doubt came rolling up
Regret started pouring rounds
While Heartache held the cups
Lights in the driveway and in came walking Truth
And right behind him came, Missing You… 

Stubborn and Old Fool are gettin’ kinda loud
Oh, them two can sure thin out a crowd
Memory’s crying in the bathroom down the hall
It may be late, but I’m so glad you called

As anyone can plainly see,
I got all my friends here with me

Happy started packing up, he said he had to go
He said, ‘Ain’t nobody listening, I’ll see you down the road’
Hope got tired and said she’s going to bed
She said,’ Try to keep it down, I mean the voices in your head’

I ain’t as lonely as you’d thought I’d be
Cause I got all my friends here with me
