Lyrics - "When We Were Friends"

LYRICS TO GRADUATION SONG "WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS" - Adam Blue featuring Lizzy


SO MANY NIGHTS, I'VE LIED AWAKE
THINKING OF THE TIME IT TAKES TO GROW UP

LISTENING TO EVERYTHING OUR PARENTS SAY
THEY KNOW WILL BRING US FORTUNES

I KNOW I'VE WAITED FOR THIS FOREVER I KNOW IT
BUT NOW IT'S HERE AND I AM SCARED TO GO OUT ON MY OWN

AND I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE
WITH ME FOREVER AND EVER RIGHT HERE BY MY SIDE
HOLDING ME CLOSER AND CLOSER
AND IF WE SEPARATE PLEASE DON'T FORGET THE DAYS
WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS WHEN WE WERE FRIENDS

TIME FLIES BY SO FAST YOU NOTICE YOU FORGET
THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE

WE MAKE MISTAKES THROUGHOUT OUR TIME
WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO CAUSE US STRIFE AND HARM US

I'M HERE AND NOW I'M WISHING WE WERE LITTLE KIDS AGAIN
AND WE COULD BE AS CAREFREE AS WHEN WE FIRST MET

CHORUS

HERE WE STAND WITH OUR FUTURE IN OUR HANDS
WE'LL DECIDE OUR FATE AND MAKE OUR PLANS

IT'S NOT GOODBYE BUT SEE YOU LATER
LOOK FORWARD TO AND PLEASE WAIT TO MEET AGAIN

THE MEMORIES WE'VE MADE WILL BE IN MY HEART DON'T FORGET ME
I'LL MISS YOU

I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH BEING WITH YOU
I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY TOO

THOUGH TIME WILL PASS OUR LOVE WILL LAST
A LIFETIME THROUGH AND THROUGH

CHORUS

 

 

About the writers...

Lizzy
 






















Lizzy is a native of Kansas City, Missouri and Phoenix, Arizona.  She has a multitude of talents including songwriting, singing, dancing and the theater.  She was also head cheerleader in high school.
 

"Lizzy is one of the great young songwriters / performers that has come through our studio" says Adam Blue of Adam Blue Productions in Kansas City.  "She has so many song ideas - we are trying to find the right niche for her right now - we want marketability, but we don't want to follow the herd.  Lizzy is unique in that she has the American Idol looks and talent but she is special in that she can actually write great songs - not just sing other artists' songs.  We are very excited for the day when Lizzy finds her niche and starts working her way up the charts".

Adam Blue
 















Taking on a most "Mark Ronson" feel, Adam Blue has been assembling some of Kansas City's best musicians and songwriters for the last 20 years.  Adam is the third generation of famous Kansas City musicians dating back to the 1930's including:

Glenn Darwin - famous crooner in Hollywood and personal entertainer to President Roosevelt and President Truman.  Glenn Darwin was a star from the time he was a child, achieving several Broadway accolades even before the age of 21.  Glenn Darwin was born Darwin Martin Bowen, Jr. in 1912.  His mother, Gertrude Bowen also had another son named George Harvey Bowen who was Adam Blue's grandfather and helped Adam with his musical studies along with his grandmother Karen Bowen.
 

Harry Jenks - Harry Jenks was the classic super-talented musician who decided to pass up the glamour of Hollywood to stay in Kansas City among friends and family.  Harry was the Music Director for Kansas City's Channel 9, organist for The Kansas City Monarchs, The Kansas City A's and The Kansas City Royals.  Harry had many friends and often threw large parties at his house.  Harry's house had a "jam room" where several great musicians would come through and jam music until the small hours of the morning.  Famous author and biographer Terry Teachout dedicated an entire chapter of his best selling novel "City Limits: Memories of a Small-Town Boy" to Harry and the time that they spent together.  In Teachout's novel he reminisces fondly about spending nights at Harry's parties jamming along with some of Kansas City's finest musicians.  Harry was also the musical director for popular Kansas City children's show "Whizzo the Clown" created by Frank Wiziarde.
 

Three generations later, Adam Blue is an accomplished songwriter who plays over 16 instruments, engineers and produces.  Adam owns and operates Adam Blue Productions and manages over 100 Kansas City bands.  Adam Blue Productions has recently expanded, introducing a National band booking website based in 473 cities in the USA called Bands for Hire Live!  Adam has performed on stage with Brooks and Dunn, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Temptations, Gloria Gaynor, Brian McNight, The Little River Band and continues to perform at select shows in the Midwest with his band The KC All Stars and his dueling pianos act BIG SHOW Dueling Pianos.
