Childhood's End

This song is by Kiss and appears on the album Carnival Of Souls (1997).

I lived a life of illusion and you had your kicks
So what, there's nothing left to do
And you and your obsessions and your crucifix
As if what I thought mattered much to you

And you were always my friend from childhood's end
It was forever and ever
Did you understand it's childhood's end
But never, the dream is over

Sunday morning in the New York Times
I read you died last night
It said you were smilin' when you blew your mind
And the note you left behind said:

You were always my friend from childhood's end
Seems like forever and ever
Yeah, you won't have to have to pretend it's near the end
You won't ever be a rock and roller
Yeah, you were always my friend since childhood's end
But never, the dream is over

You were just like me
I was just like you
For eternity
I'll think of you

Yeah, you were always my friend from childhood's end
It was forever and ever
Did you understand it's childhood's end
But never, the dream is over

And you were always my friend from childhood's end
(From childhood's end)
It was forever and ever
(I'll think of you)
Did you understand it's childhood's end
(You were just like me, I was just like you)
But never, the dream is over
(For eternity, I'll think of you)

And you were always my friend from childhood's end
(You were just like me, I was just like you)
It was forever and ever
(For eternity, I'll think of you)
Did you understand it's childhood's end
(You got something about you)
But never, the dream is over
(You got something I need)

You were always my friend from childhood's end
(You were just like me, I was just like you)
It was forever and ever
(I'll think of you)
Did you understand it's childhood's end
(You were just like me, I was just like you)
But never, the dream is over
(For eternity, always be thinkin' of you)
