Off He Goes and that Friend Who is Hard to Be Friends With

Always one of my all-time favorite PJ songs-Off He Goes has never had more meaning than recently. I met a good friend a while back and we really hit it off for about a year. But the last 4-5 months have been real tough as they just have made it really tough by not staying in touch as much and really not communicating well. I am left with the image of Ed's friend riding off just as things are good again and the friends have been hanging out. Not sure if this makes total sense but it where I am at right now. I hope my friend returns to my life someday.

    I understand this for sure.

    When I moved away from my hometown a few years ago, I had to leave my friends and only get to visit them so often. I'm that friend.

    Isn't Ed the friend?

    Exactly. Eddie has repeatedly admitted that he used to be that kind of jackass friend.
    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    You can't ask your friends to give you more than they can give. But you can have different kinds of friends. That friend of yours may be the butterfly type and he'll be back someday.
