"A Man Needs A Maid"

I had a friend who loved this song, and I liked it too, although I couldn't understand the song back then.

Then I let her down, and we drifted apart, and she was in trouble, but so was I, and I don't know if she's even alive, and I'm afraid she is but in pain, and I can't do anything about that, I can barely look after myself.

"A Man Needs A Maid"

My life is changing
in so many ways
I don't know who
to trust anymore
There's a shadow running
thru my days
Like a beggar going
from door to door.

I was thinking that
maybe I'd get a maid
Find a place nearby
for her to stay.
Just someone
to keep my house clean,
Fix my meals and go away.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

It's hard to make that change
When life and love
turns strange.
And old.

To give a love,
you gotta live a love.
To live a love,
you gotta be "part of"
When will I see you again?

A while ago somewhere
I don't know when
I was watching
a movie with a friend.
I fell in love with the actress.
She was playing a part
that I could understand.

A maid. A man needs a maid.
A maid.

When will I see you again?

And I know the answer. I will never see her again, because the person that was her friend is dead, and the person she was is dead, and time and my failures has taken everything we had away.
