A Friend

What is a friend to me
Someone who is just there
No, it’s someone like you
Who shows they really care
By the little things they say and do

My Best Friend

You’re my best friend
You’ll stay in my heart
In the times we’re together
In the times we’re apart
In bad or good weather

Will You Ever

I don’t think you’ll ever
Truly, truly understand
How much you mean to me
But maybe
One day you will truly see

You Were There

You were there every time
I needed to shed a few tears
You were there when I needed
Someone to quiet my fears
You were there, you were there

I Friend So Hard

I friend so hard for you
Because your friendship
Is well worth the time
And effort
I’m glad you’re a friend of mine

You’re Friendship Is Nice

You’re friendship is so nice
You’re always willing to sacrifice
And so never do think twice
When I call on you for help or advice
You’re my best friend, best friend

There’s A Fire In My Soul

There’s a fire deep in my soul
Because of how close we are
I’ve never met anyone like you
Who care so much for others
You’re a friend tried and true

Thank You

I always wanted to say thank you
For always wanting to be there
Whenever I needed a helping hand
Your actions show how much you care
Thank you for being my best friend

How Can I?

How can I just up
And let you walk away
Without telling you the
Words I have to say
You’re the very best friend
I could’ve of ever, ever had
Your love is deep in my heart

I want you to always be
A come as you are friend
When you’re around me
Never feeling the need to bend
The true you everyone seed

Can change your heart
Wash away pain
Offer you a new start
Might wonder how I know
This to be true
Cause what your friendship
did for me
my friendship can do for you

I Remember

I remember walking among the trees
I remember the warm summer breeze
I remember holding you warm hand
I remember our feet in the sand
I remember thinking about my life
I remember watching life go by
I remember wondering why
I remember seeing the one I love
I remember them passing onto above
I remember sitting at my desk in school
Wondering why I couldn’t be
As good a friend to you as you are to me


Close are you true friend
Close like a brother
Close like a sister
You stick through thick and thin

A Friend Loves

A friend loves at all times
With a love never wavering
With a love never faltering
With a love never departing
I'm glad you're that kind of friend

Iron Sharpens Iron

Iron Sharpens Iron
As your friendship sharpens me
I hope friendship sharpens you
Make us together better than
we can ever be when apart


As in water face reflects face
So the heart of a true friend
Reflects the heart of a friend
So when they look at each other
They know they are two into one
