Thats What Friends Are For
And I never thought Id feel this way,

And as far as Im concerned,

Im glad I got a chance to say,

That I do believe I love you!



And if I should ever go away,

Well then close your eyes and try,

to feel the way we do today!

And then if you can remember . . .



Keep smiling!

Keep shining!

Knowing you can always count on me,

For sure!

And thats what friends are for!



For good times!

And bad times!

Ill be on your side forever more!

Thats what friends are for!



And so, by the way, I thank you and then,

For the times when were apart,

Well then close your eyes and know,

These words are comin from my heart!

And then if you can remember . . .



Keep smiling!

Keep shining!

Knowing you can always count on me,

For sure!

And thats what friends are for!



In good times!

And bad times!

Ill be on your side forever more!

Thats what friends are for!
