The Friend I Grew to Love
We met sometime way back then,
I really can't quite tell you when,
We started a friendship that'd never end,
My love for her was the dividend.
It's really hard when you fall in love,
With the girl that's your best friend.
Every time that I see her now,
No matter where we are in town,
She pulls a smile out from my frown.
If I ever get to feeling down,
All she has to do is come around,
And all my problems fade away.
Even though it's killing me,
She's met the man of her dreams,
I'm glad for her and sad for me,
Seems this is how it's got to be.
Isn't that how the story always goes,
A broken hearted fool's love unspoken,
And the perfect girl who never knew.
I've lost another love, it seems,
But I still see her in my dreams,
I'll just wish her well and let it be.
I wonder if she ever thinks of me,
And all these cherished memories,
In love isn't an easy place to be,
I guess it's better than nothing at all.
Ain't it funny how I can write it down,
But when we're alone and she's around,
