We have something that holds us together
Something that made us both better
Something called being a friend
It makes the fun never end
And it helps me to know that when
I am down and blue
Because you're my friend
I can count on you
We run through life without a care
Would anyone try to part us?
They wouldn't dare
And when the time comes for me to go
I really want for you to know
That even though my life has come to an end
I will never stop being your friend
