Story

This song was written for a very good friend of mine who just lost his battle with cancer.  I believe that music has the power to transcend, so my hope is that this little piece of my love for my friend can bring comfort to his loved ones and to anyone else who has been touched in some way by this awful affliction.  

Lyrics

I’ve known you now for 20 years

It seems so long and it seems so short

But life has a funny way of keeping time

 

We've laughed together, we've played together

We've drank a few too many together

But that's just the way that we seemed to share our time

I wouldn't have it any other way it's all just fine

 

You're a friend, oh a friend

Where would we be without friends

You make the world a better place and I'm proud to call you a friend

 

You always seem to keep a smile

And lend it out for just a little while

To anyone who needs to feel inspired

It's traits like that I just can't help but admire

 

You're a friend, oh a friend

Where would we be without friends

You make the world a better place and I'm proud to call you a friend

 

Looking back my sight is clear, you've touched so many lives

In the days to come when I think of you, I know you'll be just fine

 

You're a friend, oh a friend

Where would we be without friends

You make the world a better place and I'm proud to call you a friend

I love you my friend
