Hey ole Friend, thanks for callin'
It's good to know somebody cares
Yeah she's gone, but I don't feel like talkin'
It might be just too much to bear
To hear somebody say it stops hurting
Or to hear somebody say she ain't worth it


You don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
You don't know what we've been through
That girl's my best friend
And there's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do

I can't forget, I'm drowning in these memories
It fills my soul with all the little things
And I can't cope, it's like a death inside the family
It's like she stole my way to breathe
Don't try to tell me it stops hurting
Don't try to tell me she ain't worth it

You don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
You don't know what we've been through
That girl's my best friend
And there's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do

You don't know her like I do
You'll never understand
You don't know what we've been through
That girl's my best friend
There's no way you're gonna help me
She's the only one who can
No, you don't know how much I've got to lose
You don't know her like I do

    I just met a woderful girl and she left me be cause of family problems. Well, another guy starts dating her, and my friend calls me ask ask about her. I told him to listen to this song and then he would understand. Well the guy who was dating the girl said she was too much stress and dumped her. So i call her and meet her at a resturaunt and sang her this song. And now she is back with me

    This song reminds me of me and my best friend. He knows me better than anyone else does and he cares for me like a brother. I know him better than he knows himself. No one will ever understand how a guy and a girl can be friends but that's just no one understands us. I love him like family. He has gotten me through so much and same goes for me as well. Two years of being best friends and nothing has changed. I thank god for putting him in my life because without him i don't know where i would be.

    This song reminds me of me and my x girlfriend. We where sitting at a table with a group of our friends and we were listening to country music and this song came on and half way through the song I looked up and she was looking right at me. We broke up 3 months ago and I still have feelings for this girl and she is seriously my best friend. I've heard so many time since our break up that she wasn't worth it and that I just needed to move on. But this girl was and always will be my world. I mean yeah she left me for a guy but what we shared was special and the only reason we broke up is because she wanted to be able to tell people that she was dating someone and not just friends because her family was against the whole homosexual thing.

    He is telling about a relationship with his best friend... When she leaves he just needs her to help him feel better... In the chorus he lets his friend know that he is not able to help him only she can... It is a beautiful song...

    This song touches home with me, i feel like it should be reversed though because i broke up with my boyfriend and all my family and friends tell me he aint worth it. It makes me wonder if this song hits home with him too. He was my best friend and my whole life, and it feels like he is the only one who can take away the hurt i am feeling. He is moving on though and i have to do the same. But i still cant imagine my life without him, because we've been through so much and i still love him so much!
