I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will.
I always felt that we were blessed,
And I feel that way, still.

Sometimes we took the hard road,
But we always saw it through.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

Sometimes the world was on our side;
Sometimes it wasn't fair.
Sometimes it gave a helping hand;
Sometimes we didn't care.

'Cause when we were together,
It made the dream come true.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

Someone who understands me,
And knows me inside out.
And helps keep me together,
And believes without a doubt,

That I could move a mountain:
Someone to tell it to.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

'Cause when we were together,
It made the dream come true.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

Someone who understands me,
And knows me inside out.
And helps keep me together,
And believes without a doubt,

That I could move a mountain:
Someone to tell it to.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

    This song has meaning on so many levels, and brings back so many memories; and not all of them pleasant. This one's dedicated to my ex; I'm glad you're happy now (but kind of glad you're not as happy as you were when we were together!). Though breaking up is never easy, and we had some rough spots to get over, it's still true: if I had only one friend left, I'd want it to be you.

    I wish they can hear this song I 've always wanted to sing this song to a special friend but the only problem is I 'm shy and that friend of mine is a "he" so might turn up to confession but I don't like him just a friend or a brother of mine if I had just a chance that I can admit that he is a very special to me I would say it. My mother wrote this song's lyrics and I felt kinda happiness inside of me. I don't know why?.

    One Friend. I don't know how to express whatever in my heart. One friend and If I had only one friend left, I'd want it to be you. How powerful your presence within me and can transform my heart to be better. I appreciate this song and being glad how deep it. I will always sing this song for you my friend as remembering all the journey that we have even thou I don't know how and where are you now but you're still in my heart, in the deepest of my heart. Thank you God for sending her to be my journey. Your bless be upon her always. Amin.

    One friend. This song reminds me of my best friend :) he wanted me to sing this to him, but I refused. I refused because I'm not good at singing. Now, I regret that moment, that moment when there is an opportunity to say what's inside, that moment when the song will speak in behalf of my heart. :) now, he's close to me, yet so far. The relationship we have right now is not the same as those good old times. :) change is constant. :) sad but true. : '>
