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.

    I love the meaning of the song, 'cause for me this song is not only for friendship, for me it's also a relationship with my family especially to my parents, because for me, my parents are also my Best friends forever, you may have a lots of friends in this world, but you only have one pair of parents and they are the one who know's you inside and out completely, understand and believe you without a doubt, that's were they are, so if I have only one friend left I want it to be them!

    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?...

    For me, this song is for a one true friend that never ever leaves your side after knowing the real you. It's also about a person who want to have a true friend that can be with him or her forever. And I want to dedicate this song to my 'Topak Girls' because for me they are the one who is in my side whether I need them or not. I love you all Topaks.
