Dionne & Friends – That's What Friends Are For lyrics

And I never thought I'd feel this way

And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
that I do believe I love you.
And if I should ever go away

Then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
and then if you can remember:

Keep smilin'
keep shinin'

Knowing you can always count on me for sure -
That's what friends are for.
For good times and bad times
i'll be on your side forever more -
That's what friends are for.

you came and opened me
and now there's so much more I see

And so by the way I thank you.

and then for the times when we're apart

then close your eyes
and lovely words are comin' from my heart

And then if you can remember:

Keep smilin'
keep shinin'
.. .
Keep smilin'
keep shinin'
.. .
