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

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

Keep smiling
Keep shining

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

Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Oh
And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes
And know these words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember...

[Chorus:]
Keep smiling
Keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Keep smiling
Keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Keep smiling
Keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

    This would be to a husband or wife. Especially thoes who are over seas in the war listen to the words and keep them close. For me personally this is for my best friend jessica she never left my side even when I left hers she kept everything close to her till I came back and now we are at the end of the song we will keep smiling and keep shining knowing we can always count in each other.

    This song reminds me of my best and closest friend. This time last year we didn't realli know each other, and now we have known each other for about 7 months and we are so close, his friendship means so much to me and we have spent so much time together since we have met. But even when we are apart there is a strong relationship. A friendship that I hope will last forever. :)
