Don Williams – You're My Best Friend lyrics

You placed gold on my finger
You brought love like I've never known
You gave life to our children
And to me a reason to go on
You're my bread when I'm hungry
You're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean
But most of all you're my best friend
When I need hope and inspiration
You're always strong when I'm tired and weak
I could search this whole world over
You'd still be everything that I need.

    To the best of my knowledge,
    This song is actually sang to demonstrate a kind of deep romantic relationship between a man and a woman. It shows the high level of trust one has for the other and how reliable one feels in the hands of the other.
    This deep, romantic, selfless and dependable love is completely satisfactory.

    According to my understanding, this song was composed by a married woman to express her feelings of being loved by her husband. She was also trying to tell her husband not to disown her cos she loved him so much. It was also meant to let the husband understand how much she loved and relied on him always. This song was just like a reminder to that married man that the wife was actually need him and she could be dead if he leaves her to another woman. This song is a reminder about other people who had said that 'a friend in need is a friend indeed'.

    It took me until I was 47 years old to find my best friend. We tell each other everything and support each other in everything. I have never had anyone stand by me like he does. He not only makes me a better person but makes me want to be a better person. We are proof you do not have to be husband and wife to be this close and it proves men and women can be "just friends".

    The meaing to this song to me is just what my husband and I had for 45 years. He was my very best friend and I was his. He was my life. He made everything wrong, right again. I had no fears because he was there for me. Now, my memories of him are so dear to me. I wish everyone could have the kind of love and friendship we had. This kind of friend only comes once in a life time.
