John McDermott – Friend Like You lyrics

I don't have to look any further
Like I always used to do
No searching for some other unknown mystic lover
Now I've found the perfect friend in you
There are those I've known for a lifetime
Others, they're brand new
They come through lucky chance,
Some from brief romances
They'd all love to have a friend like you

But you took me by suprise
I wasn't ready for you
Something flashed before my eyes
Suddenly I adored you, adored you

I was never terminal lonely
From my sheltered point of view
My life was kind of simple, I hadn't built a temple
Dedicated to a friend like you

On the way from cradle to tombstone
There may be a lucky few
Who sail through life untroubled,
Floating on the bubbles
In the wake of special friends like you

When you took me by surprise
I couldn't help but allow
One day vague, the next day wise
To love you beyond tomorrow, tomorrow

You took me by surprise
I wasn't thinking of you
Suddenly realized
How much I really loved you, I love you

Now I don't need to look any further
Like I always used to do
No searching for some unknown mystic lover
Now I've found the perfect friend in you
Now I've found the perfect friend in you
Oh my perfect friend how I love you
