(Odette quesada)

I've known you for so long
You are a friend of mine
But is this all we'd ever be?
I've loved you ever since
You are a friend of mine
And babe is this all we ever could be?

Refrain:
You tell me things I've never known
I shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad
But then again I'm glad

I've known you all my life
You are a friend of mine
I know this is how it's gonna be
I've loved you then and I love you still
You're a friend of mine
Now, I know friends are all we ever could be

You tell me things I've never known
I shown you love you've never shown
But then again, when you cry
I'm always at your side
You tell me 'bout the love you've had
I listen very eagerly
But deep inside you'll never see
This feeling of emptiness
It makes me feel sad
But then again
Then again
Then again I'm glad

    I love this song! They are friends for a long time. But the girl secretly loved the guy. She tried to pretend & listen to the guy whatever he shares, his ups & downs - even his lovelife; logically, it's painful for girl. But because they are friends, even if she feels sad, she's still glad to be a friend of the guy! Ouch! This is what I'm going through with. - a Friend of Mine. :)

    This is the song that i'll be singing together with my beloved siblings for their pahpah. I dedicate this song to him because this is how I feel everytime I think of him. Everytime I see him, I smile. Everytime I hear his voice, I listen. Everytime he sing, I feel every word he says. Everytime I talk to him, I can't help to smile even my heart is crying inside. I do love him for eternity even we're only friends now. I still and forever will love him for all of my life. .
