Patti LaBelle – You Are My Friend lyrics

You are my friend,
I never knew it 'til then
My friend, my friend

You hold my hand,
You might not say a word
But I see your tears when I show my pain

You're--- my, my friend
I never knew it 'til then
My friend
I feel your love,
When you're not near
It helps me make it knowing you care

The thought of you helps me carryon
When I feel all hope is gone
I see the world wit brand new eyes
Your love has made me realize
My future looks bright to me,
Oh because you are my friend
Da, da, da, da (ad lib)

I've been looking around and you were here all the time.
Da, da, da (ad lib)
I've been around and around and around and around
Da, da, da
I've been looking around and you were here all the time

    When you're in deep trouble and, there seems nowhere to turn; no one who truly understands, there's that one person who you can talk to, depend on and guide you through any strom.
    They won't judge, speculate or deny you. But, when you need to hear the painful truth of any situation, again, they are there for you.
    When someone dies or abandons you to walk alone, they suddenly appear, take your hand and help you even through life's potholes. They pick you up, brush you off and wipe your tears away while holding you close in their arms.
    God, provides us with many friends. But, if you're lucky (and know it), a man, a woman or even a child has one real friend. . "you, are my friend"! - thank you god, for blessing me!
