We've been friends for a long long time
You tell me your secrets and i tell you mine
She's left you all alone and you feel like no one cares
But i have never failed you i've always been there

You tell your story it sounds a bit like mine
It's the same old situation it happens every time
Can't we see oh maybe you and me
Is what's meant to be
Or do we disagree

What if i told you -(what if i said)
That i loved you
How would you feel
What would you think
What would we do
Do we dare cross that line
Between your heart and mine
Or would i lose a friend
Or find a love that would never end
What if i said

She doesn't love you
Oh it's plain to see
I can read between the lines of what your telling me
And he doesn't hold you the way a woman should be held
How long can i go on keeping these feelings to myself

What if i told you -(what if i said)
That i loved you
How would you feel
What would you think
What would we do
Do we dare cross that line
Between your heart and mine
Or would i lose a friend
Or find a love that would never end
What if i said

Oh we've both had our share of loneliness
So who's to say we can't have a many happiness
And if i found that in you
It would make my dreams come true
Or would you walk away
Hear what i have to say

What if i told you -(what if i said)
That i loved you
How would you feel
What would you think
What would we do
Oh do we dare cross that line
Between your heart and mine
I've always wondered
From that day that we met
What if i said

What if i said
Ohhhhhhhhh
What if i said

    This song means so much to me because it is basically the love story that existed between my late husband and me. We were both with other people when we met, and were introduced by the man that I was with. We became best friends and later realized that we had fallen in love after he had separated from the woman he was with and things had gone from bad to worse with the man that I was with. We were together for almost 19 years and married for almost 18 when he died in 2005.
