The Civil Wars – I've Got This Friend lyrics

I've got this friend
I don't think you know him
He's not much for words
He's hidden his heart away

Oh I've got this friend
A loveless romantic
All that he really wants
Is someone to want him back

Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, If the right one came, along

I've got this friend
I don't think you know her
She sings a simple song
It sounds a lot like his

Oh I've got this friend
Holding onto her heart
Like it's a little secret
Like it's all she's got to give

Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, if the right one came, along

It'd be such a shame
(If they never meet)
She sounds lovely
(He sounds right out of a dream)
If only
(If only)
If only

Ohh
Ohh, if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, (I've got this friend) if the right one came
If the right one came along
Ohh, (I've got this friend)
If the right one came, along

    I know the meaning of this song, and I've known it since faith hillwrote one just like it many moons ago. They may have changed the lyrics some, but the verses are extremely similar. The guy and girl are talking about each other and how they would like to say something about wanting to be with them, but don't have the courage to ask right out. See fath hill's "i've got this friend" lyrics. Same title and all.
