Dan Seals – One Friend lyrics
I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will.
I always felt that we were blessed,
And I feel that way, still.

Sometimes we took the hard road,
But we always saw it through.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you
.

Sometimes the world was on our side;
Sometimes it wasn't fair
.
Sometimes it gave a helping hand;
Sometimes we didn't care.

'Cause when we were together,
It made the dream come true
.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

Someone who understands me,
And knows me inside out
.
And helps keep me together,
And believes without a doubt,

That I could move a mountain:
Someone to tell it to.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

'Cause when we were together,
It made the dream come true.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you
.

Someone who understands me,
And knows me inside out.
And helps keep me together,
And believes without a doubt,

That I could move a mountain:
Someone to tell it to.
If I had only one friend left,
I'd want it to be you.

    Someone had this song on a sheet of paper and showed it to me saying, "hey, this song's good, wanna hear?". Then he sang it to me and I was like, "yeah, the song is good but the singing is not". At that time I knew he meant to tell me the worda to this song, and I can only mask my emotions with the hard joke. After that afternoon, I had the song stuck in my mind. And the boy who sang it to me. And the good news is, 4 years since that sweet afternoon, we are still together, making our dreams come true. This is for you my one friend. Thank you. I love you so much.

    Earlier this day, I sent a letter to the girl I like. It contains everything I wanted to tell her. That I love her and I was very thankful that she became a part of my life. I also said that I'll keep myself away from her and that I was very sorry. After reading it, she texted me. Saying that she too was very thankful of me. She said in her text that she dedicates this song to me. I didn't have the slightest idea about this song or whatever it means. Just some moments ago, I remembered that I have to look for this song. I went to Google and googled this song. A video with some cute animations appeared, I wasn't so sure if that was the song she's talking about. While playing this song, tears fall down my face. Realizing I shouldn't leave her. I'm now regretting the decision I've made. This song shattered my heart.

    One friend. This song reminds me of my best friend :) he wanted me to sing this to him, but I refused. I refused because I'm not good at singing. Now, I regret that moment, that moment when there is an opportunity to say what's inside, that moment when the song will speak in behalf of my heart. :) now, he's close to me, yet so far. The relationship we have right now is not the same as those good old times. :) change is constant. :) sad but true. : '>

    This song has meaning on so many levels, and brings back so many memories; and not all of them pleasant. This one's dedicated to my ex; I'm glad you're happy now (but kind of glad you're not as happy as you were when we were together!). Though breaking up is never easy, and we had some rough spots to get over, it's still true: if I had only one friend left, I'd want it to be you.

    I have this girl friend. I consider her as my "one friend". She is the one who is very close to me. She is the one who understands me and the one who made me feel better when I was really down and feeling really pained. She was there to lift me up and make me stand again. Because of her, I now have a closer relationship with God because she is the one who introduced me to God. Since the day I met her, she has become my ever dear true friend. She never left me. She always believe the best in me when I no longer believe in myself. She's there when I needed someone to lean on. She's there to encourage me when I felt I couldn't make it. She's just the best friend and the most wonderful girl I've ever known. And I could never let go of her. Even if other friends would turn back on me, I know she wouldn't.
    If I have only one friend left, I want it to be Novem Vicente.

    Thank God for this wonderful friend He has given me.
    Thank you bhai for every good thing you have done. You will always be the best friend.

    Every lyrics has on us. Ar first I thought you were the best I choose I made. That was just for me. That's what I feel wen we are decided to be one. But along the way we have shared hard times. Sometimes I'm so aggravated but we all through it. Our marriage become As weather there are storm wanted us to destroy there is sunny days but there is aways rainy days. But we always each other no matter what happen. I don't want more than you in my life. I know even we always argue we fought because they wanted us to give up each others. Though I'm so paranoid. And you are always made my head ache. I know you always there for. You were the one who's everything in me. I know though you will not show me that you believe me what I can do. I know you always there for me and love me. If I had only one friend left. I want it to be you. I love you with all my heart though they keep destroying us. I know your always there for me. Thank you so much. I'm happy for having you in my life.

    I have always had a real hard time trusting people or even really knowing what trust is. After talking to a priest about my thoughts on trust he told me he wanted me to go home and write down everything that I thought was needed in a trusting relationship. I have struggled with that assignment for two weeks. Driving home from work this song came one it is on my play list on my cell phone I fell in love with it the very first time I heard it at 14. As I listened truely listened to it I thought Oh my goodness if I had only have been truely listening would have realized that the words to this song are the very impidame of what trust is. I do have one very good friend that is this song to me. Even though she has been rendered sick beyond belief, we still manage to communicate all that our friendship truely was is and ever will be.

    I wish they can hear this song I 've always wanted to sing this song to a special friend but the only problem is I 'm shy and that friend of mine is a "he" so might turn up to confession but I don't like him just a friend or a brother of mine if I had just a chance that I can admit that he is a very special to me I would say it. My mother wrote this song's lyrics and I felt kinda happiness inside of me. I don't know why?.

    Way back 2007, I was in grade 5 that year we have a transferee classmate coming in Cotabato City. That time I wasn't able to take a look at him because for me it's so embarrassing if I am the who introduce myself. And then time passes by we started playing together with my other friends that time I didn't know that I felt something about him. When I take a look in his eyes I felt something better inside., I don't even know why when I take a look at him I am so happy and if he is absent my entire day was so boring, lonely and I don't know I don't have a courage to do something if I wasn't able to see him. And then until our high school years we are still classmates we are studying in one room until we reach our third year in high school my feelings unto him is more deeper than my feelings in elementary life. One day I felt like somebody else hit me inside it is very painful to me because I heard to my male classmate saying that (okay I'm gonna tell the name of this special someone in my heart) Darryl has an intention to court my school mate whose that time she's in second year. I don't know what I'm going to do I felt like my heart torn into pieces I am so very angry to that girl that time. Then another day has come our "Noli Me Tangere" teacher told us that we are going to roleplay the chapter in which Maria Clara and Ibarra getting to know each other. I am so very happy that time the madness that I felt on past days suddenly gone. Until such time still remember I think it's march he suddenly say that they were going back to Cotabato and they live there again, I heard him saying that maybe he will going to continue his fourth year in Cotabato. That time I felt that there's a knife inside tearing.
    My heart. I don't what I am going to do I want to cry I want to hit somebody using the chair but because I still worried to myself I felt pity to myself so I control my motion. The reason why I post this shall we say the meaning because even though we don't have a leisure time to spend together we don't have a deep closeness to each other but I felt his a special friend of mine until now I am hoping that we are going to meet again. I am now in 3rd year college omg I don't know if this is fate. That time I was in third year high school and now still in 3rd year. I don't know what 's his standing right now but still hoping that we meet again in the future. For me the best thing that I can do now is to trust.
    God all the things that happens to my life. The thing that I am so very proud for is that I made an 8 years crush to my classmate that became my.
    Friend and even he don't know that he has a very special part of my life, though we did not establish a more deeper friendship but still his a special friend of mine.

    "Darryl, if I have only one friend left I wanted to be you."

    I dedicate this song to the grandsilence group. I found in them the true friendship I ever longed for. I had also sang this song to a very special person in my life, my friend, my brother whom I love so much! For me, he's my "kasangga" for all times. He cares about me, that's why he's so special in my heart. I love you kuya! If I had only one friend left, I want it to be you!

    I used to want to sing this to my husband, however, he died suddenly in 2007. I heard this on the radio today and I realized it would be a great song to play at my funeral to my three children, who have always been there for me. The daughter is always there for me no matter what. Day or night.

    It was such a powerful song that carries with in it the selfless and a meaningful expression of a true friendship.
    It is a journey and a struggle but binded by a strong union. We can just only dedicate to very few soul s around our life. Proverbs 18:24 "There are friends who pretend to be friends, but there are friends who stick closer than a brother".

    I'd love this song eventhough at the present time I haven't found this one friend of mine. But I'm still hoping that someday i'll meet that one friend of mine. Right now, I'm having difficulty making friends because of a reason I cannot tell. And I still don't know if I could overcome this trauma but I'm still putting up my hopes for that one friend (that would someday come my way). A friend who would understand me not merely by what I look in the outside but most importantly on what I am on the inside. A friend who would surely understand the true meaning of friendship.
