Lyrics

As I look back at my life
As I move on through the year
Every time I reminisce
One thing rings loud and clear
I'm so grateful
A friend like you
You're the one
Who helps me make it through
All my dreams and
All my hopes to satisfy
I was lost
What could I do?
None of my wishes
Ever came through
You were there
You were there for me
A friend like you
A friend like you
You simplify me
You stand beside me
A friend like you
A friend like you
You mystify me
You lullaby me
You have courage
You risk it all
Pick me up and
Every time I fall
You inspire me
Every day of my life
I was broken
So torn in two
You showed me kindness
Finally you broke through
All my problems
All my troubles just dissolve
A friend like you
A friend like you
You are patient
You are thoughtful
A friend like you
A friend like you
You're so tender
You're so precious
I was crushed
Against the wall
I turned to you
I felt so small
So unselfish
So warm and caring are you
You have courage
You risk it all
Pick me up and
Every time I fall
You inspire me
Every day of my life
As I look back at my life
As I move on through the years
Every time I reminisce
One thing rings out loud and clear
