Love and Friendship

Verse 1:

From the moment I met you,

You've always been different.

You were the popular kid in school, duh.

You somehow made room to be my friend.

 

We were friends for many years,

We grew up together.

You've even seen my tears.

The good, the bad, everything you've seen.

 

Pre-Chorus:

I have loved you for years,

Friendship made it stronger,

Friendship made it stronger.

I want to let you know that I love you.

I love being around you,

Yet you seem to throw me away,

And there in the background, I lay.

 

Chorus:

I just want to let you know that,

I'd jump in front of a car for you.

I jump in front of a gun for you.

I would take a beating for you.

I would lay down my life for you.

That's how much I love you.

 

Verse 2:

We were so close as kids, yeah,

You came over all the time.

We had so much fun, yeah,

We lost track of time.

 

At some point we stopped, yeah,

Stopped hanging out.

It makes me so sad, yeah,

I wish I could turn back time.

 

Pre-Chorus:

I have loved you for years,

Friendship made it stronger,

Friendship made it stronger.

I want to let you know that I love you.

I love being around you,

Yet you seem to throw me away,

And there in the background, I lay.

 

Chorus:

I just want to let you know that,

I'd jump in front of a car for you.

I jump in front of a gun for you.

I would take a beating for you.

I would lay down my life for you.

That's how much I love you.

 

Verse 3:

You changed my life,

Made it right.

I've watched you grow through the strife.

You made life worth living.

 

You feel so distant, so far away.

Even if you don't love me back,

I will still think about you every day.

Even though you broke my heart.

 

Pre-Chorus:

I have loved you for years,

Friendship made it stronger,

Friendship made it stronger.

I want to let you know that I love you.

I love being around you,

Yet you seem to throw me away,

And there in the background, I lay.

 

Chorus:

I just want to let you know that,

I'd jump in front of a car for you.

I jump in front of a gun for you.

I would take a beating for you.

I would lay down my life for you.

That's how much I love you.
