What Are Friends For ©

I'm not here to sing you excuses
Or here to explain all my life
There's been good days and bad, And we all wish we'll have
A tomorrow as bright as today

I've learned more from you than I'll ever return
And I've been kind of guilty from start
But what are friends for, if you leave them before
You've told them what's deep in your heart

And I've been on the dark side of nowhere
I Can't say I won't go again
But no one can tell me I'm lonely
If I can still call you my friend
And I've been on the bright side of heaven
You told me just what to do
I wish I could show it all over
But damn it you know I love you
I've done nothing more than you've done here before
And the picture's quit easy to view
If you look in my eyes you will soon realize
The reflection you're seeing is you

It's hard to admit when the shoe really fits
And your nightmares are all coming true
So cast the first stone, if you think you're alone
I'm sure it will come back to you

--Repeat Chorus--
