When darkness fades to gray
And dawn turns to day
With everything to fear

still you are there
By my side saving me

from all those lies

I once believed

But now I see

how you truly care

for me

How I was never alone

you were by phone

Waiting for my call

A friendly voice,

a helping hand,
A shoulder to cry on

How could I never see?
You were right in front of me
Since the first time our

eyes cross each other

Back when we were kids
Never worrying about the future
You held my hand and
I felt myself slowly

coming under you spell
Losing all hope of
getting you out of my mind

I tried to get out
Fighting with every last breath
Scared to death of losing myself

You helped me out
By letting go and making me see
How much I wanted you with me
And now what scares me the most
Is not losing myself but you

And when everything

Is said and done

You’re my best friend
No one else could be
