a friend like you (dylanesque)

some friends come by on sunny days
to ask me out to play
some friends wait till the lottery is at 22
and i have tickets in my hand
some friends show up for dinner,
or lunch on 2 for 1 Tuesdays
Some are always there for breakfast
Putting the pillows away

But you, you’re a friend not like the rest
It’s true, you’re a friend that’s like the Best

some friends send cards and letters
when Plaxo tells them to
some friends poke friends on Facebook
like poking is all they have time to do
some friends give me special ringtones
that make people think I’m an infidel
Some friends put me into all the stories
that they believe they have to tell

But you, you’re a friend not like the rest
It’s true, you’re a friend that’s like the best

some friends find it difficult to give
as little as the time of day
some friends are gonna take all those hours
I never intended to give away
some friends are always on vacation
but are still very much here
while others remain stationary
as their minds go over there

But you, you’re a friend not like the rest
It’s true, you’re a friend that’s like the Best

There’s a friend that sticks around longer
Than any brother would
Gets in my face when the going is tough
Does it for my own good
That kind of friend is precious
Some would say also few
But when the days are long and rough
We all need friends like you

Because you, you’re a friend not like the rest
It’s true, you’re a friend that’s like the Best

  1. A true friend applauds our achievements and calls us to task on our errors. It takes a good friend to be a good friend.

  2. a true friend is someone how is there when you need them the most. A true friend at times is hard to find and we all should cherish the ones we have.
