for a small circle of friends

is there any way
to say it better than it’s been said
is there room to play
with these ideas running here in my head?
will it come to this
that the opportunity has passed?
will it be there again
and this time will it last?

could a friend like you
be just the friend I need?
is it ever true
what they say about friends indeed?
can you help me find
just a little quiet and peace
here in my mind
and make this turmoil cease

a friend like you can stick around
through times like this, and I’ve found
that’s what it’s going to take
of all the things I really need
what I need the most is a friend who sees
yeah, I need a friend like you

what happens at the other end
when things start getting better all around?
when we sit down with friends
and lay all these troubles down?
the sweetest kindness shown
comes when it’s the hardest thing to give
and more than what I own
I need friends like you to really live

a friend like you can stick around
through times like this, and I’ve found
that’s what it’s going to take
of all the things I really need
what I need the most is a friend who sees
yeah, I need a friend like you

pull up your chair
get your guitars and sit down
right over there
we’ll start making our unique sound
in a small circle of friends
right here in a small circle of friends
