friend lyrics – 12 rods

friend, since i can? t remember when
seems like forever we? ve been together
hey, how long has it been?
friend, i hope you know that you? re my hero
never once thought of yourself
always there to help
man you? re something else

chorus 1
in the dark you were the light
when the truth was hard to find
when i needed someone to call me on it
you? d call me on it every time
through all the good, through all the bad
i knew you always had my back
the best part of being who i am
is that i get to call you friend

some got? em by the hundreds
but when that thunder comes a-rumbling
they? re off and running
makes me glad that i got one good friend
god knows you? ve had your moments, too
sometimes i wonder if you knew
how it meant the world to me
to get to be a friend to you

chorus 2
and when i stumble, when i slip
you never let me quit
always knew just what to say
what i needed to hear, when i needed to hear it
through all the good, through all the bad
i knew you always had my back
the best part of being who i am
is that i get to call you friend

in the dark you were the light
when the truth was hard to find
when i needed someone to call me on it
you? d call me on it every time
through all the good, through all the bad
i knew you always had my back
the best part of being who i am
is that i get to call you friend

friend, when i look back on this crazy life
at least i know i got one thing right
if all i ever get to do
is to get to call you my friend, my old friend
