a recipe for friendship that's old but still true
It's one that never fails, and I'd like to share it with you.
First, you need someone who accepts you as you are,
Someone who doesn't need you to be some kind of major star.
Someone who'll cry with you and share your deepest pain,
Someone who'll lift you till you can stand again.
Someone who finds your jokes funny and laughs to show it.
Someone who really likes YOU, and lets you know it.
Someone you're glad you have all the years through...
This recipe for friendship can be found in you.
I'll never find another friend to take the place of you.
No one will ever touch my world exactly like you do.
No one who's quite so thoughtful, no one I cherish so.
No one will mean so much to me, I just wanted you to know!
