Lyrics

A Friend Like You

Written By: Kristin Goffman

I remember, being nine years old when I first met you
Starting 4th grade at a brand new school,
Mr. Marshall’s class, we became friends fast
And finding out we lived just a mile away
A short bike ride on a sunny day
Then we closed our eyes, and the years flew by

And I remember, walking to piano lessons every week
Getting side-tracked by the Tastee-Freeze
Fries and chocolate shakes, always made us late
And you’re the only one I can truly say
I’ve been handcuffed to and hauled away
To the local jail, thirteen and scared as hell

CHORUS
Sometimes I stop to wonder
How my life might have turned out differently
Without the love that you gave to me
Sometimes I’m struck with gratitude
For the blessings and the fortune I’ve been given
To have a friend like you

I remember, you stood up for me on my wedding day
Cried with me when I called to say
Divorce was finalized, back to the single life
Then we moved to the mountains for some sacred space
Leaning on each other to find a new way
Without a baby, and without going crazy

CHORUS
Sometimes I stop to wonder
How my life might have turned out differently
Without the love that you gave to me
Sometimes I’m struck with gratitude
For the blessings and the fortune I’ve been given
To have a friend like you

BRIDGE
And a song could never hold all the memories
It’s probably better that way
After thirty years I’m still in awe of you
And I look forward to growing old with you, my friend

CHORUS
Sometimes I stop to wonder
How my life might have turned out differently
Without the love that you gave to me
Sometimes I’m struck with gratitude
For the blessings and the fortune I’ve been given
To have a friend like you
