Friends Not Lovers (Dedicated to PB)


You came into my life when I needed you most
I had almost faded away, becoming a ghost
A ghost of the man that I once used to be
Then your friendship came and helped rescue me

Mow I'm a happy man once again
Tears, a remnant of way back when
You're not my lover, only my friend
Still, with you my life I want to spend

I couldn't help myself, I fell in love with you
Confessing my feelings, the right thing to do
You said you loved me, but only as a friend
So friends we will be right up to the end

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
