Love Me As Your Friend
Copyright ©2008 JJ Williams All Rights Reserved

1. If a friend is all I can be to you, then a friend to you I'll be
Show me how to accomplish that and what you want from me

I wish you no hard feelings, on your quest to reach an end
I want only to remember, the times we had as friends

2. If the past is just too painful, To let it slip away.
And the future has no plan of hope to bring a brighter day

Then all that's left is the present and how we just pretend
that we're not in love and want nothing more than just to be good friends

Love me as your friend again, trust me if you can,
I'll see you in another life. Where we might start again
Love me as your friend and then, I will make a stand,
I promise to forever love.......
The you, you call my friend.

3. On the day that you said goodbye and you did what you thought was right.
Remember me as the one who only cared enough to fight

To hurt you in any way as you say I have my friend.
To love you till eternity was my only battle plan

4. Years from now when you're old and gray as I watch you from above.
Please know that I had truly cherished the way we once had loved

Look to the sky and say a prayer to comfort me and then
I'll be your Angel and you'll be mine, when when we finally meet again.


Love me as your friend
Love me any way you can
Love me as your friend
