You Were A Friend Of Mine

Verse 1

Lost a friend today,
I looked around and you were gone
Sometimes it happens suddenly,
You never know if somethings wrong
Regrets? What could I do,
Second thoughts, I've had a few
I keep wonderin' all along,
Why I lost a friend today and you were gone

Verse 2

Nobody told me,
Nobody said I'd hurt this way
Wanted to say goodbye,
So many things I didn't say
I only wish, one more time, to see you smile,
As our lives rush on and on across the miles
A heavy heart, what can I do,
I lost a friend today, God, it was you

Bridge

The years won't erase the memories
All the good times that we shared
Still, I find myself so haunted
Could I have loved more? Could I have cared?

Verse 3

Some things I can't forget,
Warm nights and summer haze
The way it used to be,
How you loved those sunny days
Closed my eyes and I lost you,
It's so dark, I feel so cold
Hurts so much to miss you,
I need a friend today, someone to hold

(INST) Verse changes, but end on E Maj

Outro

Through the years I will remember
Warm nights and summer days
Thou it hurts so much to miss you
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE through all your days
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE, YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE, on and on across all time.....
(INST)
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE, YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE, on and on across all time
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE, I will remember for all times
YOU WERE A FRIEND OF MINE...........
