"You're My Best Friend" as written by and John Richard Deacon....
Ooh you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It's you you're all I see
Ooh you make me live now honey
Ooh you make me live

Ooh you're the best friend that I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine and I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
Oh you're my best friend

Ooh you make me live

Ooh I've been wandering round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You've stood by me girl
I'm happy at home
You're my best friend

Ooh you make me live
Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooh you make me live now honey
Ooh you make me live

You're the first one
When things turn out bad
You know I'll never be lonely
You're my only one
And I love the things
I really love the things that you do
Ooh you're my best friend

Ooh you make me live

I'm happy at home
You're my best friend
Oh you're my best friend
Ooh you make me live
You're my best friend

    General Comment"In rain or shine you've stood by me GIRL." Ivoryjukebox, I don't think this was written from a guy to a guy.

    This is such a happy, feel good song. Cheesy, check. Unoriginal, check. But nonetheless a song that is just brilliant to listen to and put you in a good mood.

    General CommentI love this song. Tis mine and my friend's song. It's about friendship. Duh. And probably is about more, but none of you know this because none of you can ask Freddie Mercury because he is currently dead.
    And just for the record, ivoryjukebox, I tell my girl friends that I love them every day. And I am fully straight, so go die in a hole.

    General CommentI think it's about his best friend/girlfriend/wife and how she got him through so much and also saying his girlfriend/wife is his best friend.

    General Commentivoryjukebox, you can be quiet now. go stand in the corner.

    This is probably my favorite Queen song. My boyfriend gave me a mixed CD on Valentine's Day this year, and this was the first track. I was best friends with him for over a year, and the only reason I became friends with him was because I had a crush on him. Now we're in love, and he's still my best friend. And he's "making me live". :)
