Dear Friend, what's on your mind
You don't laugh the way you used to
But I've noticed how you cry
dear friend I feel so helpless
I see you site in silence
as you face new pain each day
I fell there nothing I can do
I know you don't fell pretty even though you are
but it wants your beauty that found room in my heart

dear friend you are so precious dear friend

dear friend I'm here for you
I know that you don't talk too much
but we share this day anew
dear friend please don't feel like you're alone
there is someone who is praying
praying for your peace of mind
hoping joy is what you find
I know you don't feel weak
even though you are
but it wasn't your strength that found room in my heart
dear friend you are so precious dear friend

    General CommentTo me this song goes deeper than just what is seen on the surface. This song to me is her best song in that it displays unconditional love that someone can have for another. It can be about a friend,parent,sibling,significant other.

    Stacie notices her friend is acting different and is withdrawing from the world. She can sense that her friend is struggling with something beyond her control. She feels "helpless" that she can't help her friend.

    She knows her friend has an beautiful and amazing soul. Whats sad about this song is that she knows her friend doesn't know that about herself and maybe never will.

    "hoping joy is what you'll find" is a lyric that always touches me. Thats the meaning of unconditional love. Its selfless and genuinely wants the other to be happy.

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS TOUCHING AND HEARTFELT. THE THEME IS ABOUT AN EATING DISORDER CALLED ANOREXIA. BUT, THIS CAN GO DEEPER, FOR IT IS SENDING THE MESSAGE OF LOVE. IT IS PROVING THAT LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, ETC. CAN LAST THROUGH HARD TIMES. TRUE FRIENDS WILL BE THERE IN THE GOOD TIMES AND THE BAD. GO STACIE ORRICO! MOST ARTIST DON'T TOUCH SUCH SENSITVE TOPICS, BUT STACIE HAS TOUCHED MY HEART AS WELL AS MANY OTHERS. GOD BLESS.
