when everything is wrong
I'll come talk to you
you make things alright
when I'm feeling blue

you are such a blessing
and I won't be messing
with the one thing that brings light
to all my darkness

you're my best friend
and I love you
and I love you
yes I do

there is no other one
who can take your place
I feel happy inside
when I see your face

I hope you believe me
'cause I speak sincerely
and I mean it when I tell you
that I need you

you're my best friend
and I love you
and I love you
yes I do

[guitar solo]

I'm here right beside you
I will never leave you
and I feel the pain you feel
when you start crying

you're my best friend
and I love you
and I love you
yes I do

you're my best friend
and I love you
and I love you
yes I do
yes I do
yes I do

    General CommentI love this song cuz im in the same sitch as S0nlxaftrsh0ck..i am in love with my best friend, and + i think that it's hard to have a guy best friend without falling in love with them, cuz if u are close enough and have soo much in common to be best friends then ur bound to be 2gether, well anyways this song is awesome and soo are their other songs on their new album. . . i love rivers!!

    General Commentthis song is wonderful.
    my best friend is going through some bad things, and she has been feeling pretty down lately, but i'm going to play her this song, and hope it cheers her up, even for a minute.

    General CommentThis song means the world to me. It sounds just like me & my best friend, i was trying to find a song that reminds me of him and...i did! Everything it says is EXACTLY how i feel (and vice versa). But i love him like my best, best best best best best best (etc...) friend/"brother". But we're graduating & he's moving so its sad...*tear* But it doesnt change the way i feel or w/e...

    General Commentwhat's to say this song is about a romantic interest? cuomo never says "i'm in love with you," just that he loves whoever the song is about. seems intentionally platonic to me, more about the non-romantic imtimacy between two best friends. i don't really see the whole unrequited love angle here. but i like the simplicity of the song.

    who knows... could be singing it to a girl... or a guy... or his dog... or himself?

    General Commentthis song means a lot to me... i mean A LOT...
    my best friend and i were in a big fight... going as far as saying we're completely done with one another... which really sucks becuause ..well.. we love each other ...i mean he has plans of us being married in the future and all... and the very last thing i said to him before we were going to go our seperate ways was "read the lyrics to my best friend by weezer" ten minutes later i was hearing "i miss you... i love you... and thank you for everything"...*tears* this songs a life saver :0)
