"My Best Friend" as written by Annika Ingrid Maria Norlin and Daniel Alexander Asplund....
You call me up in the mornings
We'll stay on the phone until dawning
You tell me secrets I actually keep
You call me up around noon and
Bring me all the good gossip
You hold my head when I throw up
I hold your hand when you weep

And we talk about friends
Ad we talk about records, talk about life
And we'll talk about death, and we dance in the living room
Dance on the sidewalks, dance in the movies
Dance at the festivals, dance, dance
No men ever really dance like this

Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was a lesbian
Damn! I wish I was, and that you were, too
So I could fall in love with you

You call me up in the evenings
And tell me what they did this time
No matter what, I'm by your side
When it's raining, we'll go to the video store
We even like the same movies
No damn jedis or hobbits, this time

And you laugh at my jokes and I laugh at your jokes
And I even like the birthday presents you get me
And we dance in the living room, dance on the sidewalks
Dance in the movies, dance at the festivals
Let's dance, dance
No men ever really dance like this

Why don't, why don't I fall...?
Why don't I just fall in love with you?

    General CommentThis song is really cute.

    It makes me kinda sad cause it reminds me of me and my best friend but we're growing apart. I thought of her right away after hearing this song and I went to call her and tell her to listen because it would make her smile but she was too busy to talk.

    ohhh life :/

    General CommentI love this song. <3 It's just so spunky and wonderful.

    I especially like this line:
    "We even like the same movies
    No damn jedis or hobbits, this time!"
    hahaha

    My Opinionto me, this song represents the pure basicness of the best friend relationship.
    who hasn't, at some point, temporarily given up on their preferred gender and contemplated marrying their best friend, only to notice that they're not remotely interested in them sexually?
    this should describe every close friendship ever
