"Friend Like You" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin....
I like the way you're not afraid
You got the world planned in your mind
People say you cannot do well
They don't know a friend like you

The girl you love has gone away
Still too young to know her heart
She'll return her love renewed
'Cause she'll never find a friend like you

When I had no one to call
All the world had shut me down
I showed up at your door so blue
Thank god i had a friend like you

Many times I've gone without a home a meal
A pair of shoes, if you had three you'd give me two
There ain't no other friend like you

    General CommentIt's funny, I am in no way a religious person, but this song always reminded me of the way people speak about a loving God.

    General Commentto me this song is about an incredible person, the most incredible.
    about someone who does everyone for everyone asking nothing in return.
    all these things they do go unappreciated by so many until these people go out into the world without this person & realise there's no-one else quite like them.

    it's so simple & so very beautiful.
    i feel like it was written about my best friend but luckily i've already realised this is how she is.

    General CommentTo me this seems to be someone who just has someone who will be there for them, always. He seems to be singing in this verse to someone:
    The girl you love has gone away
    Still too young to know her heart
    She'll return her love renewed
    'Cause she'll never find a friend like you

    i think he's saying that his friend's gf/ lover has left him but if he stays a friend and stays beside her as a friend, she will find her heart and see that the best lover is a friend.
