"My Best Friend" as written by William Luther and Aimee Mayo....
I never had no one that I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin' so tired of searchin'
Til you walked into my life
It was a feelin' I'd never known
And for the first time I didn't feel alone

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend

You stand by me you believe in me
Like nobody ever has
When my world goes crazy
You're right there to save me
You make me see how much I have
And I still tremble when we touch
And oh the look in your eyes
When we make love

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
And I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
And oh we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Every time I look at you
And I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend
You're my best friend

    General CommentThis song is AWESOME! It totally explains my "best friend" and I!....."You're more than a lover
    There could never be another
    To make me feel the way you do
    And oh, we just get closer".
    It's the best feeling when you realize that your "best friend" is your soulmate! "And I don't know where I'd be without you here with me,
    Life with you makes perfect sense. You're my best friend". A true lover and soulmate should be your "BEST FRIEND". It is beautiful when you can picture the rest of your life with one person!

    General CommentThis is the song that my boyfriend played for me to let me know exactly how he was feeling about me. It is now our theme song. We listen to it along with other of "our" songs during romantic dinners as well as when we are making love. The wonderful thing about this song is that it is also exactly the way I feel about him. Tim & Faith are a perfect couple and that is what we are striving to be as well. What a wonderful song for me and my wonderful man!

    General CommentThis song is sentimental because it express how this man feels about the woman that has come into his life. She is someone he can depend on and even more important someone he loves. His feelings for her have grown stronger and made his life that much more worth living. Their love grew and they became best friends.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites from Tim, I dedicated it to my bf when i was out of town for a week, andwhen i got back i made him listne to it. He almost cried. In my mind its about two people who arnt just a couple, but best friends adn can count on eachother for anything. They will always be there for eachother.
