(Verse 1)
Whenever I'm feeling down and out
You always know just how to make me smile
Whenever I think I've lost my way
You tell me something sweet that makes my day
Thank you for the long walks and the long talks
You've helped me through so much
And I promise you this my friend
I will be there for you
Honey until the end

(Hook)
I don't know what tomorrow brings
But rest assured you can count on me
Whatever tangled webs we weave
Hand in hand it's you and me
Together we'll face our fears
We'll shed our tears
Whatever comes what may
My friend
I'll be there

(Verse 2)
Now isn't funny how many times
People have said that we're two of a kind
And how we both do those silly things
Where only you and I know what it means
I've placed all my trust in you
For sticking by side
No matter win or lose
Gray or blue
You're my bestest friend until the end

(Hook)
I don't know what tomorrow brings
But rest assured you can count on me
Whatever tangled webs we weave
Hand in hand it's you and me
Together we'll face our fears
We'll shed our tears
Whatever comes what may
My friend

(Verse 3)
When that heart of yours gets lonely
I'll be there
All you have to do is call on me
And I'll be there (don't be afraid, never be afraid)
When at times you think you're helpless
I promise you this my friend (My best friend)
(I'll be there for you. i'll be there to see *weddin bells*)

(Hook)(2x)
I don't know what tomorrow brings
But rest assured you can count on me
Whatever tangled webs we weave
Hand in hand it's you and me
Together we'll face our fears
We'll shed our tears
Whatever comes what may
My friend
I'll be there

(Ad-libs)
I don't know what tomorrow brings
Rest assured you can count on me my friend
Through the thick and thin
Beginning to end
Heartaches and pain
Sunshine and rain
I'll be there my friend
What ever comes may yeah.....
Just be there for me
For you I will bleed
The high road or low road
I'll crawl on my knees
Darling friend together
Hand in hand
Until the end oh
We'll face our fears
Oh yes we will
Whatever comes what may baby
I'll be there.... *weddin bells*

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
