Once In A Lifetime Friend

There you are ... here I am
Both of us doing the best we can
You've got your own life oh and I've got mine
Though our music is different
We share the same steps in time

Here I am ... there you are
Sometimes the miles between us seem so far
When those empty spaces start to fill my mind
I think of you and leave my troubles behind

Hey don't you know
You're a once in a lifetime friend
Though others may come and go
I'll be there till the end
Oh yes I will
I love you so we'll share the joys and the tears
I'll be there through the years ... through the years

When we get together good times take to the wings
New hopes and visions suddenly begin to sing
Open hearts and gentle ways
Trusting the ebb and flow
Will guide the direction which we choose to go

Hey don't you know
You're a once in a lifetime friend
Though others may come and go
I'll be there till the end
Oh yes I will
I love you so we'll share the joys and the tears
I'll be there through the years ... through the years

Here I am ... there you are
Sometimes the miles between us seem so far
Still knowing a friend like you
Gives me the strength to be
You're always there ... you live inside of me

Hey don't you know
You're a once in a lifetime friend
Though others may come and go
I'll be there till the end
Oh yes I will
I love you so we'll share the joys and the tears
I'll be there through the years ... through the years
Don't you know don't you know don't you know
You're a once... in a lifetime... friend ............
Oooh friend ....
