Bestest Friend

By Bruce Clifford

There's a piece of me that's been missing for so long
It got lost in the memory of a thousand and one songs
There's a corner of my life that went away
It got hidden in the basement where it was forever going to stay

Then you came here without warning
Bringing back the best in me and making me feel alive
All at once I felt like dancing
Cos you're the bestest friend I ever had for my entire life

There's a part of me that was broken when I was taken from my home
Many years later I discovered you had the same loss of your own
Once we were just kids running free and left to roam
Now life has come full circle and we have helped each other grow

When you came here without warning
The memories came rushing past me as if you opened up a gate
All at once I felt like dreaming
Cos you're the bestest friend I ever had and you always make me feel so great

There was a piece of me that was missing before you came along
I thought I knew all the answers, but now I know I was wrong
The past is something we treasure as we live for today
Now we have each other, and that's the way things will always stay
Cos you're the bestest friend I ever had and I wouldn't want things any other way
