There are things that, I don't know

If in this life I'll ever understand

I hope someday that i'll sit with you, 

Sit beside you hand in hand

 

Get to ask you such things

But I never thought much then

About where things could lead

Living beside you as a friend

 

Seems what you needed was 

Someone who didn't ask for much

I think what you needed was 

Just a friend

From a man

Just a friend

 

To give you support through it

Without so much to gain

Someone to stand there with you

While you figured out how to close the gate

On yesterday, him and his ways

Someone to offer you strength

When through your sickness and struggle 

You needed to rest

Someone with whom to pray

Who didn't split the energy 

Of a shooting star in two

Half for them when you needed the whole of a miracle

And oh,

I hope

I was all of that to you

There were those who loved you

In their own way

But oh,

I hope 

I was all of that to you

 

Just a friend

 

Just a friend

 

Oh,

I hope

I was all of that to you

 

...and i still am..
