"Isn't That What Friends Are For"

(As recorded by B.J. Thomas)
PAUL WILLIAMS

Friends are like music, sometimes they're sad
Sometimes they're lonely and need to be told that they're loved
Everyone needs to be loved
Friends are like good wine, and I've had the best
Don't always show it, but no one knows better than I

So drink up, I'm a homesick 'ole sailor
Who longs for the sound of his own front door
Tell me your stories, I'll teach you my songs and we'll have one more
Isn't that what friends are for?
Isn't that what friends are for?

Friends are like warm clothes in the night air
Best when they're old and we miss them the most when they're gone
Miss them the most when they're gone
Friends love your good side and live with your bad
Want you and need you when no one else knows you're alive

So drink up, I'm a homesick 'ole sailor
Who longs for the sound of his own front door
Tell me your stories, I'll teach you my songs and we'll have one more
Isn't that what friends are for?
Isn't that what friends are for?

So drink up, I'm a homesick 'ole sailor
Who longs for the sound of his own front door
Tell me your stories, I'll teach you my songs and we'll have one more
Isn't that what friends are for?
Isn't that what friends are for?
