Lyrics
MY FRIEND
words and music by Sam Cooper

Did you know, when you took my heart (from me),
That what you?d do to it might make it come apart?
And did you think for a minute, I?d give you any less than I can?
But you didn?t want it at all, my friend.

When you called it love, did you think I?d be hurt? (when you left)
And when it seemed like a dream, it just fell to the dirt.
And when you said it was love, did you think that it might reach an end?
Now only you can change that, my friend.

(bridge)
In the winter I lost everything,
Like the summer loses Spring.
One day it?s here, but soon it will be lost.
One day you may return,
When you finally come to learn,
The gift of love is worth much more than it costs.
(Uh, baby)

If you should return, rather than leave me alone (please, Babe),
I just might cry a tear or two, just to see you come back home.
And if it all came true, and we had a love like God want us to,
Then all might be right once again, my friend?
Once again, my friend.
