  • I guess this time you're really leaving
    I heard your suitcase say goodbye
    Well, as my broken heart lies bleeding
    You say true love, it's suicide
    You say you've cried a thousand rivers
    And now you're swimming for the shore
    You left me drowning in my tears
    And you won't save me anymore
    I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl

    I'll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you
    I'll be there for you
    I'd live and I'd die for you
    I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can't say what love can do
    I'll be there for you

    I know you know we've had some good times
    Now they have their own hiding place
    Well, I can promise you tomorrow
    But I can't buy back yesterday
    Yeah, baby, you know my hands are dirty
    (Oh, woman, you know my hands are dirty)
    But I wanted to be your Valentine
    I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby
    When you get drunk, I'll be the wine, oh

    I'll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you
    I'll be there for you
    I'd live and I'd die for you
    I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can't say what love can do
    I'll be there for you

    I wasn't there when you were happy
    (I wasn't there to make you happy)
    And I wasn't there when you were down, down
    Didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby
    I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out
    Oh

    I'll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you
    I'll be there for you
    I'd live and I'd die for you
    I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can't say what love can do
    I'll be there for
    I'll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you
    I'll be there for you
    I'd live and I'd die for you
    I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
    Words can't say what love can do
    I'll be there for you
