Last Words

Album: Ode To J. Smith (2008)
  • Who cheers you up
    When you are down
    Who brings you cups of coffee
    Who picks you up
    When you're in town
    Whatever makes you happy
    And I'm glad you're better now
    But I'm sad you're not around
    Friends
    Won't ever desert you
    Or turn against
    Friends
    Won't love you and leave you
    To mend the fence
    Who wakes you up
    When you're late for work
    Who makes the bed so lovely
    Who found your sock
    Who pressed your shirt
    Whatever makes you love me
    And I'm glad I'm better now
    But I'm just sad you're not around
    Friends
    Will never deceive you
    Or turn against
    Friends
    Won't love you and leave you
    To mend the fence... Writer/s: DOUGLAS PAYNE, FRANCIS HEALY
