Friend and Lover
Frank Delaney 1975 (C) 2001
We're all searching for our soulmate; our friend and lover.
C (capo 5) Am
When the world around me's moving faster, than I'd care to see,
with a thousand people talkin', rather aimlessly at me,
I can close my eyes, and find my mind is seeking solitude,
dreaming of my friend and lover, to chase away my blues.
In the morning you're my friend, as we rise to meet the day,
makin' sandwiches and coffee, as we head out on our way,
in the evening you're my lover, how you give yourself to me,
quiet pleasures in the darkness, it's so good to be free.
Friend and lover, fill my life,
G F C
bring your love, till the morn's early light,
friend and lover, by my side.
I may never own a mansion, with a guest house by the sea,
or a fancy yacht for cruisin', upon the Caribeaan,
it's not these things I value, they are meaningless you see,
for I have my friend and lover, she is all the world to me.
