If You're a Friend of Mine lyrics

If You're a Friend of Mine

Often 'tis much wiser, you'll discover,
To lose a lover and gain a friend!
You escape the woes that love may lead to.
And there's no need to pretend!
Though friendship may be all you say,
There's no denying: and love at times is apt to stray,
A tender friendship that's unending and undying
Is just a form of love, they say.

Though the last farewells must soon be spoken
No hearts are broken: we're not downcast!
Still in thought we shall be brought together,
While friendship's tether holds fast!
The time, I own, has swiftly flown since first I met you.
I never really lived before!
No need to tell you know it well - I shan't forget you,
Whate'er the future holds in store!

Come what may, 'tis sweet to know
That you're a friend of mine!
Night and day, my heart's aglow
If you're a friend of mine!
So, whate'er betide us,
Though the world may keep us apart:
Though the seas divide us,
And though fate may sever
Our lives forever, dear:
Every road runs down the hill,
If you're a friend of mine!
Every load grows lighter still,
If you're a friend of mine!
Dreams may die
As years go by:
One joy we'll never resign
Till journeys end,
If you're a friend of mine.
