LOVER OF MY FRIEND
Writer: Melanie Safka
Publishers: Songs of Melanie (ASCAP)
From the album PALED BY DIMMER LIGHT (2004)

Where do I take it
Where will it go
Iím scared to death of changing what I know for the unknown
Where will it lead and how will it end
If I become the lover of my friend

Itís been a lifetime, maybe more
I think we were soldiers
It must have been war
We stood for something greater than life
You took it for me on the day that you died
Where will it lead and how will it end
If I become the lover of my friend

What is a friend
What makes a mother, father, husband, wife, sister
What makes a brother?
We just agree, and thatís what we do
You stand by me and Iíll stand by you
Where will it lead and how will it end
If I become the lover of my friend

Where will I take it
Where will it goÖ
