My Friend

I owe you my heart, because you've always been there
And I'd do anything, to let you know I care

I owe you my strength, because you've lifted me up
And you were there for me, even when I messed up

I'm uncertain of a lot of things, but I know this much is true
I consider you my friend, and I would die for you
