I’d rather be a companion and sit beside you as long as you want me to
Than to be a stranger in your life without a clue.
I’d rather be a listener to all your talking
Than to be blamed for all your crying.
I’d rather be the one who will believe in you
Than to be the reason for you to lose faith.
I’d rather be here now and tomorrow
Than to be just a part of your yesterday.
I’d rather be your friend and love you all the way
Than to be someone who will hurt you in the end.
I’d rather be a permanent friend than a temporary lover.
