Thanks for Being You

© 1999 Aaron Traffas (BMI)

The good times that we’ve shared, I’ll remember
But the hard times and the bad, I won’t forget
We’ve learned our lessons many times over
All the mistakes we’ve made I never will regret

I don’t know why you’ve always been a friend to me
Lord knows all I deserve is your hate
But because you’ve always been here with me
I’ll be there for you through all your mistakes

There’s so much I want to tell you
And so many times I’ve tried to
But my friend I just don’t know what to say
But today I have to try
For right now we say good-bye
And I wouldn’t have it any other way
I don’t know when our paths will cross
But I’m sure that I hope they do
And I guess that what I’m trying to say is
Thanks for being you

All our hopes and dreams…oh, what vanity
But in one another we’ve learned to trust
And what I’ve learned is how to face “Reality”
But that logic and truth give in to love

But we’ve learned how to question
So that we may understand
Why life is not so simple
When it takes you by the hand
