lyrics

Friend of spirit, friend of mine,
I promise I’ll write you most of the time.
Make some sense out of this place we live in
And share it with me.

After all, it’ll get better
And I know what we’re going to do together:
Take the time to notice how we’re wrong,
And we’re wrong every once in awhile.

It’s not my style to be so happy,
But I’m trying to be happy for you.
For all we know it could be the answer.
I’ll love the world, and so should you.

Friend of merits, reason, rhyme,
I’m tempted to rely on you instead of mankind.
Every time I call, you answer brightly,
And say “Hello!” (Hello, Hello)

You pick me up when I’m sad.
I tell ya, you’re the best thing I’ve ever had.
And I will always be around for you
When you need me to.

It’s not my style to be so happy,
But I’m trying to be happy for you.
For all we know it could be the answer.
I’ll love the world, and so should you.

It’s not my style to be so happy,
But I’m trying to be happy for you.
For all we know it could be the answer.
I’ll love the world, and so should you.
