There's just this one kind of friend
that I hardly ever see
They nod their heads saying they understand
And are always there for me.
They're always, always, always
ALWAYS on my side.
No matter what thing I did wrong
If I hit or hurt someone, even if I lied.
And while others put me down
These friends bring me up
They make me feel so good about myself
it's like winning a game or petting a pup.
It's a lot like seeing a counselor
but cheaper, easier, and I'm able to hug.
They hug me right back, and walk with me
Even if I'm speeding upstairs, or going slower than a slug
My other friends asked me
If there was a word for that person that's new
And I just simply told them,
'it's a friend that's actually true."
