YOU ARE MY FRIEND (Moore 1969)

I look at you, don't say a thing, you're nowhere but here
I donate to you a ticket to explore
I can't get close enough to your existence
But I've never seen a love like this before
Before you came

You are my friend
Crestfallen dear
You are my friend
Marriage or ring
Doesn't mean a thing

I'm smiling, you can feel it, you can't see it
Your eyes are looking at your eyelids' walls
From here they're flesh, from there they must be darkness
But smiling is a feeling, that is all
All when you are here

You are my friend
Hands clothed by hands
You are my friend
Never to cease
Love soaked in peace

I love you, you can hear it without trying
You hear the oceans inside my mouth unfold
The wave comes up and touches your belongings
The sea breeze soft, you wish you had control

You are my friend
Not wife or girl
But you are my friend
Isn't it a shame
That others aren't the same?

BW: Hello?
R: Hi friend
BW: Hi there, how are you?
R: Whatcha doin?
BW: Well, gettin ready to watch a corny movie, I guess. Big Nat said he was gonna read, and I was... Sally's gone to visit Stevie, and my little baby's in Miami all alone...
R: Yeah
BW: Yeah, I keep thinking about him, I think I'm gonna call him, I can't stand it. He wouldn't, but any other kid would think I was buttin' in, but he'll be glad to get a call.
R: How are you?
BW: Fine, are you in a better mood?
R: Yeah
BW: Good
R: I've calmed down.
R: So he's there, huh?
BW: Yeh
R: All night?
BW: Uh huh
R: Every night?
BW: No
R: You can't talk?
BW: Yeah
R: You CAN talk
BW: No.
R: Oh! I see. Well okay, I just wanted to let you know I'm still here and your friend
BW: Good, good... that's, that's... that's GOOD news.
