Lyrics

When you think life's unfair
And you feel nobody cares
Don't be afraid to open the door
Then you'll find you're not alone anymore
Sometimes there's rainy days
You may need help along the way
Do not despair, you know we'll be there
That's What Friends are For
All pull together
All join hands
Old friends together forever
We are the best friends
We stand as one
Whatever life may bring
We are never alone
We're together, forever...
...as one
Life's full of ups, and downs
Just like a merry-go-round
Happy or sad, we will stick by your side
That's What Friends are For
All pull together
All join hands
Old friends together forever
We are the best friends
We stand as one
Whatever life may bring
We are never alone
We're together, forever...
One day, we may be apart
And the distance may sadden our hearts
Wherever we stray, remember this day
Friends together, forever...
...we stay
