    "(I Could Have Been Your) Best Old Friend" Lyrics

    Bonnie Raitt

    Fate is mighty cruel
    Where true love is concerned
    It seems you give out more
    Than you ever have returned
    Lately I have tried
    To make it on my own
    Another nite has passed
    Looks like I'm bound to be alone
    Bound to be alone

    Now solitude is fine
    When you really need it

    When your soul is dry
    Sometimes loneliness can feed it
    When you need a lover
    You know there's nothin' else will do
    When you need love most
    You know it turns it's back on you

    Oh, I can make it thru without your company
    I only wish I knew why you won't comfort me
    I thot that I could count on you
    To hear me cryin' out
    I guess that's one comfort
    I will learn to do without

    Fallin love too easily
    But never quite so fast
    so you are not the first and, lord
    You sure won't be the last
    The thing about the situation
    That makes me feel so sad
    I could've been the best old friend
    That you have ever had
    I could've been the best old friend
    That you have ever had
