I Want To Be Your Friend

This was one of the first songs I wrote… The video live footage was of a performance at The Phoenix Theatre in the early 2000s, and the festival event title was “Phoenix @ The Phoenix.”

I Want To Be Your Friend

Words and Music: Phoenix J aka Joan Martin
Album: Binary Star 1997

Sample on 

If I could be a hero in your eyes, I would
If I could be someone special, I would
If you could turn your eyes on me, would you?
And maybe see me as yours, would you?

I’m someone who cares for you
Someone who listens to you
Just hear me out
I want to be your friend
I don’t care if your eyes
Start to tear or glisten
I’ll hear you out
I want to be your friend

If I could have one place in your heart, I would
As long as we’re not apart, I would
If you could reach out with your hand, would you?
And let me be a part of you, would you?

I’m nobody til you make me
Somebody to you
Just hear me out
I want to be your friend

A lifetime of hope
A lifetime of need
A lifetime of longing
For someone to share a lifetime with
