We met in ninety- seven
Now lets count nine ten eleven
Years filled with many laughs
We even took a few baths
You set my kitchen on fire
And many times called each other liars
You are my Best Forever Friend

I took care of you when you were sick
We mastered speed, man we were quick
Every year you make me a birthday cake
We can always count on each other not to flake
Late nights comforting each other when we were in tears
Talking about everything even our greatest fears
You are my Best Forever Friend

You were always there for me
Even when I wanted nothing more than to flee
This horrible life I’m in
You are my Best Forever Friend

You didn’t leave me even when
I didn’t listen to you when you told me to leave
All I wanted was to believe
That one day I and he could be together
But that did not happen what so ever
You are my Best Forever Friend

For he would always yell, at hit me
And to you, I would flee
You would welcome me always with open arms
And always do your best to keep me out of harm
You are my Best Forever Friend

Then one day he crossed the line
I had cuts and burses, but I told you I was fine
You told me something had to be done
I could not let him know he had won
You are my Best Forever Friend

I refused because my love he still had
Even though what he did was so bad
Then I heard he did the same thing to my friend
That was when I knew it had to end
You are my Best Forever Friend

Two accounts of rape, is what he got
Because of you he is now surrounded with cops
You helped me save another girl from getting hurt
You are my Best Forever Friend
