Here is a submission for you Karen...

It is a song I just wrote!


A FINER FRIEND Words and Music
Copyright Feb 24, 2001 BY PETER H. ROSEN - peter@creativity.net

I SAW THE TIRE TRACKS IN THE ROAD
I KNEW THEY LIGHTENED UP THE LOAD
OF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND OF MINE
I REMEMBER THE LAST TIME

I SAW HER LOOK INTO THE GLASS
FOR THE MOTHERS LOVE SHE NEVER HAD
SHE SPOKE TO THE MIRROR OF HER EYES
NO LONGER MASKED WITH ALIBIS

I HEARD HER SAY I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU, I LOVE YOU,
IT WAS THE REALEST LOVE SHE KNEW
SHE’D HIDE HER PAIN WITH A GENEROUS SMILE
JUST BECAUSE THAT WAS HER STYLE

SHE WENT TO PARTY WITH HER FRIENDS
A POOL OF LOVE THAT NEVER ENDS
THAT MORNING, TIMES HAD GOTTEN ROUGH
SOMETIMES YOU FRIENDS JUST AIN’T ENOUGH

THE MAN SHE LOVED HAD SAID “NO MORE”
SHE CRIED AND WATCHED HIM WALK RIGHT OUT THE DOOR
THATS WHY SHE DRANK, IT WAS HER CRUTCH
FOR LOST LOVE SHE’LL FEEL NO MORE

WHO WAS THAT FRIEND WHO HELPED HER GO (LEAVE)
ONLY GOD AND HE WILL KNOW (BUT WE STILL GRIEVE)
EACH NIGHT HE SEES IN HIS MINDS EYE
IF HE’D SAID “NO” SHE MIGHT BE ALIVE

I’D SURE HATE TO BE THAT FRIEND
WHO DELIVERED HER TO HER END
HIS DREAMS WILL HAUNT HIM ALL HIS DAYS
OF HOW HE LET HER GO “HER” WAY

I SAW THE TREADMARKS IN THE ROAD
WHERE SOMEHOW SHE LOST CONTROL
OR MAYBE SHE HEADED FOR THAT WALL
TO BUY THE BIGGEST LOVE OF ALL

NOW I’M SINGING YOU THIS SONG
DRINKING AND DRIVING ARE SO WRONG
SO IF YOU FRIEND IS ON A BEND, A HEART TO MEND
TAKE THE TIME TO TAKE HER HOME

BRICKS BROKE AND SCATTERED BY THE WALL
THAT TOOK THE JOY OF SOMEONE LOVED BY ALL
SHE WAS A FRIEND OF A FRIEND OF MINE
IN PARADISE FOR THE REST OF TIME

SOMETIMES WHEN I THINK BACK
TO THAT PAIR OF TIRE TRACKS
AND THE FATE THAT CAME HER WAY
I THANK THE FRIEND WHO HELPED HER TAKE THE EASY WAY

WHEN I GET BLUE SHE CROSSES MY MIND
NO FINER FRIEND COULD YOU HOPE TO FIND
A RIVER OF SMILES, A GENTLE SEA
SAILING HIGH, SHE’S FINALLY FREE.
