Perfection like this can’t be guaranteed
Hearts get lost… lovers leave
Lets just see what friendship actually needs

And if you ever do wrong I’m right behind you
If ever you may sin, count me in
If that devil doubt should come to find you
Count on me and don’t you count on him

If luck should quit this town
If fortune sails
If conversation breaks down
If love derails
I’ll be that back up call
If all else fails
