I guess this time you're really leaving 
I heard your suitcase say goodbye 
And as my broken heart lies bleeding 
You say true love it's suicide 
 
You say you're cried a thousand rivers 
And now you're swimming for the shore 
You left me drowning in my tears 
And you won't save me anymore 
 
Now I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl 
 
I'll be there for you 
These five words I swear to you 
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
I'll be there for you 
I'd live and I'd die for you 
Steal the sun from the sky for you 
Words can't say what a love can do 
I'll be there for you 
 
I know you know we've had some good times 
Now they have their own hiding place 
I can promise you tomorrow 
But I can't buy back yesterday 
 
And Baby you know my hands are dirty 
But I wanted to be your valentine 
I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby 
When you get drunk, I'll be the wine 
 
I'll be there for you 
These five words I swear to you 
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
I'll be there for you 
I'd live and I'd die for you 
Steal the sun from the sky for you 
Words can't say what a love can do 
I'll be there for you 
 
[Solo] 
 
And I wasn't there when you were happy 
I wasn't there when you were down 
I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby 
I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out 
 
I'll be there for you 
These five words I swear to you 
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
I'll be there for you 
I'd live and I'd die for you 
Steal the sun from the sky for you 
Words can't say what a love can do 
I'll be there for you
