I’ll Be There For You – Song Lyric Sunday – Comfort

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/21/18

***

This week Helen has asked us to consider songs about comfort. Thanks, Helen.

I found it a bit hard to find one, that actually said the word comfort in the title or lyrics. That is, there were some, but I’d never heard of them. I’d rather post a song that I like, rather than just put any old thing on here, just for getting the prompt word. Most times it works out fine, but not this time. Most songs I found were so depressing sounding, I didn’t even care to listen, after reading about them; songs about grief, sadness, death, funerals, and more. No, I just couldn’t bring myself down with songs like these.

So, I went with this one. I’m sure most of you will recognize it, and it is a happy sounding song, about friendship and being there for each other no matter what happens. That’s pretty comforting to have someone like that, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

“I’ll Be There For You”, by the Rembrandts, is the first single released from their album, “L. P.”, in 1995. It was written by David Crane, Marta Kauffman, Michael Skloff, Allee Willis, Phil Solem, and Danny Wilde, and is on the East West Atlantic label. It became the theme song for the TV show, “Friends”.

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, butI’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)You’re still in bed at ten and work began at eight
You’ve burned your breakfast, so far things are going great
Your mother warned you there’d be days like these
But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees thatI’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with
Someone I’ll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I’m best with you, yeah!

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

I’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)
