Name of Song: I found a friend

I found a friend,
Found a home away from home,
I found a real cool playmate,
I am only five.

I love to play with all my toy cars,
My friend likes to play with his too,
We both like to play with the ball in the air,
He is just turned six.

Chorus
Finding a real friend to play with,
No matter their age or their size,
Is a thrill above all the words in the world,
It’s the ultimate reward of being a spirit.

We imagine all the things that we could do,
When we get older and have our own lives,
These dreams that we have make our tomorrow more alive,
But we still like to throw our ball in the air.

We have to sleep more than we want to,
Our little bodies are not up to all our desires,
It often seems such a drag when we can’t do what we want,
Because we’re not big enough, too small, or don’t dare.

Chorus
Finding a real friend to play with,
No matter their age or their size,
Is a thrill above all the words in the world,
It’s the ultimate reward of being a spirit.

We know we will eventually grow up,
And we know that our play days will be gone,
We instinctively know that we will both have to work,
And all the fun will be limited, that’s how it goes.

Growing up we may find we make new friends,
We may find our interests change in many ways,
Then there’s girls to check out, and they demand a little more,
Then there’s choices and careers and that thing called marriage.

Chorus
Finding a real friend to play with,
No matter their age or their size,
Is a thrill above all the words in the world,
It’s the ultimate reward of being a spirit.
______

A lifelong friend is like being immortal,
It gives you strength and an inner stability that most don’t know,
It shows you what’s truly valuable in this cynical day and age,
It’s the bond among us spirits, as we prevail.

Chorus
Finding a real friend to play with,
No matter their age or their size,
Is a thrill above all the words in the world,
It’s the ultimate reward of being a spirit.
