Raven-Symoné Keep a Friend Lyrics

He who asks for a friend
Must first prove himself friendly
Trials will come, will you be
Fair weathered or will you be steady?
Surely, firmly, are you my friend?

We were close, closer than most
More than friends, nothing could come between us and then
Arguments and experience
Came creepin' in, how long has it been?

Didn't want you to leave, we couldn't agree
So I said to you stop talkin' to me
That's where we left and now I'm reconsidering
I did the wrong thing, girl, listen to me

Tell me, what's up? I've had enough
How do we get back on telling you sorry?
My mom said, that's how you keep a friend
Keep a friend, keep a friend
Tell her you're sorry when you're wrong

That's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
And that's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
That's how you keep a friend

I told you things never told nobody
We shared everything
Somebody told you I was in town
Where was I? Had you gotten a reply?
I apologize wish you'd come around

Didn't want you to leave, we couldn't agree
So I said to you stop talkin' to me
That's where we left and now I'm reconsidering
I did the wrong thing girl, listen to me

Tell me, what's up? I've had enough
How do we get back on telling you sorry?
My mom said, that's how you keep a friend
Keep a friend, keep a friend
Tell her you're sorry when you're wrong

That's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
And that's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
That's how you keep a friend

Can't even remember why we fell apart
But I'm so glad we got back together
Girl, you're like a sister to me
So much more than a friend
So make sure it don't happen again

Tell me, what's up? I've had enough
How do we get back on telling you sorry?
My mom said, that's how you keep a friend
Keep a friend, keep a friend
Tell her you're sorry when you're wrong

That's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
And that's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend

That's how you keep a friend
That's the way you keep a friend
And that's how you keep a friend
That's how you keep a friend

What I gotta do to put this thing back together?
What I gotta do to put this thing back together?
