Sometimes the best advice you can give someone
is listening when they tell their troubles to you
many times a good listener helps a troubled friend
they'll know anything to help you're willing to do.

'Silence is golden' are wise words to live by
the best way to mend a troubled heart is to cry
by the same token often silence is the best advice
amazingly, the reason for this I don't know why.

One thing I do know is we love helping our friends
anyway we can, that's the way friendship should be
medicine can cure many ailments, friendship can too
if I have problems I hope my friends are there for me.
