A song for friends, written at a time when I was sure I didn't deserve such good ones. I hope no one ever has to push me through the eye of a needle. Ouch.
Written by Maria Cahill


I came here 'cause I wanted someone real to talk to
you've got a brain and you use it
you can think a thought through
I've got more than one reason for liking you

You get me high when I am low
You see me to the door when it's time to go
you hold me up and you pull me through
you'd push me through the eye of a needle if I needed you to

We spend our whole lives working
just to be who we are
and all that time that I spent
I can still go too far
so kind of you to not make one remark

I came here 'cause I wanted to let my heart sing
with a friend or two
that don't need to see me anything
you can add some calm to the chaos I bring
