That's What Friends Are For

And I never thought I'd feel this way

And as far as I'm concerned 

I'm glad I got the chance to say

That I do believe, I love you


And if I should ever go away

Well, then close your eyes and try

To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember



Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for


Well, you came in loving me

And now there's so much more I see

And so by the way

I thank you


Oh and then for the times when we're apart

Well, then close your eyes and know my hearth
And then if you can remember



Keep smiling and keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure 
That's what friends are for
In good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for



Keep smiling and keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure 
That's what friends are for
In good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for



Keep smiling and keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure 
That's what friends are for
In good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for



That's What Friend Are For, adalah lagu yang ditulis oleh Burt Bacharach dan Carole Bayer Sager. Lagu tersebut pertamakali dinyanyikan oleh Rod Steward pada tahun 1982. Selain oleh Rod Steward lagu tersebut juga dinyanyikan oleh Dionne Warwick dkk pada tahun 1985, semua keuntungan yang didapat disumbangkan kepada American Foundation for AIDS Research untuk menolong para penderita AIDS. 


In 1988, the Washington Post wrote, "So working against AIDS, especially after years of raising money for work on many blood-related diseases such as sickle-cell anemia, seemed the right thing to do. 'You have to be granite not to want to help people with AIDS, because the devastation that it causes is so painful to see. I was so hurt to see my friend die with such agony,' Warwick remembers. 'I am tired of hurting and it does hurt.'" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/That's_What_Friends_Are_For)


Lagu ini mengingatkan saya kepada persahabatan yang sejati. Bahkan seringkali persahabatan seperti ikatan persaudaraan. Di dalam persahabatan ada pengalaman suka-duka, dihibur-disakiti, diperhatikan-dikecewakan, didengar-diabaikan, dibantu-ditolak, namun semua itu tidak pernah sengaja dilakukan dengan tujuan kebencian. Saya akan merasa sangat sedih dan kecewa bila kehilangan sahabat, tetapi saya akan senang jika melihat seorang sahabat bahagia.
Pelangi itu indah, ada merah, jingga, kuning, hijau, biru, nila, ungu. Tapi hidupku lebih indah karena aku punya sahabat seperti dirimu yang memberiku sejuta warna. :)
