WE COULD BE FRIENDS

Music & Lyrics by Kareem Salama

V1
When I was young I had a friend named Kyle
And we fight everyday and I didn’t know why
I thought I knew him and he thought he knew me
And I knew what I knew and so did he
And one day after we got in a fight
I figured there was no way to make things right
But mama said a little gift reminds us
Forgiving is q gift that unwraps love
I should have known that we could still be friends (2x)

CHORUS
If we could walk through these walls that exist in our mind
See that the smile on your face is linked to the smile that’s on mine
I was hoping that we could be friends
I was hoping that we could be friends

V2
16 and rebel to be
I didn’t think about nobody else but me
Daddy said one day you’ll know
I said why wait till one day I’m already grown
Grown out of yes sir and yes ma’am
Grown into know-it-all I understand
Took some time but I finally realized
That mom and dad were friends for life
I should have known that we’d always be friends (2x)

CHORUS

BRIDGE
This ones got money and that ones got none and that one thinks this one is better because
That one lives there and this ones lives here but the space between us can disappear
When we will finally see that’s it’s the soul and the smile that matters to you and me

V3
First day of university
I saw my friend for life and the end of me
Never believed in love at first sight
But never stared straight in the face of sunlight
She was in all the premed clubs
And I joined too which was crazy because
I was a math major who couldn’t stand blood
Ended up in med school for my love
I was hoping that we could be more than friends (2x)

If we could walk through these walls that exist in our mind
See that the smile on your face is linked to the smile that’s on mine

CHORUS
