Falling in love with your best friend could be best or the worst thing that could ever happen to you... You know each other's habits, quirks and obsessions. You've been there to see the good and bad and you've stuck with them through thick and thin... but there is also a fine fine line between a fairy tale and a waste of time... these are my top 20 songs about falling in love with your best friend...
01. Alanis Morrisette – Head Over Feet
You're the best listener that I've ever met / You're my best friend / Best friend with benefits / What took me so long? / I've never felt this healthy before / I've never wanted something rational / I am aware now / I am aware now
02. Survivor – The Search is Over
How can I convince you what you see is real? / Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel / I was always reachin', you were just a girl I knew / I took for granted the friend I have in you / I was living for a dream, loving for a moment / Taking on the world, that was just my style / Now I look into your eyes I can see forever, the search is over / You were with me all the while
03. Vicentico – Algo Contigo
Hace falta que te diga que me muero por tener algo contigo? / Es que no te has dado cuenta de lo mucho que me cuesta ser tu amigo / ya no puedo acercarme a tu boca sin deseártela de una manera loca / necesito controlar tu vida / ver quien te besa y quien te abriga
04. REO Speedwagon - Can’t Fight this Feeling
I can't fight this feeling any longer / And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow / What started out as friendship, has grown stronger / I only wish I had the strength to let it show
05. Avenue Q – There’s a Fine, Fine Line
There's a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend / There's a fine, fine line between reality and pretend / And you never know 'til you reach the top if it was worth the uphill climb / There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time / There's a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie / And there's a fine, fine line between "You're wonderful" and "Goodbye." / I guess if someone doesn't love you back it isn't such a crime / But there's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of your time.
6. Deanna Carter – How Do I Get There From Here?
We've always been the best of friends / No secrets and no demands / But suddenly from somewhere out of the blue / I see a different light around you / One thing I haven't told you, I just want to hold you / And never let go, I need to know / How do I get there from here? / How do I make you see? / How do I tell you what my heart's been tellin' me? / Lost in you lovin' arms that's where I wanna be / You know I love you / How do I get there?
7. Billy Joel – This Night
Didn't I say I wasn't ready for a romance? / Didn't we promise we would only be friends / And so we danced though it was only a slow dance / I started breaking my promises right there and then / Didn't I swear there would be no complications? / Didn't you want someone who's seen it all before / Now that you're here it's not the same situation / Suddenly I don't remember the rules anymore
8. Mariah Carey – I’ve Been Thinking About You
We've known each other / For a long long time / But I never really noticed / All the magic in your eyes / I've been around you / A thousand times before / And you've always been a friend to me / But now I'm wanting more / I must have been so blind / I never realized / You're the one that's right for me
9. Moldy Peaches – Anyone Else But You.
You're a part time lover and a full time friend / The monkey on your back is the latest trend / I don't see what anyone can see in anyone else...but you / I'll kiss you on the brain in the shadow of the train / I'll kiss you all starry eyed my body swingin' from side to side / I don't see what anyone can see in anyone else...but you / Here is the church and here is the steeple / We sure are cute for two ugly people / I don't see what anyone can see in anyone else...but you
10. Beauty & The Beast – Something There
New and a bit alarming / Who'd have ever thought that this could be? / True that he's no Prince Charming / But there's something in him that I simply didn't see before
11. Avenue Q – Mix Tape
He likes me / I think he likes me / Does does he 'like me' like me, like I like him? / Will we be friends / Or something more? / I think he's interested, / But I'm not sure /
12. Dionne Warwick & Johnny Mathis – Friends in Love
Friends in love / Sometimes, lonely nights turn into sunny days / I never thought I’d feel this way, I never knew / That you and I were meant to be in love / Oh darling, you’ve always been around to see me through / How was I to know you make my dreams come true? / Time and time again we fall, always on our own / But now we’re friends in love / Hoping that we always will be friends in love / Strong when we’re together / Darling now we’ve got forever and a day / Don’t you go away.
13. Tim McGraw – My Best Friend
You’re more than a lover / There could never be another / To make me feel the way you do / Oh we just get closer / I fall in love all over / Every time I look at you / I don’t know where I’d be / Without you here with me / Life with you makes perfect sense / You’re my best friend / You’re my best friend, oh yeah
14. Paul Baribaeu – Falling in Love with your Best Friend
Last summer I was living down in Bloomington / it had been so long since I felt young / maybe I was just running away / as if it's just a bad thing to try and make my life better / I heard a song once / about falling in love with your best friend / I'd give about anything to hear that song again
15. ABC – All of my Heart
Once upon a time when we were friends / I gave you my heart. the story ends / No happy ever after, now were friends / Wish upon a star if that might help / The stars collide if you decide / Wish upon a star if that might help
16. Journey – Why Can't This Night Go On Forever?
Lost in twilight, the memories / Precious moments, you and me / We've been old friends, all through the years / Picture postcards, sharing tears / What's in our hearts, there's never time, to say / Need you tonight, lover don't fade away / I've seen your city lights / As I walk away / Why can't this night...go on forever
17. Melissa Etheridge – Angels Would Fall
So I'll come by and see you again / I'll be such a very good friend / Have mercy on my soul / I will never let you know / Where my mind has been / Angels never came down / There's no one here they want to hang around / But if they knew / If they knew you at all / Then one by one the angels / Angels would fall
18. Todd Rundgren - Can We Still Be Friends?
Let's admit we made a mistake / But can we still be friends / Heartbreak's never easy to take / But can we still be friends / It's a strange, sad affair / Sometimes seems like we just don't care / Don't waste time feeling hurt / We've been through hell together
19. The Commodores – Still
So many dreams that flew away / So many words we didn't say / Two people lost in a storm / Where did we go? / Where'd we go? / We lost what we both had found / You know we let each other down / But then most of all / I Do Love You / Still!
20. The Counting Crows - Accidentally in Love
So she said what's the problem baby? / What's the problem I don't know / Well, maybe I'm in love / Think about it every time / I think about it / Can't stop thinking 'bout it / How much longer will it take to cure this? / Just to cure it cause I can't ignore it if it's love / Makes me wanna turn around and face me but I don't know nothing 'bout love
