ode to a friend lyrics – jann arden

i cherish this fond memory
it’s a gorgeous picture in my mind
swinging in the hammock out back
just me and you, sister
discussing our futures and what we will become

i remember the stars out that night
filtering down through the beautiful oak trees
but the light those stars provided
cannot compare to what shone from your eyes, sister
oh how i love your eyes!

they can pierce the darkest night
they could conquer the whole world without a fight
they harbor such great wisdom
and they tear my world apart

you’re a sister aptly named
my sister, faith
