    Pete Townshend, "A Friend is a Friend". He wrote it for a musical inspired by The Iron Man, the same book that was the basis of the movie "The Iron Giant". It should have shown up for you in a youtube video in the post above, are you able to see other embedded yt videos?

    Posting the lyrics, now that's a thought!

    I don't think I've ever had this type of friend before. Maybe one but he's lives far away now and we don't chat much anymore aside from the occasional facebook update. "To the death, to the end", someone you trust enough to "deliver your future"? Sounds like a great (and rare) thing.

    ----------

    When eyes meet in silence
    A pact can be made
    A life-long alliance
    That won't be betrayed

    Be friendly, befriend me now

    A friend is a friend
    Nothing can change that
    Arguments, squabbles
    Can't break the contract
    That each of you makes
    To the death, to the end
    Deliver your future
    Into the hands of your friend

    Be friendly, befriend me now

    A promise is a promise
    A handshake will seal it
    No amount of discussion
    Can ever repeal it
    Commitment forever
    To borrow or lend
    Deliver your future
    Into the hands of your friend

    When eyes meet in silence
    A pact can be made
    A life-long alliance
    That won't be betrayed
    You need a mate
    When facing the end
    What is the fate
    Now facing my friend?
    Facing my friend
    What faces my friend?

    A friend is a friend
    Nothing can change that
    Arguments, squabbles
    Can't break the contract
    That each of you makes
    To the death, to the end
    Deliver your future
    Into the hands of your friend

    Be friendly, befriend me now
