    "Sometimes late at night, I love to hear the silence.
    Take a deep breath and enjoy being alone.
    Other times I want the loneliness to leave.
    In a crowd full of happy people I'm alone.
    In a cold room by myself, I'm occupied with my thoughts.
    What do you do when the only person you can count on is yourself
    And you can't always depend on her?
    Words are spoken which make no sense.
    They make sense to him though.
    He speaks the same words.
    One and one don't make two.
    One and one make one.
    The world is more enjoyable when you someone to share it with.
    So when I sit in my room all alone
    I dream of the day when I will be one."

    "Why do we have friends? Friends are special people that care for you, they feel for you. You tell friends about your life and they tell you theirs. Why do we have friends? They are there for you when you make a bad decision or maybe even a good one. You tell each other secrets, hopefully they won't tell, but some things are meant to be told. Why do we have friends? Not to disclude or ignore. But to be there whenever they need you. Even if leave they will always be your friends. Why do we have friends? We have friends for the best memories person could have, we have friends to live, to fight, to cry and to face reality. We all have friends maybe we haven't found them yet or maybe you have. Who are your true friends?"
