She Loves Me - Dear Friend Lyrics

2016 Broadway revival
She Loves Me the Musical - Dear Friend Lyrics


"Dear Friend" is a song from Broadway musical SHE LOVES ME performed by Laura Benanti as Amalia. The song is written by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock.

The flowers, the linen, the crystal I see
Were carefully chosen for people like me.
The silver agleam and the candles aglow...your favorite songs on request.

Each colorful touch in the finest of taste,
and notice how subtly the tables are spaced.
The music is muted, the lighting is low; no wonder I feel so depressed.

Charming, romantic, the perfect cafe
Then as if it isn't bad enough a violin starts to play
Candles and wine, tables for two, but where are you dear friend?

Couples go past me, I see how they look.
So discreetly sympathetic when they see the rose and the book.
I make believe nothing is wrong, how long can I pretend?
Please make it right, don't break my heart, don't let it end, dear friend.

I make believe nothing is wrong, how long can I pretend?
Please it right, don't break my heart, don't let it end, dear friend.
