And be there for you in times you lack
As well lighten your path when you happen to be in the dark
Like Noah did to his people on the ark?
But time now has taught me lessons I needed to learn
Indeed ‘not all that glitters is gold’
Some friends are like Lion in a den
Waiting to give their prey a rough hold
With you they may wine and dine
Pretending everything is fine
But wait until your star begins to shine
Then you’d know whose life’s on the line
With their Fangs
Your skin of fortune they gently pierce
To drain you of your blood of luck
In a friendly way disguisedly fierce
Until deeply in misfortune you’re stuck.
