Then the next phase of the chorus assures us that the waves that crash into us are only for a time and that we will find the calm and peace we desire when walking through our lives.
A very bad storm today.
And all of the thunder in your skies can lead to a rainbow come what may.
Cuz I’ve been through the tears today.
When all of the anger falls away, there’s only the love that we began with.
Then we’re left feeling serene as a chorus of soothing harmonies shows us the beauty of what can happen when we let the pain fall away and just let the bond of friendship lead us through our lives.
The song ends on a lingering note, a repeating cadence of:
With that, the pain is forever a memory, a pinprick in our sides to allow someone with soothing hands to heal us.
With the music providing a softness that ebbs and flows as the soft caresses of a lover or close friend, “Very Good Friends” is a love note to the healing powers of friendship. Even when you think that your friends have grown apart from you, there’s always the memory of the love that bonded you to them and they to you so strongly. Hold on to those lasting memories and remember that despite the absence, despite the pain, there’s still a sunny sky and a warm smile that connects you to another.
