這就是朋友相處之道

"That's what friends are for" 是 Dionne Warwick 的單曲, 與 Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight 合唱, 當時曾 Billboard 四週冠軍與 top 100 整年. (杜德偉&周華健後來也有唱)

這版本我很喜歡, 是 Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross & Whitney Houston 的超強組合, 1986 年 live 演出. 很少有人可在 whitney 之後接唱還沒被吃掉, luther 很猛. 喜歡那時候的表演, 沒有華麗聲光, 服裝, 舞群, 只有音樂

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you
And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
  to feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

*Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
A so by the way I thank you
And then for the times when we're apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember

從沒想過我會有這樣的感覺
對我來說
我很高興自己能有機會說:
我確定自己真的愛你
如果我必須離去
那麼,閉上你的雙眼
試著感受我倆今天所做的
然後,如果你還記得 ..........

保持你的笑容,光彩煥發
請你相信,你永遠都可以倚靠我
那就是朋友相處之道
不論是歡樂時光或是苦難的時刻
我永遠都在你左右
那就是朋友的好處

你來到我身邊,啟發了我
如今,我比以往看得更多
因此,我要順便向你道謝
在我們分開的日子裡
閉上你的眼睛,請你明白
這些都是我的肺腑之言
然後,如果你還記得 ..........
