    Here are some friendship songs and non-love songs that might work:

    Count On Me - Bruno Mars

    You’ve Got a Friend - Carole King

    With a Little Help from My Friends - Lennon & McCarney

    You’ve Got a Friend in Me - Randy Newman

    Don’t Worry Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin

    House on Poo Corner - Kenny Loggins

    Jennifer’s Rabbit - Tom Paxton

    The Rainbow Connection - Paul Williams

    Feeling Good - Nina Simone

    Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head - BJ Thomas

    Sing - The Carpenters

    Happy - Pharrel Williams

    Sandwiches - Bob King

    Anyone Else But You - Moldy Peaches

    well...I think you need to first access your friend and make some choices based on his/her personality. All the aforementioned songs in this thread are nice in a generic kind of way, but I would think you would be shooting for something more than generic--something more personal. For example, if you were going to be singing and playing for my edification and you trotted out a four chord song, I would be less than enthusiastic. Of course, I would be polite and acknowledge the effort you put into a 1645 progression for me, but I would be a little more into it if you included a few stacked chords like an add9 or some dominant chords such as a 7sus2. But that's just me. And that's my point. You need to play to your audience.

    Interesting choice. "Why she had to go, I don't know, she wouldn't say. I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday."

    I'm not sure what message you're hoping to convey since you're just friends, but how about I'll Be There.

    Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
    Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
    Whenever you need me, I'll be there
    I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love I respect you
    Just call my name and I'll be there

    Anyone got any ideas to help me out?

    Yes, "500 Miles" is a popular song in our group. I would go with that. Valentine's Day can be tricky, though. Is she a friend or a "Friend." Getting it wrong can cause trouble.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Well, if you want that "just friend" to be more, how about Jim Croce's "I have to say I love you in a song"

    I think I'll do that. She is just a friend.

    500 miles it is.
