These Song Lyrics About Besties Are The Perfect National Friendship Day Instagram Captions


If you weren't already planning to hang out with your friends this weekend, you might want to call them and set something up. National Friendship Day falls on Sunday, August 5, and it's perfect opportunity to do something fun with the people you're closest to. It's also great timing: a summer Sunday is the best day to get together with your friends, whether you're heading to brunch, going out for a beach day, sipping on some wine at a vineyard, or just hanging out in someone's backyard. And if you can't be together in person, then you can at least celebrate your friends on social media. This, of course, means posting a photo with them to show them off to the world. You can bring your post to the next level with some best friend song lyric Instagram captions to post on National Friendship Day.

After all, sometimes the best way to express your thoughts and feelings is through music. Musicians can usually word things better than the rest of us can, so using song lyrics to show how you feel is definitely understandable. It's even better if the lyrics come from a song that you and your friends all love together, or a song that really means something to you guys. Of course, the lyrics don't have to have a special meaning either.

There are tons of songs about friendship out there, and all of them offer up some great lines that could be perfect for an Instagram picture. Feel free to use any of the options below on National Friendship Day:
