What is 'For A Friend' about?

This song was written when Phil knew a very brave person who had died of AIDS. He didn't really know her very well, but had met her a few times before she died. Released as a b-side track from the "Both Sides" era, it has a lot of the elements in it lyrically that one would expect ...sadness, anger, love, and resentment at being the one left behind.
