lyrics

A FRIEND

We cry like kids just the same
No one taking the blame
You only stayed for the night
You only came for the fight
Like a desperate claw
At the jugular vein
I only told you to stop
You only came back again
Whenever someone you lose
Is something you have to choose
There’s a depth to the pain
And the same of regret
It feels just like a wound
Another childish bruise
Just like the other ones
You won’t forget

Tell me tell me
Sweet dreams are never enough
You think you’ve made the connection
But you’re making it up
Another failed attempt
At something you believe
Another shot in the dark
And one more hole in the heart
The last time again
You promise this is the end
The reel is out for the fish
Cool water welcomes you in
You’re right to stay on your feet
Just about to get in
Cautious to begin
Cautious again

And when I’m alone you are my only friend
And I remember again how you were on my side
Coz as time goes by you’re still a friend of mine
You’re still a friend of mine
