Friends

I look into her eyes
She looks right through me
For something in the distance
For someone I want to be but I’ll never be
 
I tell her I love her
I tell her I want to be her man
She says, that’s sweet of you
But I’m someone hard to understand
 
I’m only your friend
Believe me we can never be more
One day we’ll hurt each other
And we’ll wish everything is like it was before
 
You and I are different
I don’t think we’ll be good together
Don’t tell me take a chance on us
If it doesn’t work out we’ll pay the price forever
 
What we have is great
Why do you want to risk it away?
Is it really worth it in the end?
When the so-called love disappears one day?
 
Take my hand in yours
This is us. This is me and you
Smile for the memories we share
Rejoice in knowing that this is pure and true
 
You’ll meet someone else
You’ll tell me how beautiful she is
How you met. How you fell for her
You’ll tell me all about your first kiss
 
You’ll invite me to your wedding
And I’ll be your guest of honor
I’ll wish you all the happiness of the world
Then kiss you and hug you to your wife’s horror
 
And one day hopefully
You’ll do the same thing for me too
Drive my husband crazy then
Hug me and kiss me like you always do
 
This is how it’s meant to be
Promise me that this is never going to end.
Promise me we’ll always stay this way
Promise me we’ll always be friends
