lyrics

Lifelong Friends

Don't you know she's alone?
Absence of love almost crushed her soul
Don't you know she's alone?
Not being touched always hurt her so
All depression - anti depression
It lifts her then drops her
Where's her release?
Where's her joy?

All the time lonely nights
And he would call, Hey baby let's grab a bite
All the time lonely nights
With a man who is cute and bright

Ouch idle all day
You and her a couple of guys
Don't - you will be sure
Did she finally find her mate?

Don't you know that she would always be your friend?
Through thick and thin you had a friend
All the years you thought that she would leave you then
You had a friend - you have a friend- oh!

All depression - anti depression
It lifts her then drops her
Where's her release?
Where's her joy?

She would push him away
And sort of sour her chance that she's gay
She would push him away
Maybe you fixed up their crummy date

Ouch idle all day
You and her a couple of guys
Don't - you will be sure
Did she finally find a mate?

She would dream of your touch
A chump with a beer gut couldn't give her much
And she would dream of the rest
With soft hands holding her caressed

Don't you know that she would always be your friend?
Through thick and thin you had a friend
All the years you thought she only wanted men
You had a friend - she would be bi

All she knows she didn't want to be just friends
Yet you thought that she just wanted him
All the years you thought she wouldn't be your friend
She wanted you
You had a friend
