Friends Lyrics
Ohhhhhhh yeahhhh

What is a friend?
Could it be that it's just a word,
Or something in your life that you heard.
Or just another one of those big fat lies,
Cuz many nights this word has made me cry so hard my stomach hurts deep down inside.

[Chorus:]
Uh-Oh there goes that word again
(there it goes again)
How do we let it end
I thought you were my friend
(I swear I thought you were my friend)
I can't believe my very eyes
(I can't believe it)
Right to my face you lied (ohh)
Cuz you're my so-called friend

How could you call yourself a friend,
Uh-oh there goes that word again
That brings people together and tears them apart,
It's always said by those who claim they love you, but all the while they wanna fill your shoes,
And never calling you up with no good news (ohhhh)

[Bridge 1:]
They're always happy when you lose (yeah)
They never want the best for you (never, never)
They always want to fit your shoes (I don't understand this kind of friend ya'll listen)

[Chorus:]
Uh-Oh there goes that word again (uh-oh, uh-oh)
How do we let it end (how do we let it end)
I thought you were my friend (I thought you were my friend yeah)
I can't believe my very eyes (I can't believe my very eyes)
Right to my face you lied (ohhh right to my face you lied)
Cuz you're my so-called friend (yeahhhhh)

[Bridge 2:]
Opportunities knock and here comes my friend (uh-oh there goes that word again)
They only come around when they need something ya'll listen hear, listen hear
They call you everyday til they grill you (everyday)
My thoughts to hang out so you can spend on them (I don't understand, I don't understand this kind of friend heeey yeahhhh)

[Chorus]

[Repeat til fade]
