lyrics

Why I Can't Be Your Friend

I'M STRETCHING OUT SLOWLY,
THE PLANET BELOW ME,
FEELS MORE LIKE HOME NOW,
I’M FALLING TOGETHER AND THOUGH I SEEM BETTER,
I'M STILL NOT… SOMEHOW,
FOR YOU IT’S ALL OVER ~ FOR ME IT WON’T END,
AND THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND OH NO,
THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND.

I’M BETTER AT LYING
TO FRIENDS WHO ARE PRYING
ABOUT MY WELFARE
THEY ALL WANT THE DETAILS
I KNOW THAT THEY MEAN WELL
BUT I CAN’T GO THERE.
YOUR CUTS ARE HEALING WHILE MINE NEVER MEND,
AND THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND,
THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND.

LOVE YOU - HATE YOU - WANT YOU… GONE,
GONE WITH THE MADNESS,
THE SILENCE AND SADNESS,
WHO WOULD I BE IF I SEE YOU AGAIN,
AND THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND.

I FINALLY OPENED
SOME DOORS THAT WERE BROKEN
THAT WE HAD SLAMMED SHUT.
I FINALLY REPAINTED THE COLORS THAT FADED
WHEN YOU LEFT HOME BUT
HEARTS THAT ARE BROKEN AREN’T EASY TO MEND
AND THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND,
THAT'S WHY I CAN'T BE YOUR FRIEND.
