lyrics

FRIEND OF MINE
I never was quite ready for the first cold word to land
It was quite a shock when I heard myself let go
He’s always hanging around here
Looking for some helpless soul where he can grow

But he never was a friend to me and I don’t mind

I never was quite fond of winter nights stretched out too long
I’m getting too familiar with the dark now
I guess I know him well enough
To tell when he’s gonna sink a fang in me

I was never worth much ‘til the day that I found you
And my efforts to keep you only make me act a fool
It might not be flattering but I know that it’s the truth
So come on babe, make my day

But he never was a friend to me
And he never even tried to be no friend of mine

I never was quite ready for those first dead leaves to land
It was quite a shock when I couldn’t let you go
