"Thursday" as written by and Irvin/haber Graham....
Well it started out just like a dream
And like a dream I knew
That what we had would have to end
'Cause I was looking for a life-time lover
And you were looking for a friend

Someone to be there
After all your nighttime lovers had gone
The way they came
Someone who knew the way
To help you play
Your daytime game
It's not the same

Well, I started out pretending
That I ought to mean enough to you
To make you want to change
Then I came to realize
That there was just too much of you
You had to rearrange

And I couldn't bear to wait around
For all your nighttime lovers to go
The way they came
And it came to hurt too much for me
To have to play your daytime games
No one to blame

It started out just like a dream
And like a dream I knew
That what we had had to end
'Cause I was looking for a life-time lover
And you were looking for a friend

I was looking for a life-time lover
And you were looking for a friend

    General CommentI JUST came out of a situation like this, except she wasn't playing me, but it did end up just being my dream. And she was looking for a lover, too, but she found that lover somewhere else. So now I remain her friend. Well it just happened to me, so its fresh on my mind, but I can relate to this song, actually most of Croce's love songs touch me in this way.
    Forgive my rambling, lol
