I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of tryin' to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

What is happening my friend?
You see I use the term so loosely these days
Seems we're headed towards the end
Soon to be parting our ways
Cuz' you've never done a thing for someone else
unless you thought that you could help yourself
And now the day is here when you have found
you finally need the help of someone else
But they won't help

Cuz' what you do, you know it's always just for you
So I don't care about you anymore

[Chorus]:
I don't wanna have to be your friend
I'm so tired of tryin' to be your friend
I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore
When it really doesn't matter what I say
Cuz' you're never gonna listen to me anyways
Well, I don't wanna have to be your friend, no anymore

It seems you've fallen once again
Like you've done a thousand times before
And now you need a certain friend, someone you can count on
But I don't wanna be the one who's always
gonna have to make it up to you
And I don't wanna be responsible for all the stupid little
things you say, and things you do

Cuz' what you did, it seems you've messed up once again
So I don't care about you anymore

(Repeat Chorus)

You call me late at night when things are not all right
You need someone to get you through again
You need a helping hand, someone who understands
You're begging and pleading but this time I'm not dealing

Cuz' I walked this road with you too many times before
And I realize now that this is not what I want anymore

(Repeat Chorus)

I don't wanna be your friend
No, I don't wanna be your friend

    General CommentThis song describes my feelings for certain "friends" of mine... some people just need to learn the meaning of loyalty.

    General CommentI can relate to this song. Some "friends" of mine try to make me be someone I'm not. They think that if I do drugs, or drink that all of my problems will go away. They've got it bad when it comes to that. They don't know anything else. I'm glad that I don't associate with any of them anymore. I can't even talk to one of them without them telling me what they've done. I'm just tired of it all. It's not worth it. It's never worth it.

    General CommentTHIS SONG REMINDS ME OF ISSUES THAT GO ON BETWEEN FRIENDS, ISSUES THAT i HAVE WATCHED GROW AND GROW. i JUST CAN NOT UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE CAN JUST THROW AWAY FRIENDSHIP. suRE YOU HAVE YOUR FIGHTS AND YOUR TIME APART, BUT ULTIMATELY IF SOMEONE MEANS SO MUCH TO YOU, YOU GOT TO WAKE UP AND NOT LET YOUR FRIEND GO. i REALY CAN NOT TOLERATE THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO JUST LET FRIENDS SLIP AND DON'T FIGHT, WHAT IS LIFE WITHOUT THE FIGHT, EVEN IF YOU ARE IN THE WRONG. sOMETIMES WE NEED TO BE HUMBLED... BUT THIS IS JUST A THOUGHT.

    General Commentomg i fucking love this song, i can totally relate to it. my ex-boyfriend broke up w/me cuz he claimed he was being depressed and didnt want to drag me down, so i'm like ok, but then he's like "but when we're better we'll get back together". he was so selfish and he still wants to be friends, but its hard, hes all "im not worth it dont wait for me" but then he's jealous when i'm with other guys...grrr it makes me mad. yeah so thats my life story. this song is cool. yes.
