"What Are Friends For" as written by Aaron Barrett, Matt Wong, Scott Allen Klopfenstein, Dan Regan and Carlos F. Garza....
Guess what?
They found out about me
You can't count on me
I hate to be wrong
Guess what?
All those things I said
It wasn't what I meant
I hate to lead you on

I've got a lot of bad things I wish that I had never done
'Cause they're coming back, coming back to me now
And I've got a lot of bad things I wish that I had never done
'Cause they're coming back, coming back to me now
Oh yeah, I'm not your friend
You don't know me and I
I don't care about you

I lied
And that's the awful truth
Guess it was no use
I hate to be wrong
I lied
The things inside your head
Wishin' I was dead
'Cause I did you wrong

I've got a lot of bad things I wish that I had never done
'Cause they're coming back, coming back to me now
And don't think I'll feel guilty or that I'll apologize
'Cause I got my way, and that means I was right
Oh yeah, I'm not your friend
You don't know me and I
I don't care about you

I've got a lot of bad things I wish that I had never done
'Cause they're coming back, coming back to me now
And don't think I'll feel guilty or that I'll apologize
'Cause I got my way and that means I was right
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

I've got a lot of bad things I guess that I should never have done
'Cause they're coming back, coming back to me now
And don't think I'll feel guilty or that I'll apologize
'Cause I got my way and that means I was right
Oh yeah yeah, I'm not your friend
You don't know me and I
I don't, I don't care about you

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on Cheer Up. I love the lyrics too because it's interesting to listen to someone who's mature enough to admit their faults and mistakes, as opposed to emo bands who sing about why all their problems are the fault of other people, CONSTANTLY.

    General CommentIt's obviously about him cheating on his girlfriend and feeling bad about it. And, thinking about it makes him think about the other things he's done wrong.

    General CommentThis reminds me of when I used to screw around with this guy, I was basically a tease. I didn't like him at all, he annoyed me. I did it because I could. Then he started stalking me...

    General Commentthis is a great rbf song.
    i always want to just yell at some people the line "I’m not your friend, you don’t know me and I don’t, I don’t care about you."
    that would get some people to leave me alone
