"January Friend" as written by and Robbie Takac....
Reach
For higher ground
About the way you look
The way you scream out loud

Mine
Just like the last time
It's all the same to me
She said

Let's pretend
My January friend
I'm wanting you again
I wanna touch ya
Every single heart that beats pretend
My January friend
I'm wanting you again
I wanna touch ya
Every single heart that beats

Cry
Don't cry out loud
You've gotta bear your cross but never dream too loud
And you're tied
Tied to the next time
You realize
Your crimes

Let's pretend
My January friend
I'm wanting you again
I wanna touch ya
Every single heart that beats pretend
My January friend
I'm wanting you again
I wanna touch ya
Every single heart that beats

Time stood still Monday morning, yeah
Showed me what I had to see
It's not the way I thought it to be, oh yeah

You're my January friend
You're my January friend
You're my January friend
And every heart that beats pretend
My January friend
You're my January friend
You're my January friend
You're my January friend
And every heart that beats tonight's pretend

    General CommentOMGosh, i guess no one else thinks this is good enough to comment on! i'm not entirely sure, but i heard this song is about a girl that this guy could only get along with around a certain time, and that's why "every heart that beats tonight's pretend"

    General CommentI love this song to and I think that it is about a guy and a girl who's relationship is on the girls terms. She calls him her January friend to show how she only comes around once in a while when it is good for her. Or something like that....please feel free to add to this....

    General CommentThis song is great, but nobody gives Robbie any credit as a songwriter, but he is an awsome songwriter.

    General CommentI agree with fuckyouall, but then again i'm one of the odd ones who likes Robby over Johnny. I always used to think it was about a girl who just used a guy for certain things but blew him off except when she wanted something, and that was the only time she was ever decent to him.

    General CommentI am too, his voice is cooler, his best song is "Tucked Away" off of the new "GutterFlower" album.
