"We Used To Be Friends" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose, Jon Lee and Courtney A. Taylor....
A long time ago
We used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again
A greeting I send to you
Short and sweet to the soul I intend

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Come on now, honey
Bring it on, bring it on yeah
Just remember me when
You're good to go

Come on now, sugar
Bring it on, bring it on yeah
Just remember me when

It's something I said
Or someone I know
Or you called me up
Maybe I wasn't home
Now everybody needs some time
And everybody knows
The rest of it's fine
And everybody knows, yeah

Come on now, sugar
Bring it on, bring it on yeah
Remember me when
You're good to go

Come on now, honey
Bring it on bring it on yeah
Just remember me when
We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends, yeah, yeah

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

A long time ago
We used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again
A greeting I send to you
Short and sweet to the soul I intend

We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends
A long time ago
We used to be friends

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

    General Commentbut I think with the repetition of "A long time ago, we used to be friends" there's still a bit of bitterness felt in the singer

    General CommentI don't really care if there are any mistakes in this, it's still a great song! It was featured on The O.C. once, which made the episode so much cooler. Go The O.C.! :)

    General Commenterinsemotears-Have you any clue how LAME it is to like a song less because of what it's been on? That's like people who love an indie band and then the same band gets onto a major label and they get a lot of exposure, but they still realese the same music and it's still amazing, but since other people know about it they suddenly switch gears and start badmouthing the band.

    General CommentI agree with the person above. I think this song is about two people and their friendship ended for some stupid reason.

    General CommentI noticed a few mistakes in the lyrics. In the first chorus, it's not "just love me when"; it's "just remember me when". And instead of "the rest of the lines in everybody else's show", it is "The rest of it's fine and everybody knows."
