"Hard Times" as written by and Fredrik/farm Larsson....
When you are winning,
when you are winning I'm with you.
I'm sun and springing, yeah,
sun and springings what I do.
And I'm your best friend,
I'm your best friend, I pretend,
just like a new trend.
You know this friendship will soon end.

Cause when the hard times are coming
my true colors show.
And what I give you is nothing,
I say you're on your own.
Cause when the hard times are coming,
I'm the first to run.
So for the hard times,
you know you're on your own.

You made a bad stroke.
You made a bad stroke you should have known,
cause I'm all for smalltalk.
If you want smalltalk then pick up the phone
and I'll be your best friend.
Well, at least now for a little while,
but don't go around the bend,
cause I can only stand you when you smile.

Cause when the hard times are coming
my true colors show.
And what I give you is nothing,
I say you're on your own.
Cause when the hard times are coming,
I'm the first to run.
So for the hard times,
you know you're on your own.
Just like a sinking stone.

A friend in need is a friend indeed
that's what I've been told,
but a friend in me lacks that heart of gold.

    General CommentThis song is about a friend who will be there with you sharing the good times but when the bad times he goes because he can't take it.
    He pretends to be their best friend for a little while but he knows that something bad will happen sooner or later and they're going to want to rely on him when he's not reliable. I love this song

    General CommentI like this song but I'd like it better if I knew that his friend was a real twat and deserved to have a friend who didn't really care. Love it all the same.

    MemoryThe doubtful pleasure of having friends like this happened to me at least three times. Now I know I can count only on myself.
