"Friends Don't Let Friends Dial Drunk" as written by Tom Higgenson, Kraig Tyler and Bret Mazur....
Those are all very beautiful words
But actions speak louder
In case you haven't heard, I'm all alone
While you're out on the town drinkin' with your friends
You can say all these beautiful things
But they don't mean nothing
No, they don't mean a thing
Gotta back it up
But you keep backing down
Tell me how this ends

If you think it's possible then anything is possible
But I think you're impossible
I hope you prove me wrong

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

Same old thing happens every night
You get me going, and then you say goodbye
I'm heated up
And you just leave me there to take care of myself
Don't get mad, don't get all wound up
Just get your act together, or baby give it up
Just let me know if I should hit the road or if you want my help

If you think it's possible then anything is possible
But I think you're impossible
I hope you prove me wrong

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know
You only call me when there's no one around
You only wanna come up when you know I'm going down
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

You gotta show me you mean it, if you really mean it
You're talking to me like you mean it, and I don't believe it

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know
You only call me when there's no one around
You only wanna come up when you know I'm going down
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

You only call me after you've had a few (oh oh oh)
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do (oh oh oh)
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

    General Commentsometimes life is like this...you love someone so much but they dont return the love to you. I read a quote somewhere and it said the longest lasting love is the love that isnt returned...hmmmmm. maybe it is.. sometimes you will always remember the love for one, but it really hurts when it isnt returned, and sometimes you just can't let go....

    thinking what if...

    General Commentit's kind of like that song "call me when your sober" by evanesence. because, he is talking about how she only talks to him when shes had drinks. and only hangout with him when shes bored.

    and it's really sad. because, it just shows you how their are some big assholes in this world that use people and don't have a heart. and how all the innocent people unfortunetly fall for it and get their hearts stomped on and broken... ='[

    General CommentLove this song. Especially the line "If you think it's possible then anything is possible, but I think you're impossible I hope you prove me wrong".

    Basically, to me at least, it sounds like there's a girl but she's just playing with his emotions and leading him on. She doesn't really, really like him, she just likes playing with his heart. Pretty simple really...

    General Commentthis is the exact situation i am in

    its like you and this guy have a thing and you really like him but dont truley trust him cause it seems like the times he like you most when he's bored or drunk or high and you get so sick of the same thing happening again and you just want him to be like i love you or i dont but you cant do anything cause you liek him so much you cant leave him

    General Commento.k. I have a question...
    What does he mean by "Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't"?

    Does he mean: DON'T tell me you love me AND act like you don't (love me)
    --or--
    Does he mean: Don't TELL ME YOU LOVE ME and ACT LIKE YOU DON'T

    I think it's the second, but I would like a second opinion, please!

    General Commenti think hes saying something like not to lie to him and say that she loves him and then treat him like nothing. dont play games.

    and does anyone know of a song about a friend who betrayed another friend and he found out that they were in reality not friends but one was just using the other?
