"Not My Friend" as written by and Norah Jones....
Help me breathe
Help me believe
You seem really glad that I am sad

You are not my friend
I cannot pretend that you are

You made it sting
Your voice is ringing
Just like the boys who laughed at me in school

You are not my friend
I cannot pretend anymore

You found a place
No one should ever go

I'll be okay
'Cause when I back away
I'm gonna keep the handle of your gun in sight

    General Commentok, how does this song have no comments on it? seriously.

    i received an email the other day from an ex in which he refered to me as a friend. which is really funny because we haven't spoken in over a year. i'm pretty sure friends speak to one another.

    and this song reminded me of him the first time i heard it, and it still does. it still stings.

    and i'm still under his gun.
