I got a message from you last night on the phone
You said you're missing me and I should call you
And after all the things we've been through, in the end
I can't believe that we can't do what friends do

And I'm here
To tell you
I never broke my promise to you
No fear
No pressure
On you

But if we are just friends
Then how come I'm crying?
You laugh
While inside I'm dying
Pretend
For your sake I'm lying
Be strong
You know that I'm trying/ to let you go free
If that's what you need from me
Oh, we are, we are, we are, we are just friends

I still remember how you looked at me that way
Like I was everything you ever wanted
I didn't mean to let you down the way I did
Darkness descended and we just can't stop it

And you're here
To remind me
Of the things I said I would do
Don't you worry, my dear
I'm right here
For you

But if we are just friends
Then how come I'm crying?
You laugh
While inside I'm dying
Pretend
For your sake I'm lying
Be strong
You know that I'm trying/ To let you go free
If that's what you need from me
Oh, we are, we are, we are, we are just friends

I'm trying to let you go free
If that's what you need from me
To let you go free
If that's what you need from me
Oh we are, we are, we are, we are just friends
