"Friend" as written by and Erik Schrody....
There's a sickness in my soul
And I don't know but I been told it's incurable
There's a darkness in my heart
Slowly tearin' me apart, it's unbearable
Drop of blood, a lake of tears
And baby after all these years you're still beautiful
And I've been loved and I've been used
Cut wide open, scarred and bruised
I'm unbreakable

Flesh it heals I know
Hearts they never mend
Lover's come and go girl right now I need a friend

Walk for miles, talk for days
And I keep trying to change my ways
It's so difficult
You kick and scream
You curse and yell
Tell me I should go to hell
It's so typical
Touch my heart, feel my pain
Let me know I'm not insane
You're so merciful
Break your heart
I cheat, I lie
And honestly I don't know why I'm so pitiful

Flesh it heals I know
Hearts they never mend
Lover's come and go girl right now I need a friend...yeah

There's a sickness in my soul
And I don't know but I been told it's incurable
There's darkness in my heart, that's slowly tearin' me apart
It's unbearable...yeah

Flesh it heals I know
Hearts they never mend
Lovers come and go girl right now I need a friend...yeah

Right now I need a friend

There's a sickness in my soul
And I don't know but I been told it's incurable

    General CommentWhen this song played on my computer I instantly loved it.

    I think it's about having a friendship with a girl that has feelings for you, but as much as you do like her, she's not the girl. She's always there for you and you hate to hurt her, but when you say no it crushes her.

    Basically she want's a relationship but you just want a friend. Possibly your other relationships have left you afraid of being hurt. Maybe she means too much to you to let feelings destroy your friendship.

    General CommentWow, love this song.

    To me this is about two people that want to be in a relationship, but one of them has issues that they need to deal with first. This person needs a friend to help them get through it more than a relationship right now.
