Tea and sympathy for a friend I used to keep
We would laugh along and waste time but now we never speak
And I knew there'd be a day when there was nothing more to say
And I know it's not my place but anyway
Now I've heard the one you're with has a temper and a fist
But every time you walk away you're walking back to him
So it goes
I just thought I'd let you know
I wish I could help you out but you gotta help yourself
Oh two things at the same time always out of your mind
How do you keep up
Now you've always been the same in your masochistic way
If you need someone to put you down I've got nothing to say
But now that it's all said and done I hope you like what you've become
Like mother like daughter it all comes back to you
So it goes
I just thought I'd let you know
I wish I could help you out but you gotta help yourself
Oh two things at the same time always out of your mind
How do you keep up
Over and after you'll run till you're captured
And over and after you'll run till you're captured again
So it goes
I just thought I'd let you know
I wish I could help you out but you gotta help yourself
Oh two things at the same time always out of your mind
How do you keep up

    General CommentI love this song. I used to have a friend exactly like this. We were really good friends, she started dating some guy and we had to stop being friends. Then they broke up and we started to have a little thing and he put her through hell. But she still took him back for some reason. He's a complete douche and seems bipolar. He doesn't know how to control his temper. I wish I could help her but since we don't talk anymore she's gonna have to help herself. So it goes.
