"Can't Be Friends" as written by Mario Mendell Winans, Michael Carlos Jones, Tremaine Neverson, Troy Taylor, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Jaques Morelenbaum....
Look what this girl done did to me
She done cut me off from a good good love
She told me that those days where gone (gone, gone)

Now I'm sitting here goin' half crazy
'Cause I know she still thinks about me too
And it ain't no way in hell
That I can be just friends with you (you, you)

And I wish we never did it
And I wish we never loved it
And I wish I never fell so deep in love with you
And now it ain't no way we can be friends

The way it felt no fakin' it
Maybe we were movin' just a little too fast
But what we've done we can't take it back (back, back)

Now I'm sitting here halfway crazy
'Cause I know she still thinks about me too
And it ain't no way in hell
That I can be just friends with you

And I wish we never did it
And I wish we never loved it
And I wish I never fell so deep in love with you
And now it ain't no way we can be friends

And all I can say is
La la la la la la la (la)
La la la la la la la la la (la la la ooh)
La la la la la la la (hey)
Ain't no tellin' what we could have been
Ain't no tellin' what we could have been, no

And if I knew it ends like this
I never would have kissed you
Cause I fell in love with you
We never would have kicked it
Girl now every things different
I've lost my only lover and my friend
That's why I wish we never did it
Ooh yea

And I wish we never loved it (I wish we'd never loved it)
And I wish I never fell so deep in love with you
And now it ain't no way we can be friends
(we can't be friends)

La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la

    General CommentI love this song(:
    pretty self-explanatory.
    "just friends" to "together" to "apart" to "nothing"
    so sad ):
    but so easy to relate to.
    a good tear-jerker when you just need to mourn a breakup.

    My InterpretationI love this song.. And it's pretty easy to interpret. It's about a guy who can't get over this girl (his ex).. And that he can't be friends with after everything that happened between them. So sad :( I can so relate to this!!!

    General CommentAgree with ohsosweet, it's about two people who were "just friends" in the beginning, then one day, moved on to something more, and now at this point, she doesn't want to be with him like that anymore, and is asking him to go back to being friends again, and he's saying it's impossible because now he's in love with her.
