Shouldn't leave a lover alone too long,
lover find another then the lover is gone.
Find yourself alone in the setting sun,
gonna take a couple years before the next dawn.

If your light is gone,
and my love is gone.

Lonesome leads to bitters and the bitters leads to pains
and the pains start bubbling from your heart to your brain.
Swear you'll never ever make her cry again-
tears start welling in her eye again.

she was your best friend,
but you did it again.
(and again).

And i know that you're tired of the drama,
know that you're tired of the strain,
know that you're tired of our love affair-
so honey, why don't we
just be friends?

well I'm the type of the guy with the wandering eye
had a couple drinks and I don't know why
every time I see another girl walk by
wandering eye starts to objectify, yeah

and I don't know why...
I'm a natural guy

Chains like little pendants are disguised as love.
We were smothered by the touching and the kissing and the hugs.
Guess now you know I'm not the marrying type,
don't want kids and I don't want a wife -
just a friend for life.
(not a typical life!)

And I know that you're tired of the drama,
know that you're tired of the strain,
know that you're tired of our love affair-
so honey, why don't we
just be friends?

Well, you shouldn't leave a lover alone too long,
lover find another then the lover is gone.
Find yourself alone in the setting sun,
gonna take a couple years before the next dawn.
