"I Couldn't Be Your Friend" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
Does your heart ache when you get around me?
Does your heart break when you think about me?
Now you wanna say, I was a liar
Led you astray, I won’t deny it
I did what they thought would be good for me
Now you wanna cry, call me a cheater
Left you to die, though I did neither
Thought that it would, that it would be best for me

Do you cry? Oh, do your worst
Do you talk? Oh do your worst
I couldn’t be your friend even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)
Try to conceal it, I won’t believe it
Even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)

Does your body shake when you get around me?
Does your body wake when you think about me?
Now you wanna say, I was a criminal
Stole you away, that sounds so fictional
I did what they thought would be good for me

Do you cry? Oh, do your worst
Do you talk? Oh do your worst
I couldn’t be your friend even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)
Try to conceal it, I won’t believe it
Even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)

Now you wanna say you had it all wrong
Now you wanna say you had me all wrong
Now you wanna say you had it all wrong
Now you wanna say you had me all wrong

I couldn’t be your friend even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)
Try to conceal it, I won’t believe it
Even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)
Try to conceal it, I won’t believe it
Even if I tried again
I couldn’t be your friend (Wouldn’t be your friend)

Couldn’t be your friend

    My Interpretation"Does your heart ache when you get around me?
    Does your heart break when you think about me?

    Does your body shake when you get around me?
    Does your body wake when you think about me?"

    Gahhhh, this song breaks my heart :( Makes me think about my best friend, who I have strong feelings for... but I'm fairly sure that she doesn't feel the same way.

    My InterpretationIt sounds like the speaker is telling someone (they don't make it clear the relationship but, it could be a lover or friend) that their relationship is over. No matter what either one of them may try, it's not going to work.

    General Commentokay personal thoughts from loving this song and feeling this way.
    she finds out a girl maybe isnt best for her and so she breaks up with the girl.
    she still wants to be with her but has been warned alot by other friends.
    then the girl turns around and saysshes straight because i guess she is obviously hurt.
    she starts to get angry and says alot of things out of spite.
    and she couldnt be her friend because she will always have feelings for that person and if they were"just friends" it would probally really f**kin hurt inside and b.s.
    -love haz nogender interpertation.
