One thing leads to another, better think before you talk
When it comes to hurting each other we learn to trip before we learn to walk
Words can be so detrimental, quick to hurt and slow to mend
So why can't we be friends?

Anyone can criticise things, anyone can break things down
It's not so easy to revive things, once it's dead it's hard to bring around
What about some words to build on, we all need them now and then
So why can't we be friends?

He can't help it cause he's ugly, she can't help the way she stares
Look at you, you're not so lovely, you look as though your face has been repaired
Let's start thinking of each other, we could start a whole new trend
So why can't we be friends?

People like to give me a hard time, put me up against the wall
I see them standing on the touchline waiting round to see me when I fall
Sorry if I disappoint you but that is not what I intend
So why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be friends?
Why can't we be...
