There were times when,
We were just like friends.
I couldn't love you,
I was afraid you'd break my heart.

Was I ever really close to you?
Superficial,
I'm sorry for crushing your heart.

Want to find some friends,
Someone who's there for you,
Someone who cares,
Someone who'd be true.

Who were you to me?
What were you to us?
A place we did not see,
Someone, you lied to me.

Seems like yesterday when,
We'd stay up writing dumb songs,
Except somethings haven't changed.

I can tell we've grown up now
Overcome with pressing anger
Your welcome back with open arms

Want to find some friends,
Someone who's there for you,
Someone who cares,
Someone who'd be true.

Who were you to me?
What were you to us?
A place we did not see,
Someone, you lied to me.

Where have good times gone?
They're still remaining.
They never really had a chance,
A chance to say I'm sorry.
If I had seen that you'd accept,
Let's wipe the slate clean.

The lesson has been learned,
Still there is something,
Have I seen a brighter day?
I think its safe to say,
That things are better,
I hope it stays this way.

Want to find some friends,
Someone who's there for you,
Someone who cares,
Someone who'd be true.

Who were you to me?
What were you to us?
A place we did not see,
Someone, you lied to...
