"Friends" as written by and Jerry Holland....
You say you want to be friends
That's a newly sharpened blade
That's a dagger to the heart
Of the promises we made

That's a chapter full of pain
A season full of rain
A dark and stormy night
Spent all alone

Friends
Get scattered by the wind
Tossed upon the waves
Lost for years on end

Friends
Slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you

Now and then
But you want to be
Just friends

You say you love me very much
And you'll always hold me dear
Those are the sweetest words

I never want to hear
What's a love without desire
A flame without a fire
Can't warm me late at night
When I need you most

Friends
Get scattered by the wind
Tossed upon the waves
Lost for years on end

Friends
Slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you

Now and then
But you want to be
Just friends

Friends
Slowly drift apart
They give away their hearts
Maybe call you

Now and then
Darling can't you see
This is killing me
We could never be
Just friends

    General CommentThis song rings sooo true... I dont see how ppl can say that you will be friends after a relationship bc eventually you will grow apart bc the spark is no longer there

    General CommentIt doesn't even have to be after a relationship, some times one person just feels more than the other... You stay in touch for a while, but if you really like the person, it damn near kills you to be so close to them, but not really there.

    General CommentPainful song but so true. Why is it that feelings aren't always mutual? It seems as if you cared enough about someone you could be just friends.
