If you want to be my friend
You want us to get along
Please do not expect me to
Wrap it up and keep it there
The observation I am doing could
Easily be understood
As cynical demeanor
But one of us misread

And what do you know
It happened again

A friend is not a means
You utilize to get somewhere
Somehow I didn't notice
Friendship is an end
What do you know
It happened again

How come no-one told me
All throughout history
The loneliest people
Were the ones who always spoke the truth
The ones who made a difference
By withstanding the indifference
I guess it's up to me now
Should I take that risk or just smile?

What do you know
It happened again
What do you know

    General CommentI totally agree with josephRaymond. I think the song is about a person who is too honest for their own good and so people don't understand them. They misread the things they say. When they feel that a person is using them, they let it be known that that's how they feel. If there is something about their friend that bothers them, they can't be expected to just forget about it and leave it there, they're going to try and do something about it. But, in the end, this kind of behavior can backfire and in the end the person can be left with no friends, bcuz even when he tries to behave himself, "what do u know, it happened again". So, should he just paste a smile on his face and try to forget about the things that bother him about people? Or should he continue to be honest and only keep the people in his life that don't misread the things he says?
