"Good Friend" as written by and Gordon Gano....
If only you could know
How I'd love you so
The way good friends do
The way I would be you
And me too, I'd be your
Good friend, I'd be your
Good friend, I'd be your
Good friend
That's what I would've been
Oh but everytime I turn around
My heart's on the mend
These feelings I have
I have to suspend
Seems like everytime I turn around
My heart's on the mend
Because I don't think you want me
To be your good friend
Yesterday is a laugh
And the traumas slip past
And I don't think
That I'll be doing a lot of crying
But I'll sure do my share of sighing
I would have been your

    General CommentThis song is so true. About a guy that loves this girl, but has to settle for being just her good friend, but it sometimes seems like she doesnt even want to be his friend.

    General CommentThe girl plays the game though... not sure she wants intimacy but doesn’t want the boy to go far... It's a highwire act... the friendships just a cover... no one ever wins...

    My InterpretationFrom what I can tell, this has nothing to do with romantic relationships. This is about friendship.
