lyrics

Some friends I was torn from abruptly
Some friends we just drifted apart
And I can feel the bonds between us straining
You know it’s slowly breaking my heart.

Remember how we felt this time last year?
What happened to those people we were?
I remember your laughter distinctly
But recently it’s all been a blur.

And I don’t mean to be so maudlin, but it’s been muddlin’ up my mind,
And I’ve lost a share of friends to negligence in my time
So I thought I’d give a holler to say I care for you deeply
And that recently yeah I’ve been thinking you and me we’ll be fine.

Some groups of people they fracture
You know I’m pretty sure most of them will
It still really sucks to watch it happen
It’s just another jagged little pill.

Maybe I should have moved town again
Hell maybe someday I will
Start it all over with some brand new friends
Keep it up until somebody gets killed.

I didn’t plan to be so plaintive but it’s plain enough to see
When friendship outlasts affection it’s a cruel cacophony
So I thought I’d give a holler to say I care for you deeply
And that recently yeah I’ve been thinking you and me we’ll be fine.

And I’m sorry I’m not strong enough
And I’m sorry but even if I was
I’d be sorry
I ain’t forcing love.

Some friends I was torn from abruptly
Some friends I’ve kept close for years
Well it helps that you’re here and you’re lovely
And it hurts when I choke on my fears.

I don’t desire to be so doleful but I’ll be damned if I don’t sing
I sing thanks for your indulgence, in this and everything
So I thought I’d give a holler to say I care for you deeply
And that recently yeah I’ve been thinking you and me we’ll be fine.
