She's a Friend (3:57)
© 2003 Jason Paul Johnston

She's a friend - who's never turned me down
And always sticks around, but then again...
She's no saint, cause her favorite dress is a frown
And it turns my head right round, and keeps me in reign

If I could leave her I don't think I'd be screaming - like this
If I could say so long I would turn tail and run, but I can't

Cause she's a smother face blanket in the night
The comfort hand of death when I'm reaching for life
The voice from the dark as I ponder the ledge
But all that said, She's been a friend

She's a lover - who steals away my heart
And keeps me in the dark, and all my other friends distant
She's indifference, but it doesn't matter to me
Cause she holds me endlessly, in fact she's insistent

She's illusion - that's what all my friends say
But she's sits so close today, that I can feel her heart beat
It sounds like my pulse - so near to my own skin G
But it pumps, and growls and spins - and asks nothing of me
