Deer Tick - Just Friends Lyrics




When you stare from across the room
I can't tell if you're looking at me
Or just looking through

The others celebrate the end of the work week
But it's Tuesday for me and you
To say that we're just friends would never do us justice
We're a couple of gems
Swept into the dust bin

When you pay your respects to the past
I can't tell if it's a nervous laugh
And you think we could have made it last

The others frail and they cut of their tails
Their dreams dance to death in their glass
We're more than just dreamers when we ourselves believe it
We have the rest of our lives
Just gotta reach out and steal it

You're sending me up the river
I can't seem to remember
That you said he just needed a friend
Just a friend

When you speak are you holding back?
It's all I've asked between now and the past
I'd love to hear you answer that

They'll turn on the lights and we'll say our good nights
Though they're not good enough to last
While I'm tossing and turning, is your love burning, or have we layed it to rest?
Are we really just friends?
Are we really just friends?

    When you stare from across the room
    I can't tell if you're looking at me
    Or just looking through
    The others celebrate the end of the work week
    But it's Tuesday for me and you
    To say that we're just friends would never do us justice
    We're a couple of gems
    Swept into the dustbin
    Oh, when you pay your respects to the past
    I can't tell if it's a nervous laugh
    And you think we could have made it last
    The others frail and they cut of their tails
    Their dreams dance to death in their glass
    We're more than just dreamers when we ourselves believe it
    We have the rest of our lives
    Just gotta reach out and steal it
    Ooh-ooh, you're selling me up the river
    I can't seem to remember
    That you said you just needed a friend
    Just a friend
    When you speak are you holding back
    It's all I've asked between now and the past
    I'd love to hear you answer that
    They'll turn on the lights and we'll say our good nights
    Though they're not good enough to last
    While I'm tossin' and turnin', babe, is your love burnin'
    Or have we laid it to rest
    Are we really just friends
    Oh, are we really just friends
