Finneas - I Lost A Friend Lyrics




I lost a friend
Like keys in a sofa
Like a wallet in the backseat
Like ice in the summer heat

I lost a friend
Like sleep on a red-eye
Like money on a bad bet
Like time worrying about every bad thing that hasn't happened yet

I know I'll be alright
But I'm not tonight
I'll be lying awake counting all the mistakes I've made
Replaying fights
I know I'll be alright
But I'm not tonight

I lost a friend
I lost a friend
I lost my mind
And nobody believes me
Say, "I know that he don't need me,
'Cause he made a little too much money to be twenty and sad."
And I'll be fine without them
But all I do is write about 'em
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?
Never had

I'm on the mend
Like I'm wearing a neck brace
Like I'm sleeping in my own place
Like I'm pulling all the stitches out of my own face

I'm on the mend
Like I'm icing a new sprain
Like I'm walking on a new cane
Like it's been a couple days since I slipped and said something sorta like your name

I know I'll be alright
But I'm not tonight
I'll be lying awake counting all the mistakes I've made
Replaying fights
I know I'll be alright
But I'm not tonight

I'm on the mend
But I lost a friend
I lost my mind
And nobody believes me
Say, "I know that he don't need me,
'Cause he made a little too much money to be twenty and sad."
And I'll be fine without them
But all I do is write about 'em
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?

I'd apologize
If I thought it might
Make a difference
Or make you listen
I'd apologize
If it was black and white
But life is different
Just try to listen
To me now

I know I'll be alright
But I'm not tonight
I lost a friend
I lost a friend
I lost my mind
And nobody believes me
Say, "I know that he don't need me,
'Cause he made a little too much money to be twenty and sad."
And I'll be fine without them
But all I do is write about 'em
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?

Never had

Finneas I Lost A Friend Comments
  1. Omkar Gurav

    Why this song always touch my heart so much? Why I cry every time when finneas shout I lost a friend?

  2. Amy B

    I lost my best friend 3 years ago. We divorced after 27 years of marriage. You don’t just lose a lover, you also lose your best friend, at least I did.

  3. Sugar Brownie

    Finneas: I lost a friend
    Billie: Burry a friend

  4. Cloy d Ejukator

    Wait i think his friend is his heart ..wow great writing

  5. Jim Nixon

    Another video in 1 shot? The scope of this man's genius hasn't even been tapped.

  6. jakeyboy851

    This is an excellent song and video dude is hella underrated

  7. Chrissy12000

    I just wanna say I love the dancing in your videos

  8. sarah gaber

    What a beautiful lyrics ...
    This is the second song i hear to Finneas ... And again it's a great song .
    I liked him for his work with Billie and now i liked him even more for his own work ❤️❤️❤️

  9. Jimmy Wiegel

    This is so good

  10. Lucie Brémeault

    Suddenly, wild Billie Eilish appears.

  11. Enni Pukkinen

    Amazing

  12. Suga Jungkook

    According to finnean I alway lost a friend

  13. Cynthia Rosario

    We need more of you.

  14. Cynthia Rosario

    He had his own band before Billie but put his heart into helping her, and wow hes good too. He is so good. This song is gorgeous. We need more of him. And they both still live at home, where they lived before fame. Its such a humble sweet story. And apparently the house rule before they got so big was they could stay up late as long as they were working on music. They stayed up alot working on music. Their mom is a good loving humble mom herself. Their the old fashioned all american family. Rare.

  15. some random person on the internet

    FINNEAS IS SO UNDERRATED!!!!!

  16. Julia Walsh

    It's rare that I connect to somber songs, but this is one exception. Written from the heart and so honest and raw in its feeling, I felt less alone while listening.

  17. Amjath Barakathulla

    Dude, this is a great video! Amazing 💯

  18. Natalisya Simbolon

    this is a song that i can literally relate to

  19. Olivia Rachael

    Finneas and Billie need to sing a song together..... or album. It would be beautiful

  20. lucifer

    Wait is ferb okay ? What happen ? 😔

  21. lpsseaturtles

    I lost a friend this year. I had feelings for him and I ruined it all. I confessed to him and it didn't go well. I wish I never said anything because I miss him. I am afraid to tell anyone I have feelings for them now. I messed everything up. Well I am still trying to get through it but I am feeling a little better. Hope anyone who has lost a friend is doing good!🙂♥️

  22. Rabbit 1991

    How proud their parents must be ! Billie and Finneas 😍 two amazing badasses

  23. Rabbit 1991

    WOW ! FINNEAS DESERVES SO MUCH MORE FAME ❤

  24. Jaxyn Miller

    I love you finneas. I'd love to talk to you in this life.

  25. mizuhonova

    Finneas has crazy good lyrics. So much better than most of the pop songs out there today.

  26. I love billie Eilish

    Did anyone else noticed that the word “red eye” was used in both songs: “I love you” and “I lost a friend”

    Of course this is only if you know billie eilish, and the song ‘I love you’ Heres proof:

    Billie’s song lyrics to I love you:

    Up all night on another red eye
    I wish we never learned to fly
    I-I-I Maybe we should just try
    To tell ourselves a good lie
    I didn't mean to make you cry
    I-I-I


    Finneas’s song to I lost a friend:

    I lost a friend
    Like sleep on a red-eye Like money on a bad bet
    Like time worrying about
    Every bad thing that hasn't happened yet

  27. Marshal Unicorn

    i lost my best freind we fot way to much and he said lets not talk

  28. Oliver Chadley

    A relatable song that I can relate to as a guy

  29. Naa Li

    I lost a sofa, like it was a friend😔

  30. bactheusllo

    Everyone is probably wondering who this friend is that both Finneas and Billie had to write a massive piano ballad about him/her.

  31. Felicity McCall

    Let's go fin

  32. Erza

    Of course you lost a friend, your sis buried him

  33. Ania life

    so emotionally overwhelming, in a great way! ..... the only other time I get this feeling is when i watch an inspiring movie

  34. Ruzenia Quinzona

    I am the only one that don't know why this song hit me that bad

  35. Faith

    1K serial killers disliked this video

  36. Alexandra Arellano Cervantes

    Too relatable

  37. Dee Pee

    He needs to incorporate more strings and reverb to vocals to accentuate his haunting songs... And he is Billie's Brother. So yes their songs are intermingled

  38. Maiskornkönig // jotim123

    Finneas and Furb

  39. Chloe Simons

    Willy wonka and squirrels think hes a bad nut

  40. gabriella russin

    Wow this song just wow

  41. Lana Kravts

    Loved this song even before I realized who he is...

  42. Kees K

    But where is Ferb?

  43. osrs_aglester

    Anyone else think that 2:08 - 2:34 is an especially brilliant part of the song/music video??

  44. EckzC

    this is amazing

  45. Pat H

    Awesome song and video, just think it would have been better shot on 28mm

  46. Anthony Walton

    i've lost 2 best friends. the only 2 friends i felt happy hanging out with. one in may last year and recently last month. 1 i would hang out with everywhere and another we looked up to. first drowned in a lake and another to suicide. and now its me... mostly i'm ok but usually im not. i have no reason to tell anyone. and its so dark. but im not the type to give up when i have so much to lose. i know i would increase a chain of depression. so i am here holding it down. rip bryce and tim

    valeria c

    Stay strong♡♡ and R.I.P. for your friends I bet they were amazing people

  47. Hafeez

    i felt this

  48. ElvizNation

    2:07 Me when I lose my friend at the club

  49. zakraoui wiem

    It's about his high school best friend

  50. Aryagandhi Jennifer

    Music video director: How weird do you want your MV to be?

    Finneas: YES!

  51. Aryagandhi Jennifer

    This guy is the genius behind Billie's success really. And Billie is also a great artist in her own right with her beautiful sound. But her brother deserves as much credit as she does. I am a fan of both their music.

  52. Ezkavidor

    when I'm energetic: dancing to the song

    when I'm sad: the lyrics are actually deep

  53. Thalia Caetano

    Maravilhoso 🌻

    Lale Ozturk

    You think you are being respectful to finneas by commenting these but guys you are just being disrespectful to billie she makes her own music as well

    piccolaanima

    "There’s a lot of bullshit articles about me now, about how I’m not just Billie Eilish’s brother and just being Billie Eilish’s brother is all I ever wanna be."
