Friends aren't everything you've dreamed of

and friends can't give you everything

but you can find some things that you wish for

when you take from your friends what you bring

 

Sometimes it's just a dollar for a dance

and sometimes you get fed up with romance

so you call on your friends

and you share all you thoughts in their glance

 

Friends aren't everything you've dreamed of

no

and friends can't give you everything

but you know

you can find some things that you wish for

when you take from your friends what you bring

 

If you could hear the words I say

you'd maybe say I'm crazy

oh, but I'm just the same

as I've always been

I've always been

 

You poor little thing

a long time you've been straying

no telephone rings

although I keep praying

ah, but I don't mind

I've still got time

to listen

to listen

to listen

for

the

phone

  

 

Friends

 

If you could hear the words I say

you'd maybe say I'm crazy

oh, but I'm just the same

as I've always been

I've always been

 

You poor little thing

a long time you've been straying

no telephone rings

although I keep praying

ah, but I don't mind

I've still got time

to listen for the phone
