  • Oh why can't we be
    Best friends anymore?
    They say a friend
    Ain't to be
    Between a girl and a boy
    I don't know who said it
    Or why it got to be so wrong

    Oh why don't you call
    Don't you care anymore
    It's not fair
    Don't let them get you
    It took us both and now I got to fix you
    Well I don't know how to fix you
    You say it's just the way it's got to be, but how so?

    Why
    Is an awful lot of questions
    And I can't give me no answer
    I keep wondering on

    Oh why can't you see
    That I'm not trying to be
    No kind of bother
    I'm just trying to say what was left between you and me
    And where we left it before they took it
    And you know they took it all
    And took off

    Oh why did I let them drive a wedge between
    Well I watched it and I didn't say nothing
    And now I'm crying when I sleep
    Now I'm saying, I'm praying, to that sweet melody in my soul

    Why
    Is an awful lot of questions
    And I can't give me no answer
    I keep wondering on

    I wanna know who said it
    Who said it, oh Lord Writer/s: Brittany Amber Howard, Heath Allen Fogg, Steven William Johnson, Zachary Riley Cockrell
