Damn Good Friends

  • Thought I’d
    Slide past the walls of your heart like
    You’re from the fly taking my time
    Before revealing my
    True intention
    But you’re so impossible to suggest
    When
    You like us just the way we is
    Please pardon me for my interjection

    I long for you
    It kills me to pretend
    I’m not in love when I so am
    But you don’t understand
    That we’re such
    Damn good friends
    We could be a whole lot more
    We could be a whole lot more
    And we’re such damn good friends

    Two puzzles
    Identical with the same piece
    Missing from both never complete
    Never achieving their
    True perfection
    So why go scour the earth for the missed piece
    Maybe the piece is in our kiss
    Maybe the answers in my direction

    I long for you
    It kills me to pretend
    I’m not in love when I so am
    But you don’t understand
    That we’re such
    Damn good friends
    We could be a whole lot more
    We could be a whole lot more
    And we’re such damn good friends Writer/s: ELLE VARNER, JIMMY VARNER
