My Friend

Album: Petals for Armor (2020)
  • Mm, ah

    Little wrinkle by your eye
    I never noticed 'til right now
    Little vicious tiger stripes
    If you get closer to my thighs
    When you're walkin' with a limp
    I can remember the wolves at your heels
    When my shadow barges in
    You never questioned why she is here

    My friend
    When the blood has dried
    My friend
    Instant alibi
    You've seen me from every side
    Still down for the ride
    Ooh, my friend
    You know why

    Not a secret I can't keep
    All of your good and your evil
    Well, babe, you can leave it with me
    Safe, together
    If it's wrong or if it's right
    I am beside you, famine or fire

    My friend
    When the blood has dried
    My friend
    Instant alibi
    You've seen me from every side
    Still down for the ride
    Ooh, my friend

    Who could take your place?
    Who could take mine?
    None could take your place
    None could take mine

    My friend
    When the blood has dried
    My friend (we stay safe together, we stay safe together)
    Instant alibi (escape death forever)
    You've seen me from all sides
    Still down for the ride
    Ooh, my friend
    You know why

    We stay safe together
    We stay safe together
    We stay safe together
    Escape death forever
    Escape death forever
    Escape death forever
    We stay safe together
    We stay safe together
    We stay safe together
    Escape death forever
    Escape death forever
    We stay safe together
    Escape death forever Writer/s: Hayley Williams, Joey Howard
