  • Have you ever been stabbed in the back
    By someone you thought was really cool
    Did they steal your heart or was it money
    Or was it lies they told
    Strangers just disguised as your friends
    Never again ?cause now you know

    That friends will let you down
    Friends won't be around
    When you need them most
    Where are your friend

    Friends are hard to find
    Friends, yours and mine
    I'm talkin' ?bout your friends

    Smiles they hide behind
    Never know what's on their mind
    Could be true deception
    Jealousy and envy reign
    They never want to see you get ahead
    They just hold you back

    Friends will let you down
    Friends won't be around
    When you need them most
    Where are your friend, oh, oh

    Friends are hard to find
    Friends, yours and mine
    I'm talkin' ?bout your friends

    Friends are hard to find, so be careful
    You could find an inch or mile if I pay you
    But some ain't that bad, but one might back stab
    To get the fake tips of what one might have
    Bite the hand that feeds you, leave the people who need you
    For those who hold you back and mislead you
    To be a needle, don't get lead on unleaded
    The wrong direction, a dead end's next then
    Heed the detour, life's like a seesaw
    The ups and downs, and I'll bet there'll be more
    Potholes and obstacles in our path, that's righteous
    At times you need a hand to fight this
    Way of life, straighten up, take the door to the placid
    And don't you act two-faced
    ?Cause jealousy and envy, and you still act friendly
    You could find the end and pretend to be

    Friends will let you down
    Friends won't be around
    When you need them most
    Where are your friends, yeah

    Friends are hard to find
    Friends, yours and mine
    I'm talkin' ?bout your friends

    Used to me kiss me, tell me you missed me
    But now you try to glaze me, play me and diss me
    Uh, wide awake, ready to break, so we argue
    What happened to the kisses, and, "Why, how are you?"
    Forgot about the times when I rhymed when I bathed you
    Dreams was the only little things that I gave you
    You still ain't thankful, you're still complainin'
    Used to be a quiet storm, but now it's rainin'
    Farther than ever, I'm thinkin' whether
    If we should be friends, let it end, is it better
    To forget or remember, your body's tender
    The rhymes that I send her, makes her surrender
    The feeling of capture, caught in a rapture
    No woman can match ya, so when I'm lookin' at ya
    Paint a perfect picture so you can remember me
    But you can find the end if you pretend to be

    Friends will let you down
    Friends won't be around
    When you need them most
    Where are your friends, oh, oh

    Friends are hard to find
    Friends, yours and mine
    I'm talkin' ?bout your friends

    Friends will let you down
    Friends won't be around
    When you need them most
    Where are your friends, yeah

    Friends are hard to find
    Friends, yours and mine
