Friends Don't

Album: One Heart to Another (2018)
  • They don't cancel other plans
    Have conversations with nothing but their eyes
    They don't hear each other's names and forget to concentrate
    Hits a nerve and lights you up like dynamite

    Friends don't call you in the middle of the night
    Couldn't even tell you why
    They just felt like saying "hi"
    Friends don't stand around, playing with their keys
    Finding reasons not to leave
    Trying to hide the chemistry
    Drive a little too slow, take the long way home
    Get a little too close
    We do, but friends don't

    They don't almost say "I love you"
    When they're downtown somewhere, just a little drunk
    They don't talk about the future and put each other in it
    And get chills with every accidental touch

    Friends don't call you in the middle of the night
    Couldn't even tell you why
    They just felt like saying "hi"
    Friends don't stand around, playing with their keys
    Finding reasons not to leave
    Trying to hide the chemistry
    Drive a little too slow, take the long way home
    Get a little too close
    We do, but friends don't

    I keep telling myself this might be nothing
    But one look in your eyes and, God, there's something
    You can lie to me and say you don't
    But I know you do, and I love you too

    Friends don't call you in the middle of the night
    Couldn't even tell you why
    They just felt like saying "hi"
    Friends don't stand around, playing with their keys
    Finding reasons not to leave
    Trying to hide the chemistry
    Drive a little too slow, take the long way home
    Get a little too close
    We do, but friends don't
    Uh uh uh
    Friends don't Writer/s: Justin Ebach, Maddie Marlow, Jon Nit, Taylor Dye
