Don't Turn Your Back…

  • When things were good I know you would always be there for me
    Yes, It's true; friends like you are few and far between
    I wish I may, I wish I might, the things you do ain't quite right
    Just ain't right

    And still we try to pretend
    That you will be here in the end
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't ever turn your back on a friend
    Don't turn your back

    When things were bad you always had something else better to do
    It's just a lie to think that I could ever mean anything to you
    You steal what's mine then help me look for it;
    How many times do I pay for it? How many times?

    And still we try to pretend
    That you will be here in the end
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't ever turn your back on a friend

    And still we try to pretend
    That you will be here in the end
    The best advice that I can lend
    Don't ever turn your back on a friend
