  • I heard it from a friend of a friend
    You're livin' out in LA now
    Got a studio apartment, couple blocks off the beach
    Doing yoga in the evenings, you love the kids you teach

    I heard it from a friend of a friend
    You met somebody in a coffee shop
    You've been goin' out now, for goin' on ten months
    You already met his family, things are heatin' up

    Don't you believe, anything you hear
    When someone tells you, I still ask about you
    After all these years
    No matter what they say, it's just not true
    I don't spend all my days and all my nights
    Just missin' you

    I heard it from a friend of a friend
    You looked amazing in that long white gown
    With flowers in your hair, barefoot in the sand
    Your daddy almost broke down when he gave away your hand

    But don't you believe, anything you hear
    When someone tells you, I still ask about you
    After all these years
    No matter what they say, it's just not true
    I don't spend all my days and all my nights
    Just missin' you

    I heard it from a friend of a friend
    He didn't mean it when he took those vows
    You've been stayin' with your mama, a couple weeks now
    Been asking everybody about me

    I heard it from a friend of a friend
    I heard it from a friend of a friend Writer/s: ANDREW DORFF, JOSH KEAR, MARK IRWIN
