Friends?

from Y Kant Tori Read demo, 1985
music and lyrics by Myra Ellen Amos a.k.a. "Tori" Amos


Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse:

Hollywood skies tell the tale
Two kids growing up and doing well
One kid seems to get all the breaks
Counting down the days they'd graduate

Taking tests but failing with B's
Plotting who would get their virginity
Secrets left out on the sand
How could it just slip right through our hands

Chorus:

And I thought we were friends
And I think of how we were
And I thought we were friends
And I thought we were
Friends

Verse:

Night-time hey you crash at my place
Home away from home you'd always say
Nothing turned out like we planned
Promises just slipped right through our hands

Chorus:

And I thought we were friends
And I think of how we were
And I thought we were friends
And I thought we were

Bridge:

Don't turn away I know you need me
not much to say I know you need me
So wrong -- but we can't see it

Chorus:

And I thought we were friends
And I think of how we were
And I thought we were friends
And I thought we were
Friends
