When will we get the time to be just friends?

It's never safe for us,
Not even in the evening cause I've been drinking
Not in the morning when your shit works,
It's always dangerous
When everybody's sleeping and I've been thinking,
Can we be alone
Can we be alone

When will we get, the time to be, just friends
When will we get, the time to be, just friends

And no I'm not ashamed,
But the guilt will kill you,
If she don't first
I'll never love you like her
Thought we need to find a time to just do this shit together
For it gets worse,
I want to touch you,
But that just hurts

When will we get, the time to be, just friends
When will we get, the time to be just friends, just friends

When will we get, the time to be, just friends
When will we get, the time to be, just friends

Just friends.
