You tend to lean on your reputation
To get you out of a mess, mmm
You lose your place in some new revelation
Then come to me to confess, no!
Woulda, shoulda, coulda but you never learn
To keep me in the center of things
I'll be there for you just show me some faith in return
You're quick to say you can do it your way

To be your friend

Oh! Rely on me!
Don't sell your soul for some cheap imitation
There ain't no time for mistakes, mmm
Gotta stick with me cause there's no consolation
You lose this one, that's the breaks, no!
Woulda, shoulda, coulda but you never learn

To keep me in the center of things
I'll be there for you just show me some faith in return
You're quick to say you can do it your way
But now look who keeps gettin' burned
You can rely on me
To be your friend
(Oooooooo)
You can rely on me
I'll understand

I'm ready to walk you through the dark because I'm a count-on friend
I give you my word we won't be apart 'til we see the light at the other end!
Woulda, shoulda, coulda but you never learn
(Never learn)
To keep me in the center of things, mmm
I'll be there for you just show me some faith in return
You're quick to say you can do it your way
But now look who keeps gettin' burned
