This feels so wrong, I'm so confused
You give me love, but you can't be true
You say you need your space and time
With or without you I'll lose my mind


Oh yes I know if meant to be
In the future we'll be hand in hand
But girl right now you're killing me
'Cause I know you're making love to another man


Chorus:
Do you really want to be just friends
Don't you s'til love me
It's so hard for me to understand
You say you love me


You call me for some time to spend
Just long as I'm out your door by 10:00pm
Platonic love will have to suffice
Can't bear the thought of you out of my life


I've tried to end this misery
But I'm always picking up that phone
Swallow my pride, I beg and plead
But you always sing the same ole song, "We can be friends"


Chorus


Solo


Chorus out
