I'm a ne'er do well
Runnin' off black gold
It's high time I pulled over
And walked around a while

I've seen that porcelain shell
Your exoskeleton
And I feel like we'd walk well together

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers.

If asked of me I would
Gobble them to bits
The things that wall us off from
Where we belong

What's wrong with you is good
For what's wrong with me
And I think maybe we should stick together.

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers
We are friends and lovers.

Abandon all the bones
We've got to pick
They'll only weigh us down and
We're better than that
If they all throw stones
Start a collection
Of everything we're not
And wont (be)cause

You should never have to defend
Being friends and lovers.
Being friends and lovers.
Being friends and lovers.

    To me this songs means that in order to be life long lovers as a couple you have to be friends; because if you dont that is when one partner starts looking in another direction for a different kind of attention. So no matter what anyone says if they become one by ignoring everyone and remaining friends while being lovers then they can take on the world. . .

    Society likes labels. They want us to fit in neat boxes. We are raised to be good tax paying citizens, get married and have the next generation of tax payers. This song is about love and living in the moment. Having therelationship you want and not what society expects of you. The honesty is refreshing and so utterly romantic...

    Well i'm going through this situation but she has a boyfriend and she claims to be in love with him but she says that with me she feels like she didn't felt with anyone before. I'm in love with her and i've got some benefits, i've tried to make her break up with her boyfriend with no success and this breaks my heart. I wish no one goes through what i'm going through.

    To me it means its ok to be friends and sometimes lovers too, even if people tell you it's wrong. That you mean something, but not everything? And that whatever you both do wrong, its making the other one better. I like having someone like this in my life :) xx

    the first 2 lines are incorrect. It's:

    I'm a ne'er do well. Running off Black Gold.

    Meaning he's a good for nothing living off an oil inheritance!
