We can't be friends, you can't drop by
If I run into your brother,
Can't tell him to tell you hi
You can't call, I can't pick up
We can't meet for margaritas
I can't wear that dress you love

'Cause you'll look at me
Like I want you to
Then we'll brush hands
Like we accidentally always do
We'll stay too late, or laugh too hard
Hug too long, and that ain't too far
From wakin' up where we've always been

We can't be friends, we both know that
You can't tell me you don't love her
And I've got no right to ask
So I'll pretend like I don't care
I won't send a birthday card
And if you see me out somewhere

Don't look at me
Like I want you to
'Cause we'll brush hands
Like we accidentally always do
We'll stay too late, laugh too hard
Hug too long,and that ain't too far
From wakin' up right where we've always been
We can't be friends

We can't be friends, it's just too tough
It's not that I don't love you
It's that I love you way too much
We'll just end up here again
We can't be friends
