Picture House – Only A Friend lyrics


You have all you want
Your shadow stands so tall
You can't see over it
And it's what you need

There's no-one going to
Stop you from believing it
And so the game begins
Watching the china spin
Walking on gilded pins

Become more than a mother's son
Who jumped the blocks before the gun
Disturbed the silent sun I know
Only a friend would know
And though you think it just don't show
Only a friend would notice
Only a friend would know

When you're getting down
Remember all the things
We used to dream about
How you'd leave this town
And be the only thing they'd talk about
There's something to be said
For laying down and playing dead
Why don't you live instead
