Pulp – Like A Friend lyrics

Don't bother saying you're sorry / why don't you come in / smoke all my cigarettes again /
Every time I get no further / how long has it been? / come on in now, wipe your feet on my
Dreams / you take up my time / like some cheap magazine / when I could have been learning
Something / oh well, you know what I mean, oh / I've done this before / and I will do it
Again / come on and kill me baby / while you smile like a friend / oh and I'll come
Running / just to do it again / you are the last drink I never should have drunk / you are
The body hidden in the trunk / you are the habit I can't seem to kick / you are my secrets
On the front page every week / you are the car I never should have bought / you are the
Dream I never should have caught / you are the cut that makes me hide my face / you are
The party that makes me feel my age / like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid /
Like a plane I've been told I never should board / like a film that's so bad but I've got
To stay till the end / let me tell you now: it's lucky for you that we're friends.
