I know my hands are tied
I can't see nothing when you're inside
And I know the nights are long
You're falling asleep with your new dress on
Close your eyes and drift away
I'll be right here when you're awake

[Chorus]
It's funny how no one's laughing
The champagne's popping and the baby's coughing
It's the same old story, the same old movie
But when you're with me it's a masterpiece
'Cause you are my only friend

You know nothing's free
You can pray all night, but they'll take their fee
And who knows how long it'll take?
Why stand in line with all the fakes?
Look around, look away
Tomorrow's just another day

[Chorus]
Yes, you are my only friend
[2x]
