Avril Lavigne – Friends lyrics

When I first saw you
I never thought I would love you
At all, or at least as I do now
I don't know when it happened or how

When we were best friends, all we did was hang out, laugh, and joke
Never did I stutter, or choke
Until just this year, I don't know why
I became extremely shy
I look at you and look away
For I don't know what to say

Now it's the last day of school
Everyone thinks this day is so cool
But not for me
For it is today, that I see
How dumb I'm being, acting
While I'm hiding, last year we'd be talking
The last day, last year,
You said goodbye, and now we're here

Will it ever be the same?
Will we ever just sit and talk, it used to be that way
Now I'm not sure it can come to be
For I am no longer the old me

I am shy, I am weak
Seemed to have broken my good-girl streak
The thing that keeps me going everyday
Is that you look past all that and see me, the old way
You see me, and I see you, what's the problem, then?
I don't know, but I want to be the best friends we used to be
