Françoise Hardy – Only Friends lyrics

If we are only friends, why do you kiss me like you do?
If we are only friends, why do you hold me all night through?
Do the words "I love you" never come to your mind
Don't you know I love you or is love really blind?

And every time we dance, when there is starlight up above
I wonder if by chance, you will discover this is love
Could we be as happy as we both seem to be?
Could we be so happy
For the whole world to see if we are only friends?

All evening in your arms you hold me 'til suddenly it's time to part
I wonder why you always hold me, so close to your heart

If we are only friends, why don't you dance with someone new?
And when the party ends, why do I always leave with you?
There's a happy ending but on you that depends
And until you tell me, I can only say, we're just very good friends
We are only good friends, we're still very good friends.
