lyrics

It’s easy being angry
It’s harder being sad
When loving turns from being good
To being bad
It hurts my heart and spooks my soul
To think of doing it again
So, let’s be friends
Friends
Let’s be friends

Well, words don’t mean a thing
The proof is in the action
And it’s hard to fight the power of attraction
But I’ve put that cart before the horse
Done it again and again
So, let’s be friends
Friends
Let’s be friends

But do you know how to do it?
Can you take your time?
Can you pick me up in your pickup truck
Without saying I’m gonna make her mine?
I’ve heard the critics doubt it
And I guess I’m on the fence
Can a man and a woman just be friends?

Well, if this sounds confusing
(Yeah, please explain)
Ok, you know a woman of my age is tired
Of playing a young man’s game
(I can hear that)
I’ve been around enough to know
The love that has no end
And it all begins by being friends

But do you know how to do it?
Can you take your time?
Can you pick me up in your pickup truck
Without saying I’m gonna make her mine?
I’ve heard the critics doubt it
And I guess I’m on the fence
Can a man and a woman just be friends?

And I know how to do it
I can take my time
(I can take my time)
I can pick you up and try my luck
And take a chance, I could make you mine
I heard all about it and how it all could end
Can a man and a woman just be friends?
Can a man and a woman just be friends?
