so you said i’ll sit straight on the couch like friends do,

and i’ll stop kissing your mouth like friends do,

cause i can’t look at you quite like friends do,

you don’t say my name quite like friends do,

i kiss your neck does it feel like friends do?

so baby say it again i dare you.

does this feel like what friends do?
