What Friends Are For

lyrics

I want to be your friend yes—I really do
I want to chat and cry and laugh and always be there for you
but if we’re both tired after work and talking is a chore
—that’s ok—cause comfortable silence is what friends are for
comfortable silence is what friends are for

If you had to use the bathroom at a store or at a bar
you could leave your purse with me and i wouldn’t go that far
or we could go together, but we’d have to put our purses on the floor
but that’s worth it—cause talking while you pee is what friends are for
talking while you pee is what friends are for

I would let you know that I have got your back
but I don’t always need to tell if you if somebody’s talking smack
and if you get a bad haircut I won’t bring it up— cause that’s your—problem
and being pretty honest is what friends are for
being pretty honest is what friends are for

I’ll know your coffee order and I’ll know how to make it
and if you want a beer from my fridge you won’t ask, you’ll just take it
I will not tease you if you date a bassist
and I’ll be calm and quiet if I have to call you out for saying something racist

I’ll listen to you talk about your frustrating day at work
I’ll totally agree when you say your boss is such a jerk
and I don’t the whole story at all——but I’d take your side in a war
cause hating total strangers is what friends are for
hating total strangers is what friends are for
