Like A Friend

N.B. Please do not read the lyrics whilst listening to the recordings

Don't bother saying sorry.
Why don't you come in?
Smoke all my cigarettes - again.
Everytime I get no further.
How long has it been?
Come on in now.
Wipe your feet on my dreams.
You take up my time, like some cheap magazine.
When I could have been learning something.
Well, you know what I mean.
I've done all this before and I will do it again.
C'mon and kill me baby whilst you smile like a friend.
And I'll come running.
Just do it again.

I can't believe it.
That this is still going on.
Just how stupid can one person be?
Just how stupid and wrong.
You are the last drink I never should have drunk.
You are the body hidden in the trunk.
You are the habit I can't seem to kick.
You are the secrets on the front page every week.
You are the car I never should have bought.
You are the train I never should have caught.
You are the cut that makes me hide my face.
You are the party that makes me feel my age.
Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid.
Like a plane I've been told I never should board.
Like a film that's so bad but I've just got to stay 'til the end.
Let me tell you - it's lucky for you that we're friends.
Remember it is ok to grow, just dont grow old.

Lyrics by Jarvis Cocker, music by Pulp.
