Friends Are Hard To Come By

I am a pessimist you see the cup half full
I push the envelope when you would rather pull
You see in colors while I see black and white
Either way we’re neither wrong nor right

You live your way and I’ll live mine
Cause I don’t see the point in drawing battle lines
I’ll never make you take my side
When friends are so hard to come by

Let’s say I make a pass and she forgets to say no
Then we hit it off and try to take it slow
Next the you know we’ve fallen out of love
once you fall below you never rise above

If I gave into temptation
I’d run the risk of becoming her obligation
Maybe its best to never try
When friends are so hard to come by

Even though I might lose touch with you
You should know I miss you so much, I do
Every day in every way
And I thought I should say

You and me we get along so well
must be a reason but I can’t really tell
maybe we have something others don’t
If so I’ll never say as long as you won’t

Is it our past that keep us together
Or the present day that makes us forever
In the end I won’t ask why
When friends are so hard
When friends are so hard
When friends are so hard to come by
