A Friend To You Lyrics

Day after day
I wonder why
This still should be
Any kind of surprise;
Nothing has changed
When I open my eyes —
I’m just a friend…
I'm just a friend to you.

Tables are turned
End over end
And this is a room
Where no love has been;
And no love lives now
And, though I pretend —
I’m just a friend…
I'm just a friend to you.

You turned to me
Without knowing how
I always was there
And am, even now;
Taking your arm
When you would allow,
Whenever a bitter wind blew...

And blow, it still does
In rings around my bed
And plays through the trees
That twist in my head;
I live to be more
But instead —
I’m just a friend…
I'm just a friend to you.

Why must I grieve
Like something was lost,
Like the light had gone out
Where our streets would cross;
Though this was always
Our way when we walked,
This isn't a street that goes through...

I wouldn’t change
The words that I spoke,
Though they haunt me now
Like clothes smell of smoke;
They lay on the floor
In this room where I woke
Alone, just a friend…
Just a friend to you.
