about

Friend of Mine is not a love song. It is a gentle break up song for a long term friendship that has been in long term turmoil.

lyrics

Friend of Mine by illy
______________________________
If, my friend, you were a friend to me
You would be honest, and you wouldn't cheat
Wouldn't get hung up on jealousy
You would learn just to let bygones be

If, my friend, you were a friend of mine
You would be sincere and not aim to blind
Just as in love there's more fish in the blue sea
And this here lame friendship just ain't meant to be

Ooh, my friend. Ooh ooh ooh

Unleash the friendless, and set them free
Why you wait?
No need to bleed, it turns into hate.
When yours is yours, it truly will be
Hold on be patient, girl,
Just breath

And, my friend, if you were a friend of mine
You would be sincere and not aim to blind
Drifted so far now it's hard to believe
But this here lame friendship just ain't meant for me

Hush, be patient girl
No place for greed
Hush, don't waste it girl
This friendships diseased.
