Its about a friend who is only your friend for the sole purpose of using you. And those are the worst kind.

I don't know why I never noticed
The stench of betrayal heavy in the air
Everytime you walk into my house
Clutching the friendship hall pass in your hand as an excuse
My heart flutters with hope
As you beckon for my help
Fooled by your friendly smile
Fooled by your manipulative smile
This deja vulnerable feeling is overwelming

I wonder
Whether the day I die
Will you be the person crying?
Or the person who will mumble my name
With unfamiliarity
As if my name were that of a total stranger
And I realise now
That neither of them would be you
You won't even attend my funeral

You always need me
But sometimes you forget
But most of the times you forget
That I might need you too

You know what hurts the most?
The fact that you don't even know
How much it hurts me
So, when you keep coming back
For a favour
I nod, not knowing how to say no
While my heart breaks inside
Piece by piece

Sadly, I haven't met people who actually want to be my friends. So, still searching.
