Everything is going fine
It's all going to be okay
I don't mind being your friend
I think I like it this way

It isn't hard on me at all
All is going so well
I wish I had found out all this
Before, for you, I fell

If only I could believe that
If only that were true
If only I wasn't thinking
Constantly about you

Yes, I can be just your friend
That much I can do
But to never dream of more...
To leave behind you...

I believe it's possible
Forgive me if it takes time
For me to accomplish that
Would take many days and nights

The tears on my face
They will all need dried
'Fore forgetting you
'Fore I even try

The wounds on my body
Most of which remain
Will need cleaned and stitched up
'Fore I can be your friend

The pieces of my shattered life
And of my broken heart
I'll need to pick all of those up
Before I play this part

But all this is behind the scenes
None of it will you see
For the most part you'll see nothing
I might act differently

I accepted it as fact
After with my heart I fought
I"ll be no more than a friend
Whether I like it or not

Only tonight excuse me
As I cry myself to sleep
I'm taking the baby steps
For tonight I feel so weak

Everything's gonna be fine
It might all turn out okay
I'll try to learn to be your friend
I'll learn to like it this way
