Delay & tremolo

I watched you falling from the wall
I let the magpies steal your bread
And when you said those stupid things
I wouldn’t promise to forget

When you asked me questions patiently
even still I didn’t bend
Can we be, can we still be friends?

So you shouted some mean things at me
So loud even the neighbours could quote you
And when the black boots kicked down our door
I was the one who sold you

I always thought one way or another
you wouldn’t take it personally
can we be can we still be friends
can we be, can we still be friends?

And the storm comes
and the rain falls
and we try our very best to keep our heads above it all
as it overflows

I pulled you back on the stairs
to reach underneath your dress
in the the dark your breathe was lemonade
we were holy hushed and breathless
even when I drove away
you said you didn’t want the night to end

So can we be, possibly
can we still be friends?

And the storm comes
and the rain falls
and we do our very best to keep our heads above it all
and we do our very best to keep our heads
delay & tremolo
