Won’t you be my friend
Won’t you be my friend
I’ll love you to the end
Won’t you be my friend

They say that life is hard
But it’s really not
I’ll take the love you give
And I won’t keep it hid
Won’t you be my friend

You don’t need to shout
I can figure it out
If you don’t want to play
I’ll be on my way
Won’t you be my friend

I’ve got some dark memories
That I carry with me
But that’s not who I am
I’m your best friend
Won’t you be my friend
