Boys & Girls
Alabama Shakes Lyrics

Oh why can't we be
Best friends anymore?
They say a friend
Ain't to be
Between a girl and a boy
I don't know who said it
Or why it got to be so wrong

Oh why don't you call
Don't you care anymore
It's not fair
Don't let them get you
It took us both and now I got to fix you
Well I don't know how to fix you
You say it's just the way it's got to be, but how so?

Is an awful lot of questions
And I can't give me no answer
I keep wondering on

Oh why can't you see
That I'm not trying to be
No kind of bother
I'm just trying to say what was left between you and me
And where we left it before they took it
And you know they took it all
And took off

Oh why did I let them drive a wedge between
Well I watched it and I didn't say nothing
And now I'm crying when I sleep
Now I'm saying, I'm praying, to that sweet melody in my soul

Is an awful lot of questions
And I can't give me no answer
I keep wondering on

I wanna know who said it
Who said it, oh Lord
