Friends
Chase Atlantic Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Girl, tell me what you're doing on the other side?
And so, just tell me, what you're doing with that other guy?

'Cause I ain't got patience to slow down the bass
All your girlfriends are wasted
They need it, they chase it
Face it, you want it, you crave it
Believe when I say that you'll know once you taste it

All of your friends have been here for too long
They must be waiting for you to move on
Girl, I'm not with it, I'm way too far gone
I'm not ready, eyes heavy now
Heart on your sleeve like you've never been loved
Running in circles, now look what you've done
Give you my word as you take it and run
Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now

Just give some time and space to realize that you
Were busy lying sleeping 'round with other guys

And what the hell were we?
Tell me we weren't just friends
This doesn't make much sense, no
But I'm not hurt, I'm tense
'Cause I'll be fine without you babe

All of your friends have been here for too long
They must be waiting for you to move on
Girl, I'm not with it I'm way too far gone
I'm not ready, eyes heavy now
Heart on your sleeve like you've never been loved
Running in circles, now look what you've done
Give you my word as you take it and run
Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now

Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now
I'm not ready, eyes heavy now

All of your friends have been here for too long
They must be waiting for you to move on
Girl, I'm not with it I'm way too far gone
I'm not ready, eyes heavy now
Heart on your sleeve like you've never been loved
Running in circles, now look what you've done
Give you my word as you take it and run
Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now
I'm not ready, eyes heavy now
Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now




I'm not ready, eyes heavy now
Wish you'd let me stay, I'm ready now
