Brand New Friend
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


Walking in the pouring rain
Walking with Jesus and Jane
Jane was in her turtleneck
I was much happier then

If I were to ask you
What would you do with yourself?
If I were to tell you
Would you just talk to yourself?
Am I asking oh for so much?
I'm not asking to be understood
Am I asking oh for so much?
I'm just looking for a brand new friend
A brand new friend

Walking in the pouring rain
Walking with Jesus and Jane
Jane was in her turtleneck
I was much happier then

Am I asking oh for so much?
You could do anything you wanted to
Am I asking oh for so much?
No, just something that I can hold down
'Cause it's all downhill now

So let me count the times that we swore and lied that we'd
Tie ourself to the railway line
Let me count the times when of course we lied
Well we knew no better, it was no crime
Let me count the times

I, well I don't know when I, when I'll be content
But I do know I need a brand new friend

Walking in the pouring rain walking with jesus and jane
Jane was in her turtle neck I was much happier then

If I were to ask you what you would do with yourself
If I were to tell you would you just talk to yourself
Am I asking oh for so much
I`m not asking to be understood
Am I asking oh for so much
I`m just looking for a brand new friend

Walking in the pouring rain walking with jesus and jane
Jane was in her turtle neck I was much happier then
Am I asking oh for so much
You could do anything you wanted to
Am I asking oh for so much
No just something that I can hold down

Because it`s all downhill now

So let me count the times that we swore and lied
That we`d tie ourselves to the railway line
Now Let me count the times when of course we lied
Well we know no better it was no crime
Let me count the times

I well I don't know when I when i`ll be content
But I do know I need a brand new friend

This song makes me remember my wife. She passes away to heaven as 07/04/2001. She leaves me with 3 children carry on.
She loved this song.

Love all around you. She will always be right here- inside your children, inside you- she's part of you. Beautiful dream x

When I was at university all the girls were in love with Lloyd Cole.  The Commotions didn't get much of a look in.  

Svejk fan

I always thought of them as the Demotions.
