Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh

You say you love me, I say you crazy
We're nothing more than friends
You're not my lover, more like a brother
I known you since we were like ten, yeah
Don't mess it up, talking that shit
Only gonna push me away, that's it
When you say you love me, that make me crazy
Here we go again

Don't go look at me with that look in your eye
You really ain't going away without a fight
You can't be reasoned with, I'm done being polite
I've told you one, two, three, four, five, six thousand times

Haven't I made it obvious?
Haven't I made it clear?
Want me to spell it out for you?
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
Haven't I made it obvious?
Haven't I made it clear?
Want me to spell it out for you?
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
F-R-I-E-N-D-S

Have you got no shame? You looking insane
Turning up at my door
It's two in the morning, the rain is pouring
Haven't we been here before?

Don't mess it up, talking that shit
Only gonna push me away, that's it
Have you got no shame? You looking insane
Here we go again

So don't go look at me with that look in your eye
You really ain't going away without a fight
You can't be reasoned with, I'm done being polite
I've told you one, two, three, four, five, six thousand times

Haven't I made it obvious? (Haven't I made it?)
Haven't I made it clear? (Haven't I made it clear?)
Want me to spell it out for you?
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
Haven't I made it obvious?
Haven't I made it clear? (Haven't I?)
Want me to spell it out for you? (To spell it out for you?)
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
F-R-I-E-N-D-S

F-R-I-E-N-D-S
That's how you f- spell "friends"
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
Get that shit inside your head
No, no, yeah, uh, ah
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
We're just friends

So don't go look at me with that look in your eye
You really ain't going nowhere without a fight
You can't be reasoned with, I'm done being polite
I've told you one, two, three, four, five, six thousand times

Haven't I made it obvious? (Have I not made it obvious?)
Haven't I made it clear? (I made it very clear)
Want me to spell it out for you? (Yo)
F-R-I-EN-D-S (I said F-R-I-E-N-D-S)
Haven't I made it obvious? (I made it very obvious)
Haven't I made it clear? (I made it very clear)
Want me to spell it out for you?
F-R-I-E-N-D-S
F-R-I-E-N-D-S





Mmm, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
Ah, ah-oh, ah

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Marshmello's song "FRIENDS" tell a story of a person who is constantly being pursued by someone who claims to love them but who they only see as a friend. The first verse sets out the situation clearly - the two of them have known each other since childhood and have never been anything more than friends. The main character is not interested in taking things further but the other person is in love with them and won't take no for an answer. The chorus reiterates the fact that they are just friends and that the other person should stop trying to push them towards a romantic relationship.


The second verse brings some additional details to the situation - the other person is turning up unannounced at all hours, which is making the main character feel uncomfortable and harassed. The chorus repeats again how they are just friends and that the other person needs to accept that. The song ends with a final chorus which spells out the word "FRIENDS" as if to hammer home the point that this is all they will ever be.


Overall, the lyrics to "FRIENDS" are about the importance of clear communication in relationships. The main character has made it clear from the start that they only see the other person as a friend, but the other person is not respecting their boundaries and is causing them distress. The song advocates for people to listen to each other and respect each other's wishes, rather than trying to force a relationship where one person is not interested.
