False Friends
Stephen Marley Lyrics


Just when I thought everything was good
Friend I guess I misunderstood
Thought that we had mutual respect
Now I see the thanks that we get

So be careful who you choose as your friends
For they might let you down in the end
Just when I thought, a real good friend I found
They pick you up to let you down, yeah
Them let you down down down
They let you down down down
Them let you down down down
Down down down down down

So my son always bear in mind
A faithful friend is the hardest thing to find
It is better an open enemy
A false friend is the hardest thing to see

'Cause when times are good when the friends are plenty
In times of trouble, we're not one in twenty
Just when I thought, a real good friend I found
They pick you up to let you down, ah

We were friends, we were friends
Real good friends, we were friends
We were friends, we were friends
And I remember when

Just when I thought everything was good
My friend I guess I misunderstood
Thought that we had love and respect
But now I see the thanks that we get

So I'm careful who I choose as my friends
For they might let me down in the end
Just a thought, when I thought, when I thought

Them let you down down down
Them let you down down down
Them let you down down down
Down down down down down

They let you down down down
Them let you down down down
Them let you down down down
Down down down down down

We were friends, we were friends
Real good friends, real good friends
We were friends, we were friends
And I remember when were good friends
Real good friends

Just when I thought everything was good,
 Friend a case I misunderstood
 Thought that we had mutual respect,
 Now I see the thanks that we get,
 So be careful who you chose as your friends,
 For they might let u down in the end,
 Just when I thought a real good friend I found,
 They pick you up to let you down Dem let u down down down,
 They let you down down down down,
 Dem let u down down down,
 Down down down down down So my son always care in mind,
 A faithful friend is hardest thing to find,
 It is better an open enemy,
 A false friend is hardest thing to see
 Cause when times are good well are friends are plenty
 In times of trouble when not one in twenty,
 Just when I thought a real good friend I found,
 They pick you up to let you down We were fiends, we were fiends,
 Real good fiends, we were fiends,
 We were fiends, we were fiends and I remember when... Just when I thought everything was good,
 My friend a case I misunderstood,
 Thought that we had love and respect,
 But now I see the thanks that we get,
 So i'm careful who I chose as my friends,
 For they might let me down in the end,
 Just a thought, when I thought, when I thought Dem let u down down down,
 Dem let u down down down,
 Dem let u down down down,
 Down down down down down, They let u down down down,
 Dem let u down down down,
 Dem let u down down down,
 Down down down down down, We were fiends, we were fiends,
 Real good fiends, real good fiends,
 We were fiends, we were fiends,
 And I remember when we were good friends, real good friends

Just lost a friend of 8 years..Someone that i trusted with my life... the hurt of a lost friend can be stronger then the hurt of a lost lover

Same feeling here... but really thinking about it I asked my self how much wrong has they done to me since our friendship started.... after 16 years of friendship to loose for one wrong doesn't seem right.... the first step starts with you now... try contacting them
