ASKING FOR A FRIEND

Template for Love

Oh no! I said yes to a woman
Even though I knew
I’d be turning all the rumours
From ridiculous to true

On my life I didn’t mean to do it
Now she keeps coming through
Pour me something stronger than desire
And I’ll drink up that one too

Now I’m inventing names
So our phones won’t know the things we do
And I’m pretending that I wouldn’t
Rather be with you

Will you let it all go?
Help me make rock ‘n’ roll?
Will you tear out a soul?
And stand on a heart?
Let go of a hand?
And not give a damn?
Will you love again?
I’m asking for a friend




I swear when I said I was lonely
I was telling you the truth
But If I said my bed was empty
I was lying through my tooth

On your floor we’re spilling margaritas
Mixed with coconut tequila
You’re dancing on the walls
I’m dancing on the ceiling
And he’s missing this feeling

Let’s dress in paisley robes
And curse the ones who broke our hearts
And never mention tipsy eyes
And all those little sparks

Will you let it all go?
Help me make rock ‘n’ roll?
Will you tear out a soul?
And stand on a heart?
Let go of a hand?
And not give a damn?
Will you love again?
I’m asking for a friend.
