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.
