a letter from a friend lyrics – emilie autumn

Loading...

precious thing
i long for nothing more
than to be your friend
but i am not good
as you are
for i think
where i should feel
and i am not
innocent
as you would think
for i try
to turn your head
and i never stop
and i see you happy
and i wish you well
but in my wish
is my invitation
to a different dream
and i wonder
if i care for you at all
not to leave you alone
where you are
content
and i long for nothing more
than to be your friend
but if you accept my gift
you will ruin it
and i will not give you
what i promised
because
i can’t
but i will always
offer
and i will always
deny it
because i have a most convenient
guise
of friendship
should you slip
i should slay you
like all the others
and still i rain
and say “walk my way”
because i adore
where i have no right
but i ask you to become
worse than you are
and neglect to mention
that i adore the part of you
that does not
love me
for i long for nothing more
than to be your friend
yet i long for everything
friends will never be
i think i may be
cruel
but if i harm none i am
only evil
and it hurts not to know if i am
terrible
or only
in love
