Not Gonna Be Friends

Everyone keeps asking if I’m fine
I say sure but it’s a lie, it’s a lie
You’re in love with somebody else
Didn’t think you’d recover so quickly
Thought I’d have time to make you mine, but you found another guy

Now you wanna be friends, but I’m not gonna wish you well
I want to be the guy you kiss goodnight
Tell him he can go to hell, cuz I’m not gonna be friends
As long as you’re with him you won’t see me again
So is this goodbye

I’m thinking ‘bout packing up and leaving
Find a place to make a brand new start
Try to leave my memories of you behind
I’ve gotten by on my own this far anyway
How could I think you would ever have given me a chance

Now you wanna be friends, but I’m not gonna wish you well
I want to be the guy you kiss goodnight
Tell him he can go to hell, cuz I’m not gonna be friends
As long as you’re with him you won’t see me again
So is this goodbye

And when I asked you for a dance, you didn’t have to laugh
When all I’ve done is treat you well
Why’d I think that you’d be different from everybody else

Now you wanna be friends, but I’m not gonna wish you well
I want to be the guy you kiss goodnight
Tell him he can go to hell, cuz I’m not gonna be friends
As long as you’re with him you won’t see me again
So is this goodbye

about

Paisley Fields New York

Paisley Fields writes country music. His songs are tender and authentic, but also pretty good with a joke. They’re mindful of tradition, but deeply informed by his singular background -- as a teenage Midwestern church pianist, a Manhattan piano bar survivor, and a touring member of pioneering queer country outfit, Lavender Country. ... more
