lyrics

how many friends do you have
do you ever use the term’ best friend’
how do you know if someone is your best friend
or is it more of a feeling than a culmination of actions
sometimes i feel like i have no friends sometimes i feel like i have too many
i prefer the latter
when i am having a particularly hard time it is nice to have multiple options
people to use as sounding boards
use?
am i just using people
what do i bring into their lives? i talk about myself too much am often negative
sometimes i am kind
what would happen if everyone just turned their back on me one day
am i ready for that?
do you ever just sit and think
about how much your body hurts
every ache a possible underlying illness what if one day it comes true
what if it’s terminal
who is going to be there for you?
are you enough, for yourself?
are you going to be able to hold
your own hand through that experience until the very end

--

I need you more than you need me I can learn to live with it
Can i live with it
Can i live with it
I need you more than you need me Do you need me
At all?
