lyrics

VERSE1

Tonight was going to be the night
I tell you that I love you
and it all will turn out right.
You're everything I've wanted and more
and I really hope that I'm the one
that you've been looking for.
But when I went to tell you
when I tried to make you see.
You said "We'll always be good friends
but that's all we'll ever be".
Well I don't think so.
That's not good enough for me.

CHORUS

'Cause I don't wanna be your friend
though you may disagree.
It's easier to hate you for what you're doing to me.
I'd rather have it all or nothing
one day you'll understand.
I don't wanna be your friend
but I'd love to be your man.

VERSE2

This isn't how I hoped it would end.
You tell me that you love me
but only as a friend.
You said you just don't see me that way.....no.
Nice guys finish last
At least that's what they say.
Well what am I supposed to do
now that you put me in my place?
'Can we go back to the way things were?'
How can you say that to my face?
Well don't you worry.
I'll be giving you your space.

CHORUS

'Cause I don't wanna be your friend
though you may disagree.
It's easier to hate you for what you're doing to me.
I'd rather have it all or nothing
one day you'll understand.
I don't wanna be your friend
but I'd love to be your man.

Guitar and Organ solos

CHORUS

'Cause I don't wanna be your friend
though you may disagree.
It's easier to hate you for what you're doing to me.
I'd rather have it all or nothing
one day you'll understand.
I don't wanna be your friend
but I'd love to be your man.
