I’ve heard all you’ve said…I’m touched
Your heart feels squashed
Don’t let your spirit be crushed
Just let the pain be washed
(Upset) Oh…I’m doing it again!
This disguise I must squash

They hurt you every time
You cry all the time
You weep on my shoulders e-v-e-r-y time
I cry with you sometimes
(Angry) I’m done!
This is a crime!

I’ve loved you for so long
You put me in a zone I don’t belong
My heart you’ve hung
(Teary-eyed) That’s just wrong!
I’m now your tag-along
But not for long

You call me friend
But my heart you apprehend
“A true friend to the end”
 (Scoffs) What a fool I’ve been!
I’ve been in this zone far too long…why…I really can’t comprehend
So all I’ve done is pretend

But today I draw the line
This zone I decline
I’m not your kin…stop piercing my heart like a porcupine
I’ve waited twelve years for you to be mine
I’m tired of being sidelined
(Walks away) I’m out!
