A song dedicated to everyone I loathe but society says I have to hang out with.
"Who Said We Were Friends? (DEMO!)" lyrics & music by Mercy Bell
Demo video directed by Sara Olivia Moore
Got your invitation she’s bringing me along
Yeah it’s been a while since y’all were all involved
I should just be friends with you
Jesus Loves us both the same
Mea culpa is a latin phrase and it means I’ll take the blame
Folks say you’re in love with her
She’s the one that got away
When she kissed me at the last party
Your face turned deathly gray
You give me booze from your private stash
And invite me to watch the game
But getting closer to me won’t
Get you closer to my babe
Who said we were friends?
Brothers, buddies, guys?
I’ve been watching you undress
My baby with your eyes
I might be a nice fella
I’d buy a beer for this whole place
Mea Culpa, here’s a gulpa, my drink in your face.
Guess I’m kinda backwards
I bet that in LA
People’s exes go get drinks
Giggle, laugh, and play
My mom, my shrink, my preacher
Say let go of yesterday
But when pigs can fly, and I catch mama high,
Is the day that we can hang
All those hugs you give her
they last a little too long
but all those tales she tells about you
I might just tell your mom
i’m in arkansas and last night i tried real moonshine then my friends’ dad ate what looked like a dung beetle on a dare and then got another bud light while everyone freaked out. but i was thinking of all my brooklyn friends that’s what you guys should do with those roaches.
