A songwriters notebook

Friend of a Friend (revised)

Hey friend of a friend
I don't like what you just said
but there must be something to redeem you
must be something I'm not gettin'
are you a husband and father?
are you really good and kind?
or are you just that stupid all the time?
oh, friend of a friend
I took a chance on you you know
any friend of my amigo
gets an awful lot of rope
are you playing games with words
just to try and get a rise?
or are you this annoying all the  time?
Chorus
oh,on the internet we met
so it's hard for me to  know
what there is that makes you more than I can see.
Do you rescue dogs and children?
donate money to the poor?
there must be more to you than seems to be
Friend of a friend
did you even read your words
before you spewed them out like vomit
into the wider world?
Are you cautious in real life
conscientious and refined?
or are you just an asshole all the time?
Chorus
oh,on the internet we met
so it's hard for me to  know
what there is that makes you more than I can see.
Do you give your time to strangers?
have the patience of a saint?
there must be more to you than seems to be
Friend of friend
I really wish to understand
I strive for empathy and grace
I want to be that kind of man
I could block you from my feed
but you would still weigh my mind
please tell me your not really like this all the time.
please tell me your not really like this all the time.
