Drums, The - Best Friend Lyrics




You are my best friend, but then you died
When I was 23 and you were 25
You are my best friend, but then you died
And how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?
Oh, how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

Oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

I had a dream of you, you were drifting away
You were sad and the ocean dripped away
And I know you're gonna be okay
'Cause I can see it in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
And I know I'm gonna survive, survive, survive, survive

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

Oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

  9. roy keene

    nice band mates i say

  11. Dizzmal

    When i hear my fav song play in my best friends house

  12. Tim Neave

    This and a few other of their tunes have made me happier than anything this year. Late adopter, but so glad to have made it here!

  13. Sovo Jo

  14. Willson Espinoza

    cuando mi hijo tenia como 2 le encantaba esta cancion siempre se la ponia hoy tiene 8 y la puse y solo mueve la cabeza pero a mi me encanta todavia esta rola saludos!!!

  15. Kevin Quintero

    2019😍♥️

  16. Lehlila Devandria

    Jonny Pierce is a legend!!!

  17. Lehlila Devandria

    Jonny literally is the perfect GenX frontman that has literally soaked up like a sponge every single nuance of the the 80's to absolute individualist perfection. He gets it. Because he lived it. There's a different sound when the millennial hipsters try this dynamic,and usually fail miserably.

  18. renzo590

    Classic tune.

  19. lil Doggo

    Memories I miss this

  20. William Gwillam

    Yams fammin gam.

  21. Haley Whorton

    who is the drummer :(

  22. Dan Maftei

    Man all these dancing comments but this song is so beautiful and bittersweet. "You were my best friend / And then you died / When I was 23 and you were 25 / And how will I survive? / And every day / I waited for you / On the hood of your car." Sometimes you just need something bouncy to cope.

  56. James Stilwell

    I love the Drums ... BUT, BUT ..... everyone listen to Psychedelic furs - heaven, and tell me it's more than just an influence it had on their sound. Open to debate, so no need for abuse, but to me that song sounds so so much like a lot of the Drums stuff.

  57. Irving Delgado Silva

    I love his dancing!!

  58. Tara G

    My most favorite song by The Drums. :-)

  59. David Tobar

  61. arturo Velasquez

  62. Alejandro Flores

    Can't believe this song is about to be a decade old, and it still sounds refreshing.
    Amazing

  63. Cesar Augusto

    Este. The drums 2011 es melhor que un día
    Voveras como todas as bandas?

  64. wizard 98

    This song is funny but at the same time is sad!

  65. Locuras con Atziri

    I❤ you

  66. David Bothwell

    Is this about him being a dog or cat who’s owner died?

  67. Jonathan S.

    2009/2010/2011 were awesome years

  70. Alfredo Barrera

    Ese Salim Vera es un loquillo. 😅

  71. Victimized Idiot

    It makes me sad watching this video now, it was like a premonition before on what's about to happen with the band. They all left and Jonny is the only one dancing for The Drums 😢.
