Joan Jett And The Blackhearts - Fake Friends Lyrics




When you were down they were never there
When you're all alone you really get to learn
If you get back up they gonna come around
All the sycophants they love to make romance
To the ugly sound of em tellin you what you
Wanna hear an you pretend

Cuz they all agree you're supposed to have a better life
But you're feelin worse
An they build you up till you fool yourself that you're
Something else an its like a curse cause
You cant live up to what they made of you
An they tell you that you're losin friends

Losin friends, losin friends
Ya got nothin to lose
Ya don't lose when you lose fake friends

Ya go an tell em you were king of the hill
When ya need a hand - that was yesterday
Ya see em laugh while you're on your knees
An it breaks your heart cuz ya gave so much
An ya cant believe that ya hit the gound an
Ya notice ya been losin friends

Losin friends, losin friends
Ya got nothin to lose
Ya don't lose when you lose fake friends

[repeat chorus]

    Is it wrong for me to envy other people's friendship?
