Brijs: Friends feat. Dandelion
Brijs: Friends feat. Dandelion Lyrics:
Nine days since I saw you and three more ’til I see you again
We end our usual phone call and fall asleep just after ten
I leave a set of my keys somewhere safe for you to use
And I don’t have to ask if you need me ’cause I know you do
We could be nothing more than friends, but I think it’s something more than that
Your friends say you’re an angel and I guess I would have to agree
Your manner puts a light to anything that darkens me
I could shake myself but I know you will never fall out
And even if they deem it a fools hope, I will never doubt your love.
We could be nothing more than friends,
but I think it’s something more than that.
Written and produced by Brijs at the Marble Club.
