Friend, Love

She says he's got a good side
He sure don't show it to me
She says that he's the one
But I am looking at what she doesn't see

Friend, love, you're blinded
Friend, love, open your eyes
Take a peek
At what is here
When your motives aren't nearly as clearly
Influenced by the outside wrapping
All the fancy exterior trapping
Hiding the things that matter to you
And what should matter to you is

Is he kind to those less fortunate?
Does he help those beaten down by fate?
Will he treat you the way you deserve
When all is tallied at the end of the day?

Friend, love, I think not
He doesn't want what you think
Friend, love, you're better than that
Don't be the kind of person we laughed at
Friend, love, don't lose your head
That boy clearly just wants you in bed
Friend, love, steer clear of that trap
Because, you see, you're important to me
And I want you to want someone who

Sees the goodness deep in your heart
Loves you for who you are
Though it seems incredibly cheesy
Don't fall for a guy that incredibly skeezy

He cares not who you are
He has other things on his mind
You're too sweet to be tough
And I'm afraid he'll be rough
So make sure you know
Who's on your side forever and always
Who will see you through to the end
Who's there with a listening ear
When you are through with your most recent dear

Friend, love, you've been blinded
Friend, love, open your eyes
See that you see
The motives of he
Match up with the idea you have of yourself
So
that
you
win
(in the end)

Wow:) This is really good.  I have a small band and we r in need of a new piece, so I was wondering if I could use it for our next gig.  All credits to u of course.

That would honestly be awesome. If I could get a recording, that would be similarly awesome
