Make an Effort

It’s been quite a while since I heard from you
Just what have you been up to?
Yeah, it’s been far too long
Such an occasion I had to ring a gong
But once again it was me who had to say a word
Otherwise I fear from you I never would have heard again
Oh, I fear I never would have heard from you again
Some friend...
Some friend you are
Just another scar I can show off as I sing this song
I just wanted you to make an effort
Hey!
Make make an effort
Make an effort
Make make an effort
Just pick up the phone or open up your laptop
Dial, tap, or click away
I only want to hear what you have to say
Is there any chance I can salvage this friendship, or what’s left of it?
All you gotta do is make an effort, and that’s it
~
Things started out mutual
You and I would talk routinely like it was a ritual
Then it began to cycle back and forth
It was all about me and then it was all about you then back to me
If you think I’ve got you trapped then say so and I’ll set you free then I’ll leave you be ... jee... z
All the time when we were shifting poles like south to north
I began to start having my doubts about you
That you weren’t a true [friend]
Since you didn’t make an effort
Hey!
Make an effort
Make make an effort
Make an effort
Make make an effort
If you don’t want us to become estranged, dial, type, or click away
Perhaps even write me a letter
Just make an effort, yeah
~
I want to stay friends with you
But sometimes you make that such a hard thing to do
Everything starts to become one-sided
Our efforts are not equally divided
I tried not to be sore [about it]
Maybe you think that I’m a bore
I guess I bit off more than I can chew
Long ago I should have decided
I don’t wanna be friends anymore
Unless you
Make an effort
Make make an effort
Make an effort
Make make an effort
Just dial, type, or click away
And tell me what you have to say
That’ll count as an effort to me
An effort to me
An effort to me
Oh, to be friends again
Would fill me with glee
