best friend - Lyrics

Here we are just trying to be flatmates
Here we are just trying to sophisticate
Be an adult, trying not to fall in love
Be a human, trying not to stand up

Here we are just trying to be neighbors
You in bed, me still with the painters
Smoking at the window, at the magpies
Trying to work out what's the truth and what's the lie

I'm not saying that we will be best friends
But I took you dancing at the weekend
Tell your folks in bed you had to play
I tried to make you feel like the kids are playing pretend

I'm not saying that we can't be running mates
You run too fast for me, I try to keep the pace
What I lack in speed I make up for in the way I move my hips
And the way the sun comes out like the way I move my lips

So you won't want to miss
All the shapes that can make
It's a choice you want to take

Here we are just trying to be
Oh, here we are just trying not to
Fall in love
It's only human not to want to be alone
Here we are just trying to be
Oh, here we are just trying not to
Get too close

I'm a rented knee
I'll be your lock and fold
Tell me all your dirt
I'll never tell a soul
Tell me over steaming mac n cheese
Hold the tray above your knees
We can listen to the radio

I'm not saying I will kick you damn right
Stick with me and only hit the friend mark
There are other ways to feel you out
I can look into your soul
I can feed you all the love

I can save you now
Oh, and don't get me wrong
I'm digging my way in
I just like the game you're playing

Here we are just trying to be
Oh, here we are just trying not to
Fall in love
It's only human not to want to be alone
Here we are just trying to be
Oh, here we are just trying not to
Get too close

I'm not saying that we can't be dreamers
Here we are just trying to be neighbors
We can lie awake and watch the sky
Forget the truth, forget the lie
For the moment you're my best friend
