Never Take Friendship Personal
by Anberlin



 

Do they not have pen or paper where you are

'cause I haven't heard from you in ages
I relive each memory
From time to time
Read notes exchanged
With all those scented pages
Its coming back
Its all coming back to me now

Tell me everything turned out alright
Cause Im where we said
That wed meet tonight
Does he treat you like you want?
Does he ask to take your hand?
Does he believe in dreams we talked about?
When with no music we danced

I thought you said that youd come find me
I thought you said youd be home by now
I heard you sang that youd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow

Dance by yourself and
Think of me when you do
Im not sure you understand
What this means to me
What you do to me
Im willing to prove
That youre the one
I regret to slip away
Now I know it was only you
That Ive been searching for
Been missing all this time

I thought you said that youd come find me
I thought you said youd be home by now
I heard you sang that youd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow

I thought you said that youd come find me
I thought you said youd be home by now
I heard you sang that youd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow

Let the past be past
Lets start today
Letters wont do
I need to see your face
Tell me where to meet
Ill tell you why we should be
(ill tell you why we should be)

I thought you said that youd come find me
I thought you said youd be home by now
I heard you sang that youd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow

I thought you said that youd come find me
I thought you said youd be home by now
I heard you sang that youd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow

Behind the Song:
'Seth Roberts, what a great voice. We once asked him to be in the band, he said no. I remember calling my friend J. Smith and asking her if the title was cheesy, she liked it, it stuck. This song is self explanatory, I remember telling someone that we should meet in Paris on a certain day if neither of us were seeing anyone. Well, we never met up, I wrote about it.' - Stephen Christian
