Gotta Tell You

Story Behind The Song

The song is a lyrical thank-you both to friends who've been there for me even during hard time AND the emerging feeling/idea that somebody you don't actually know that well and just met is actually one of your best friends.

Was falling down again - I gotta tell you, friend
It wasn't until then I knew
I couldn't talk to them - that's the moment when
I found out in the end it's you

You don't know me yet - I feel like we just met
You're someone that I barely knew
You don't wanna split - when you listen to my shit
Even when I've had a drink or two

Everything's in play - I know that it's OK
There's nothing I can't say to you
I know you're gonna stay - it isn't just one-way
You know I'd act the same way too

You don't make a big deal - it's just the way you feel
Remember when they'd call it "blue"?
It's strange to confess - when life is such a mess
It's fun to be depressed with you

Life is strange, but compared to what
I don't wanna overstate it much
I have to say that my best friend is you
You can see when I need to talk
And it doesn't feel weird at all
It's just a thing that you and I can do
