Song Description

Some people are good at complimenting you, but then their actions don't always match their words...and you're left wondering what you're getting out of the friendship.

Story Behind the Song

After a long, dysfunctional friendship with a guy who often used me to get ahead, I realized that I can't be there for him anymore.

Lyrics

Your words, your smile
There's some things in this world
that I can't deny.
Smooth talker, when will you follow through?
Sing me a melody, yeah,
Sing me something new.
'Cause I can't be the music for you.

Your eyes never lie.
They tell me things that your mouth won't recognize.
The past is over, what will your future bring?
Ask yourself, my friend, does this have a familiar ring?
'Cause I can't be the song that you sing.

And with your old guitar
You strummed your way right through my heart.
I should've known by now
that you'd perfected this art.

So now, what do we do?
I can't help you
If you don't believe in you.
The more I'm with you
The more that it feels wrong.
After all these years,
I know that we don't belong
'Cause I can't be the hook to your song.

And with your old guitar
You strummed your way right through my heart.
I should've known by now
that you'd perfected this art.

'Cause I can't be the music for you.
