Duet Version with Sam Brown

There's something I want to ask you
Before it's too late
It's been on my mind
Since the first time we met
It scares me now more
Now there's more at stake
When it seems that we're so close
Yet you're so far away

What would you feel
If I got down on my knees
Would you hold it against me
Would you stand in line?
What would you do
If I opened up my heart to you
Would I just be another
When I'm wasting my time
Darling are we just good friends?

Could you turn me down gently
Would I be out of order
If I declared my true feelings
Or would you act out the part
Of the father confessor
Of the shoulder to cry on
We're always so close
Yet so far away

What would you do
If I got down on my knee to ya
Would you hold it against me
Would you stand me in line?
What would you do
If I opened up my heart to you
Would I just be another
When I'm a-wasting my time
Darling are we just good friends?

So are we left
To chance meetings
Is that all we can depend on?
Resigned to raise glasses
In anonymous cafes
Reciting our failures
As if we needed that proof of regret
Over what might have and what should have been
Darling are we just good friends?

What would you do
If I got down on my knee to you
Would you hold it against me
Darling aould you stand me in line?
What would you do
If I opened up my heart to you
Would I just be another
When I'm a-wasting his time
Darling are we just good friends?

Are we just good friends?
Just good friends?
And all we can rely on is just good friends


Live version (Poznan 1999)
