The F-Word

The F-Word - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

We met when I was a freshman and she was a sophomore and we hit it off pretty well
I was still rocking a buzz cut…what the hell was I thinking?
But I guess she didn't mind it and it didn't take too long to realize that we really clicked
Fast forward two years and that's when it hit me: "Oh, this girl is perfect"

 

Don't know why it took me that long to see her in that way
But I think I missed my chance for romance 
Because now she'll always say

 

You're a really great friend
You're a really great friend
It's the nail in the coffin
And it happens way too often
Oh, what an unfortunate end
When you're a really great friend

 

Did I mention the fact that she's had a boyfriend this whole time?
They've been together for three years but oh her love was all but mine
With him out at school in Indiana while she was back at home with me
We shared so many moments that would make you scream why isn't this a thing?

 

Don't know why I got my hopes up it's always been this way
Did I even have a chance for romance? 
'Cause from the start that's what she'd say

 

You're a really great friend
(Real great friend)
You're a really great friend
(Real great friend)
It's the nail in the coffin
And it happens way too often
Oh, what an unfortunate end
When you're her really great friend
(Real great friend)
You're a really great friend
(Real great friend)
It's the nail in the coffin
And it happens way too often
Oh, what an unfortunate end
When you're her really great


Almost high school sweetheart
So close and yet so far
And it's too late to restart
Now we're miles apart
And I’m her really great almost high school sweetheart
So close and yet so far
And it's too late to restart
Now we're miles apart

 

Don’t know why it didn’t happen
Why’d it all end up this way?
Maybe I’ll still have a chance for romance 
But not today

 

'Cause I'm a really great friend
Yeah, I'm a really great friend
It's the nail in the coffin
And it happens way too often
Oh, what an unfortunate end
When you're her really great friend
(Real great friend)
You're a really great friend
(Real great friend)
It's the nail in the coffin 
And it happens way too often
It's the break in your heart
When you've been damned from the start
It's the deadly drop of potion
That's the poison in your ocean
It's the thorn in your side
That you know you can't abide
Oh, what an unfortunate end
(What an unfortunate end)
Got no love left to spend
Oh, what an unfortunate end
When you're her really great friend 
The end!
