Dam Good Friend

It's quite scary sitting in the studio with one microphone knowing that you have one "take" to record a song and that you can't make any mistakes because things can't be chopped and changed or auto-tuned when they're recorded in this way. But I knew that this is how the song had to be recorded.

As the final official song on the Mini-P (the remaining five songs are re-mastered singles) this one had to be special. I wanted it to be a conversation, such that when you listen to the song you may expect me to be sitting in your headphones but what I end up doing is sitting right across from you, talking to you through the phrases.

Modern life and relationships can seem a bit hopeless at times and I often feel ridiculous trying to sort my way through. I can't be the only one that's worked hard sending out a message to someone online only to discover they don't use that site any more or to misinterpret a txt. Sometimes I question if the relationship is one-sided, other times I worry that I'm not pulling my weight. Its messy and bewildering, but so very worth every bit for those perfect moments where it all makes sense and you can feel in every clumsy spill of words you're on the same page.

Lyrics

Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll stay online for ages, I’ll think what I should say
You probably barely read it but I’ll write it anyway
You log off conversations when I’m just about to send
You’re lucky I still bother I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll call the phone it disconnects, I’ll even try and send you txts
It takes a week to even get in touch enough for us to set
A place and a date but you’ll show up late in the end
And I’ll just sit and I’ll just wait cause I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

We’ll find a place and order drinks, you always get that one that stinks
I always laugh and ask you why then you always let me have a try
You won’t get through that single glass even though we’ll spend
Half the day in the bar acting like we’re dam good friends
Dam good friends

Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend

We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But man, I think I love you, you’re just the best dam friend
