Fairweather Friend (lyrics & your thoughts)
« on: March 18, 2009, 09:02:43 am »
 Fairweather Friends lyrics!!!



------------------

Say you see through the folly
But you do it for the fame
I'm fighting the jet stream
Drinkin' cheap wine on airplanes

You're in L.A., not Chicago
Key under mat, I walk the dog, order in, home alone

Found your letter on a full moon Sunday night
On your knees in ink you offered a ring, a real life
Pour the vodka, and it dulls sharp knives
Beautiful poetry, but the letter isn't for me

And you didn't really mean it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't mean to do it
And magical thinking gets us by

You sing for the after show, those candy colored lips
But your age is showing, and you gotta work harder for it
It's always easier with freshman
I'm just as clever, it's not technically cheating if

I didn't really mean it
So you don't have to believe it
If I didn't mean to do it
And magical thinking gets us by

And you're fragile as porcelain
fragile as porcelain

If you didn't really mean it
And I don't have to believe it
You didn't mean to do it
Then magical thinking gets us by

Gotta get by
Gotta get by
Whatever get us by

We're fair-weather friends

I think these are some of her better lyrics.  Love it!  (And Stephen is an ass.)

LULz... I mean the guys age is REALLY showing...

And yeah I second the Fools Like Me thought. But I really hope it remains the same... I know its stupid but some of her songs sound so amazing raw and I don't like the "unintentional" over production.

i agree, i listen so much more to her live songs from heroes and thieves than the record itself, they are so good they don't really need anything adding to them!

and HA sj. those lyrics are amazing...'it's always easier with freshmen' muah ha ha

Excuse me. But THAT WAS THE FUCKING SHIT!
Sorry. Loser fake-Irv moment.
But seriously. This song is amazing. And the recording is great. Kudos to the videographer and kulp for the lyrics.

I wish I'd been there. I feel like crying about that. Haha

This song is awesome. The melody of the song along with the lyrics really get stuck in your head.

The last time I was this excited about a new song V did in concert before we heard a studio version of it was "She Floats" with the whale sounds, lol.
For all you broken hearted lovers lost, go find another one. 'Cause you know time won't wait and you'll be late, white rabbits on the run...
