January Friend - Lyrics by Goo Goo Dolls


Lyrics
Reach
For higher ground
About the way you look
The way you scream out loud
Mine
Just like the last time
It's all the same to me
She said
Chorus:
Let's pretend
My january friend
I'm wantin' you again
I wanna touch you
Every single heart that beats pretend
My january friend
I'm wantin' you again
I wanna touch you
Every single heart that beats
Cry
Don't cry out loud
You've gotta bear your cross
But never think too loud
And you're tied
Tied to the next time
You realize
Your crimes
Chorus
Time stood still
Monday morning yeah. . .
Showed me what I had to see
It's not the way I thought it should be
Oh yeah
You're my january friend
You're my january friend
You're my january friend
And every heart that beats pretend
My january friend
You're my january friend
You're my january friend
And every heart that beats tonight's pretend
