Lyrics

A bond of trust has been abused

Something of value may be lost Give up your job Squander your cash Be rash Just hold on to your friends

There are more than enough To fight and oppose Why waste good time Fighting the people you like Who will fall defending your name? Don't feel so ashamed To have friends

But now you only call me When you're feeling depressed When you feel happy I'm so far from your mind My patience is stretched My loyalty vexed You're losing all of your friends

Hold on to your friends Hold on to your friends Resist or move on Be mad, be rash Smoke and explode Sell all of your clothes Just bear in mind: There just might come a time When you need some friends
