Just Good Friends (Close) [Dick/Usher/Boult/Simmonds]

There's something I want to ask you
Before it's too late
It's been on my mind since the first time we met
It scares me now more, now there's more at stake
It seems we're so close yet so far away

Could you turn me down gently
Would I be out of order
If I declared my true feelings
Or do I act out the part
Of the father confessor of the shoulder to cry on
We're always so close yet so far away

What would you do if I got down on my knees to you?
Would you hold it against me?
Would you stand in line?
What would you do if I opened my heart to you?
Would I just be another who's wasting his time?
Darling are we just good friends?

Do I really need to ask you
I'm sure that you know by now
Do we just play a game where we try to pretend
That all that's between us is all that's between us
And all we can rely on is being just good friends

What would you do if I got down on my knees to you?
Would you hold it against me?
Would you stand in line?
What would you do if I opened my heart to you?
Would I just be another who's wasting his time?
Darling are we just good friends?

So are we left to chance meetings?
Is that all we can depend on?
Resigned to raise glasses in anonymous cafes
Reciting our failures as if we needed that proof or regret
Over what might have and what should have been
Darling, are we just good friends?

What would you do if I got down on my knees to you?
Would you hold it against me?
Would you stand me in line?
What would you do if I opened up my heart to you?
Would I just be another who's wasting his time?
Are we just good friends,
Tell me, darling are we just good friends?
