HELLO DARLIN’, COME RIGHT ON IN, IT’S NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN

LET ME HANG YOUR THINGS UP & THEN, GRAB A SEAT & TELL ME JUST HOW YOU’VE BEEN

NOW IT’S A STRUGGLE DARLIN’ I KNOW, SITTIN’ HERE EYE TO EYE

BUT I SAID A PRAYER BEFORE I ANSWERED THE DOOR & HONEY LET ME TELL YOU WHY


WHAT’S LEFT TO FIGHT ABOUT, WE’VE DONE IT ALL BEFORE

SO LET’S NOT SCREAM & SHOUT, WE CAN’T GO THROUGH THAT ANYMORE

WE ALL COULD DO WITHOUT THOSE PAINFUL SCENES HAPPENIN’ AGAIN

OH I KNOW IT’S HARD BUT DARLIN’ CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?


IN MY OPINION, THE KIDS ARE OKAY, THEY’RE ADJUSTIN’ IT TAKES TIME YOU KNOW

THEY’RE LOOKIN’ FORWARD TO SEE YOU TODAY, THEY’LL BE DOWN IN JUST A MINUTE OR SO

WHILE WE HAVE THIS MOMENT ALONE, THERE’S SOMETHIN’ THAT I WANNA SAY

THINGS MAY NEVER BE QUITE THE SAME BUT IN MY HEART YOU’LL ALWAYS STAY


WHAT’S LEFT TO FIGHT ABOUT, WE’VE DONE IT ALL BEFORE

SO LET’S NOT SCREAM & SHOUT, WE CAN’T GO THROUGH THAT ANYMORE

WE ALL COULD DO WITHOUT THOSE PAINFUL SCENES HAPPENIN’ AGAIN

OH I KNOW IT’S HARD BUT DARLIN’ CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?


WHAT’S LEFT TO FIGHT ABOUT, WE’VE DONE IT ALL BEFORE

SO LET’S NOT SCREAM & SHOUT, WE CAN’T GO THROUGH THAT ANYMORE

WE ALL COULD DO WITHOUT THOSE PAINFUL SCENES HAPPENIN’ AGAIN

I KNOW IT’S HARD BUT DARLIN’ CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?

OH I KNOW IT’S HARD BUT DARLIN’ CAN’T WE BE FRIENDS?
