she’s a… friend to everyone, lover to only one
I won’t be that lucky one, cos he’s her only son

sweeter than the daylight
shining through pine trees
softer than kisses
carried on the summer breeze

cooler than ice cream
in the hot midday sun
calmer than the warm sea
glittering full of fun

she’s a friend to everyone, lover to only one
I won’t be that lucky one, cos he’s her only son

sumertime smooth
fall into ease
softness in her laughter
glitter in the breeze

there is hopeful touching
mellow afternoons
guitars played restlessly
before busy life resumes

she’s a friend to everyone, lover to only one
I won’t be that lucky one, cos he’s her only son

no seeds to grow
or depth to plow
there’s nothing here to sow
only denial to allow

retreat to your own space
go away to time
leave me another day
you were never really mine

she’s a friend to everyone, lover to only one
I won’t be that lucky one, cos he’s her only son

friend… it’s a special kind of love
friend… you fit me hand in a glove
friend… it’s not the name for me
friend… why couldn’t I see

she’s a friend to everyone, lover to only one
I won’t be that lucky one, cos he’s her only son
