about

A friend of mine in college wanted to be friends with a girl in her class. She described this young woman as insightful and hilarious, someone who seemed like she would have been abused. I don't often hear people talk about mystique in such a direct way while simultaneously being under its spell so I ran with that, drawing on my own friend crushes for inspiration.

lyrics

How did we never meet?
You come out when I go to sleep
I see you standing on the corner
Gotta let you know I like your persona

You’ve dropped out of the best high schools,
Smoked a lot of drugs and been abused
That’s why I want to be friends with you uhuh

How did we never meet?
We grew up on the same dark street
I see plain clothed hippies outside your house
I see smoke rings from a car seat couch

You come from where the sidewalks bend
Where weathered boots and dry leaves blend
Where decades don’t divide or end uhuh

People who say they don’t want to be cool
They’ve never had a friend crush like you
They’ve never had a friend crush like you
So What I’m gonna do is be friends with you

How did we never meet?
You come out when I go to sleep
I see you standing on the corner
Gotta let you know I like your persona

How did we never meet?
We grew up on the same dark street
You come out when I go to sleep uhuh

I’m gonna be your friend
I’m gonna be your friend
I’m gonna be your friend
I’m gonna be your friend
