Perfection like this can’t be guaranteed
Lets just see what friendship actually needs
And if you ever do wrong I’m right behind you
If that devil doubt should come to find you

If fortune sails
If love derails
If all else fails
For a bed of nails
I wouldn’t mind being left up on that shelf
But since there’s only you and no one else

In need of DIY then I’m your guy
Don’t let those tears you cry stop you and I
If luck should quit this town
If conversation breaks down
I’ll be that back up call
I’ll swap this bed of roses
