He says you want a brand new start
She says that we've grown apart
I know a thing or two I speak from the heart
Don't insult me with what your friends say
After all that we've been through
You'd owe that to me like I'd owe that to you
So go your own way and in time you'll see
Exactly who your best friend was

Your wise friends might say
This is how we survive
But I know in my own mind
Can't you see it's a clever disguise
This friendly advice

We'd come such a long long way
I don't give a damn baby what they say
Your mind is full of wonders and that's o.k.
Didn't mean to lay your dreams so low

And now you've made your choice
I believe in my heart I know you like nobody else
I know in my mind in time you'll see
Exactly who your real friend was

Friendly Advice

And your jive friends might say
This is how we survive
But I know im my own mind
Can't you see it's a clever disguise

I saw a film just the other day
About two people who reminded me of us
It's funny in this age of illusion
It's hard to tell what's fact or fiction

Friendly Advice

And your jive friends might say
This is how we survive
But I know in my own mind
Can't you see it's a clever disguise
That it's only friendly advice
And I hope that you'll see in time
Just who your best friend was baby
