Lyrics
Sometimes the very best of friends just have to disagree
I've seen the very best of friends part forever bitter company
And you and I, we've had our share of ups and downs
But we've seen each other through
Though I have to say I always thought I was a better friend than you
You've let me down in so many little ways
You apologise and I always accept
'Cause I forgive but I don't forget

When you were hurt I took your pain, yeah I soaked up all your rage
And there were times you did the same for me, though you always complained
When all the others wrote you off I defended you, I stuck with you like glue
You're so generous and so completely selfish and I always kind of liked that about you
But this is one too many times you've treated me like a doormat
Oh I'll forgive but I won't forget

Dying comes at any time, living has no rules
Forgiving may get you favours but forgetting's just for fools

I can't believe she fucked you here and then fed me full of lies
Why don't I go and get her now
And you can fuck her again right before my eyes
Then you two can have each other
You deserve each other I bet
And I'll forgive but I won't forget
I won't forget
I'll forgive but I won't forget
