I Wish

If we had been friends

Our lives would be different

We wouldn’t pretend

To feel so alone

I wish we were friends

Back when we were lonely

We would’ve been laughing

And nobody would’ve hurt

If we had been friends

Way back in the beginning

When bad stuff was brewing

We would’ve moved through it

We would’ve been friends

And things would’ve been

Simpler, times would’ve been

Better than they were

I’m glad that we met

But I wish things were simpler

I wish life was easier

And that you didn’t have to pretend

To be fine, to be happy

To uplift yourself and others

I wish we had been friends, just us

Ah, but–

After a while

You would feel smothered
