Have you ever been stabbed in the back
By someone you thought was really cool
Did they steal your heart or was it money 
Or was it lies they told
 Strangers just disguised as your friends  Never again ?cause now you know

That friends will let you down
 Friends won't be around 
When you need them most
 Where are your friend 

 Friends are hard to find
Friends, yours and mine
I'm talkin' ?bout your friends 

 Smiles they hide behind  Never know what's on their mind
 Could be true deception  Jealousy and envy reign 
They never want to see you get ahead 
They just hold you back

 Friends will let you down
 Friends won't be around 
When you need them most
 Where are your friend, oh, oh

 Friends are hard to find
Friends, yours and mine
I'm talkin' ?bout your friends 

 Friends are hard to find, so be careful 
You could find an inch or mile if I pay you
But some ain't that bad, but one might back stab
To get the fake tips of what one might have
Bite the hand that feeds you, leave the people who need you
For those who hold you back and mislead you
To be a needle, don't get lead on unleaded 
The wrong direction, a dead end's next then
Heed the detour, life's like a seesaw 
The ups and downs, and I'll bet there'll be more
 Potholes and obstacles in our path, that's righteous 
At times you need a hand to fight this
Way of life, straighten up, take the door to the placid 
And don't you act two-faced
?Cause jealousy and envy, and you still act friendly 
You could find the end and pretend to be

 Friends will let you down
 Friends won't be around 
When you need them most
 Where are your friends, yeah

 Friends are hard to find
Friends, yours and mine
I'm talkin' ?bout your friends 

Used to me kiss me, tell me you missed me
But now you try to glaze me, play me and diss me
Uh, wide awake, ready to break, so we argue 
What happened to the kisses, and, "Why, how are you?"
 Forgot about the times when I rhymed when I bathed you
 Dreams was the only little things that I gave you
You still ain't thankful, you're still complainin'
Used to be a quiet storm, but now it's rainin'
 Farther than ever, I'm thinkin' whether 
If we should be friends, let it end, is it better 
To forget or remember, your body's tender 
The rhymes that I send her, makes her surrender 
The feeling of capture, caught in a rapture 
No woman can match ya, so when I'm lookin' at ya
 Paint a perfect picture so you can remember me
But you can find the end if you pretend to be

 Friends will let you down
 Friends won't be around 
When you need them most
 Where are your friends, oh, oh

 Friends are hard to find
Friends, yours and mine
I'm talkin' ?bout your friends 

 Friends will let you down
 Friends won't be around 
When you need them most
 Where are your friends, yeah

 Friends are hard to find
Friends, yours and mine
