Please excuse my religion
Excuse the ceremony and the show
When I first gave in to your advances
You were wanting to get closer than I'd know

But I'll allow it for a moment
For just a moment I'll come near
Long enough to say those words
That all men are taught to fear

I think we'd be better off as friends
I think that should be where it ends
There's no complicated reason just as simple as sin
I think we'd be better off as friends

Please excuse my reluctance
Turn your eyes away from my embarrassed grin
Never gone this far before
Don't think I could ever go this way again

So I'll just raise my head
And look deep into your eyes
And offer you those words
I've been conditioned to despise

I think we'd be better off as friends
I think that should be where it ends
There's no complicated reason just as simple as sin
I think we'd be better off

I wanted flowers
You were buying me a ring
I wanted candy
You were giving everything, yeah yeah

Oh, you took my breath away
Don't think that I have denied it
But this heart you've stolen, sir
Do you think we could divide it

I think we'd be better off as friends
I think that should be where it ends
There's no complicated reason just as simple as sin
I think we'd be better off, yeah

I think we'd be better off as friends
I think that should be where it ends
There's no complicated reason just as simple as sin
I think we'd be better off as friends, as friends, just friends

Oh, we could be friends
