It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (29)



Yeah, you still kiss me, but it's just on the cheek
Yeah, you still kiss me, but it's just on the cheek
Yeah, you still kiss me sometimes, but it's just on the cheek
You pull away so easily

And I still call you, but I get your machine
And I still call you, but I get your machine
And if I'm lucky I guess, I get your roommate answering
But you're at the bar, or at Gene's

And we go to dinner, but you won't hold my hand
We sit at the same table, but we don't play with our feet
Yeah, we still go to dinner sometimes, but we don't sneak a kiss
When the waitress turns around

And we still watch movies, but we don't share the couch
And we still rent movies, but we don't share the couch
Yeah, we still watch movies sometimes, but you don't lay in my lap
The plot is slow, take a nap

And you even stay over, but now we stay in our clothes
Yeah, you'll even sleep over, but now we stay in our clothes
Yeah, you even sleep over sometimes, but we stay in our clothes
I'm only there so that you're not alone

And you say that I hurt you, in a voice like a prayer
Yeah, you say that I've hurt you, and your voice is like a prayer
Yeah, well maybe I hurt you sometimes, but let's contrast and compare
Lift up your shirt, the wound isn't there

I guess that your truth, is just the ghost of your lies
I guess your kind of truth, is just the ghost of your lies
Yeah, your kind of truth, darling, is just the ghost of your lies
I see through them all the time
So I'm pouring some whiskey, I'm gonna get drunk
Yeah, I'm pouring myself some whiskey, I'm going to get really fucking drunk
I'm pouring some whiskey right now, I'm going to get so, so drunk
That I pass out, forget your face, by the time I wake up.

I offer thee | Reviewer: JustAnotherOneOfYourFans | 4/16/12

This song made me tear up for a bit when I first heard it. I mean, it's just so, so fucking sad. It doesn't help the fact that the singer's voice is freaking shaking and trembling with all of the emotions that he didn't bother to cover up...

From that then on, I discovered more of his songs and I grew to love each....

And since I just recently discovered this song, and found out a terrible news about one of my favorite cosplayers and his relationship to his both mutual-feeling two lovers, (Their relationship consists of three people, so yes, two lovers.)AND I WAS FUCKING CRASHED, BASHED AND BATTERED inside because I felt so for him. My heart was reaching out to him. He was SO miserable... *sigh*... So I offer this you, LittleUkeBoy, even though this dilemma of yours is like a year ago... I only found out just now, so...

Yes... This is still for you.

I love this song.

I've been friends with pretty much all of my exes. It's tough. In a couple days I have to meet one of them to talk about The State Of Our Relationship and I'm bracing myself to hurt all over again.

This song is keeping me going.

Need and Want | Reviewer: Jane | 7/2/10

This reminds me of everything bad in my life.
He says it better than it feels.
But its like daggers, daily, being shoved into my chest.
We both hurt each other. But we can never leave each others side. Its stupid human chemistry and I hate it. But I love this song.

Perfect | Reviewer: Elle | 5/2/10

This song, is just the perfect song, if you've ever had a breakup where, the person wants to still be friends, it's the hardest fucking thing, ever. Especially, if the breakup isn't mutual.

The only thing bad I have to say about this song, is that it captures everything, everything that people try to forget.

Good | Reviewer: G | 1/2/10

I thought this song was quite amusing
I can't necessarily connect the same exact way
not through bf and gf relationships but through friendships
But my friend sent me this song and more than half of his life is hurt dealing with the same exact experiences as the song tells.

:( | Reviewer: alia | 9/20/09

i first found the first day of my life.. then this song. my boyfriend broke up with me about 4 months ago. we still live in the same building though. i really loved him, and i still love him the same way. but it seems like he'll never love me again. this song just makes me bawl especially when they talk about watching movies. because that used to be our thing and lay in each others laps.. and now we do just watch movies.. cause we have the same friends.. but its not the same. i keep telling myself if you love someone once you can love them again... even though i know i shouldnt. it hurts.

. | Reviewer: Ashley | 7/27/09

theres always tension yet whether either one wants to admit it or not.people never do what they want, they only do what they think is best in the long run.sometimes..you have to be where you feel you belong..maybe thats really what youre suppose to do.

Relatable | Reviewer: chelsieee | 5/5/09

At the time when I first heard this song, I hadn't been in a relationship yet. Despite that, I was able to still really connect to the lyrics. It makes me cry everytime I listen to this song because after breaking up with my first boyfriend, I never really realized how much I hurt him. It felt like I had been hit in the heart a million times because of the pain I felt knowing I caused him to feel.

Broken and Vulnerable. | Reviewer: Chris S-T | 4/16/09

The first time i heard this song i felt like id been punched in the heart.

Anyone who has stayed friends with someone who broke their heart can relate to this. Somehow you feel as broken and vulnerable as you did at the time the wound as raw as ever.

Almost like a bruise that never fades.

aww | Reviewer: Kaycee | 2/8/09

i remember the first time i heard this song i was crying so hard at the end even though i couldnt relate at the time. but now this song explains everything right now and it still makes me cry as hard as i did the first time i heard it.

heartache | Reviewer: hasir | 2/5/09

this song evokes so much pain in me. hearing it hurts so much. my girlfriend of 4 years says we just arent compatible, idk what to think.

we sit on my couch where we used to watch movies and cuddle, but we dont hold each other anymore. we see each other and just hug, no kiss.

its horrible.. this song is really like my anthem. it makes everythin feel better, i love this song

___ | Reviewer: jfdslfhuosdjilf | 1/29/09

this song makes me wana die
i can relate to that james guy in a big way
i just broke up with my bf after 3 years
we talked about getting married and kids everyday
and now he doesnt want me anymore
he says we might get back together someday
but deep down i know that will never happen
and he was my best friend
and this song makes me cry hard

Lost love | Reviewer: Amanda | 1/4/09

My ex and I loved listening to Bright Eyes together. He got me hooked on them. We broke up awhile ago and this song is exactly what we are like now..I just recently came across this song and it is so weird how much this fits. You can tell they know what it is like to go through a break up.

Relating.. | Reviewer: James | 10/24/08

Every verse in this song is like the story of me and my ex..

I went out with my girlfriend for 2 years and we broke up last year.. We still love each other.. we tried being friends and hanging out together but i knew i was there for different reasons than she was.. she was just scared of being alone after we had spent so much time together and everything she did reminded her of me, and i was there cause i hoped we would get back together.

We started sleeping with each other for a while afew months after we broke up.. but she didn't want this i could tell but we couldnt help it.. but we stopped and then when i used to sleep at her place we just lay there with clothes on.. one of our favourite things was watching movies and just being with each other but we couldnt even do that anymore.. so we argued about this stuff and it just made us grow further apart..

I called her but it wasnt how it used to be, she used to be the one always calling me.. but now when i called her she didnt answer all the time.

I did some horrible things to her i'll never forget or forgive myself for and she won't ever forget about.. so we can't be together. I know these things are inexcusable and i know i did wrong but she did some bad things too, the only thing close to understanding how i feel is this verse..

"And you say that I hurt you, in a voice like a prayer
Yeah, you say that I've hurt you, and your voice is like a prayer
Yeah, well maybe I hurt you sometimes, but let's contrast and compare
Lift up your shirt, the wound isn't there"

she broke up with me because of the things i did to her, even though i'll never love anyone as much as i loved her, and that is something you can't comprehend unless you've been there...

sometimes your memories of the things you've done and the things that happened can hurt so much more than anything physical or 'real' in life. Although she will never understand that, and i don't expect her to.
