  • Now I rest my head from
    Such an endless dreary time
    A time of hopes and happiness
    That had you on my mind
    Those days are gone, and now it seems
    As if I'll get some rest
    But now and then I'll see you again
    And it puts my heart to the test

    [Chorus]
    So when are all my problems going to end?
    I'm understanding now that
    We are only friends
    To this day I'm asking why
    I still think about you

    As the days go on I wonder
    (Will this ever end?)
    I find it hard to keep control
    When you're with your boyfriend
    I do not mind if all I am is
    Just a friend to you
    But all I want to know right now
    Is if you think about me too

    [Chorus: x2]
