​Friends as Lovers, Lovers as Friends

This song is by Billy Corgan.

New York isle, wasn't mine
Was it me, or just my kind
Sinning softly, and talking cheap
Cause there's no place left to be
But a road that just goes on
To every leaving town
Friends as lovers
And loves and friends

Shall we dance, into the night
As the jukebox moans, and pours us tight
Friends and lovers
And lovers as friends
Cause there's no place left to be
Than wrapped around you now
In every passing town
Us as lovers, and us as friends

There's no prayer, by a dashboard light
Flagging ghosts and blowing signs
'Cause they say, you are the one
And there's no place left to be

Than where you stand right now
I know these leaving towns
Friends as lovers
And lovers as friends

To your back, I speak aloud
To your face, I'm only proud
We're friends with lovers
And lovers with friends

Darling boy (she says)
You're on my mind (she says)
I feel your skin (she says)
As though it's mine (she says)
The pain is sweet, too sweet to touch
And there's no place left to be
Than the shadow of your life
In every passing town
Friends as lovers
And lovers as friends
