​Friends with Benefits

This song is by Jim O'Rourke and appears on the album Simple Songs (2015).

Nice to see you once again
Been a long time my friends
Since you crossed my mind at all

There's no need to beat about
Not hard to figure out
This ain't no social call

It's been quite a long, long time
But not enough to find a line
To get me going once again

Just one word I could respect
But then what do I expect?
You missed that boat a long time ago

And would you mind
Keeping your hands inside?

I am friends with so many
Of the dead
Who already
Take a lot of space
In my head

I hear from them
Every morning
About all of their moaning
Must be tired by now
Of where they are

I sense that you are not so sure
Of taking the grand tour
Without some kind of guarantee

I'll make this easier on you
Just let me walk you through
Relax and take my lead

And if it feels a little strange
I won't leave you shortchanged
Don't worry, this one's on me

And would you mind
Keepin' your hands inside?

I am friends with so many
Of the dead
Who already
Take a lot of space
In my head

I hear from them every morning
About all of your moaning
You must be tired by now
Of where you are

There are friends already waiting
For the space that you're containing
Keep your hands inside
It isn't far
