​Brand New Friend

This song is by Lloyd Cole and appears on the album Easy Pieces (1985).

Walking in the pouring rain
Walking with Jesus and Jane
Jane was in her turtleneck
I was much happier then

If I were to ask you
What would you do with yourself?
If I were to tell you
Would you just talk to yourself?

Am I asking, oh, for so much?
I'm not asking to be understood
Am I asking, oh. for so much?
I'm just looking for a brand new friend
A brand new friend

Walking in the pouring rain
Walking with Jesus and Jane
Jane was in her turtleneck
I was much happier then

Am I asking, oh. for so much?
You could do anything you wanted to
Am I asking, oh, for so much?
No, just something that I can hold down
'Cause it's all downhill, now

So, let me count the times that we swore and lied
That we'd tie ourself to the railway line
Let me count the times when of course we lied
Well we knew no better, it was no crime
Let me count the times

I, well, I don't know when I, when I'll be content
But I do know I need a brand new friend
