We're Just Friends Lyrics

2006 Off-Broadway
I Love You Because the Musical - We're Just Friends Lyrics


DIANA
We go out in the evening
We catch a movie, dinner too
We hang out with our buddies
The way two good friends do
We say goodnight
And that’s alright
If that’s alright with you
Friendship’s where this ends
‘Cause we’re just friends

JEFF
Who also make-out.

DIANA
Friends are like an old shirt
That always makes you smile

JEFF
It makes you feel all fuzzy inside
But it gets dirty once in a while

DIANA
A friend does to you
As you do unto them
Like Jesus recommends

BOTH
And we want to be good boys and girls
So that’s why we’re just friends…
With benefits

DIANA
We each do our own thing
‘Cause we’re not dating and that’s fine

JEFF
But every couple of evenings
Our things will intertwine

DIANA
If you’re friends I guess

JEFF
A little caress

DIANA
Or cunnilingus doesn't cross the line

BOTH
No!
Friendship’s where this ends ‘cause we’re just friends

JEFF
Who use chocolate syrup on each other in ways you never thought of before?

DIANA
Sure!

JEFF
We’ll be honest when we’re in the bedroom

DIANA
I’ll tell you if you’re too fast or too slow

JEFF
Thank you!

BOTH
People say this way doesn’t work
But, I know that’s not so

JEFF
If I suck, I wanna know

BOTH
We will keep this our little secret
Why explain what can’t be explained?
We don’t need a defense
‘Cause this all makes perfect sense
In fact, it’d be stranger if we abstained

We won’t let this get weird

JEFF
I’ll stand hard

DIANA
I’ll stay resolved

JEFF
I won't take you for granted

DIANA
I won’t get emotionally involved

BOTH
I have lots of friendships
But this one transcends
All the ones in which I don’t get laid
And that’s why we’re just friends…
With benefits

Hmmm…. Mmm…
And that’s why we’re just friends

DIANA
Who see each other naked.

BOTH
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
And that’s why we’re
Just friends
Just friends
Just friends
Just friends
