I've Got This Friend...


We've all been in that position before. We want to tell someone what our true feelings are, but we're too nervous or scared of rejection. So rather than address our issues in the 1st person, we through out the infamous "I've got this friend..." phrase. Everyone knows you're really talking about yourself. But there is just something about being able to express your feelings when you're not directly attached to them that makes them a little easier to share. That's what I love about "I've Got This Friend" by The Civil Wars.

The story of these two cautious lovebirds who yearn for love but have a hard time admitting it really hits home with me. I hope you enjoy it, and pay close attention to the words. My favorite part is the bridge:

"Oh if the right one came, if the right one came along..."
