Lisa Loeb — “Best Friend” Lyrics


Another from my iTunes collection that didn’t have lyrics online, so I transcribed them. More lyrics I’ve transcribed are here.

Lisa Loeb — Best Friend

Your hands were in your pockets,
Your hat over your eyes;
You didn’t seem to know anybody
And neither did I.

Then they started introductions —
The name game all around.
Everybody else took it seriously,
But you and me, we laughed until we cried.

When I first met you,
I didn’t think I liked you.
But now that I know you,
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.

I am from the city,
From the middle of nowhere,
And we don’t talk to strangers;
Don’t talk to anyone who’s there.

I like dogs and you like cats.
I wear lots of colors, and you wear only black.
But we don’t take things too seriously,
So you and me, we’re the perfect pair.
Yeah, you and me, we’re the perfect pair.

When I first met you,
I didn’t think I liked you.
But now that I know you,
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.

And then in a while,
(And then in a while,)
We’ll look back and smile.

‘Cause when I first met you,
I didn’t think I liked you.
But now that I know you,
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.

When I first met you,
When I first met you,
I didn’t think I liked you.
I didn’t think I liked you.
Now that I know you,
Now that I know you,
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.

When I first met you,
When I first met you,
I didn’t think I liked you.
I didn’t think I liked you.
Now that I know you,
Now that I know you,
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.
You could be my best friend.
