Just Good Friends

Peter Hammill

Tom: F#
(Intro: ) 

F# / F#m / F# / F#m 


(First Verse:) 

F# 
Drawing back the curtains, 
                                            F#m 
sluggish city daylight in the afternoon... 
F# 
Here's that special silence, 
                                                F#m 
just before you walk out of the hotel room. 
              A                   C# 
Each time we're so close I assume 
               F#m        C# 
that we'll never be again - 
            A         E  F#5 (no chord) 
oh, how long must we pretend 


(Second Verse - same chords) 

A casual affair is all that you can spare 
from your emotional change; 
A calendar of meetings, 
strangers on the street 
the best we ever arrange. 
Now I just can't stand all the pain, 
all the constant make and mend; 
oh how long must we pretend 
that we're just good friends? 

F#m                C# 
   I gave you my devotion, 
F#m                     B 
   hiding nothing up my sleeve - 
E                    Abm 
   If I walked clean out of your life 
              C#m            F#m 
would you even notice me leave? 
                               C# 
So much tangled-up emotion, 
F#m                          B 
   should I stay or should I go? 
E                 Abm 
If I walked clean out of your life 
      C#m                       F#m 
how long would it take you to know? 
(no chord) 
Are we such good friends? 


(On original release include the 4 lyric lines, on The Love Songs 
play them Instrumentally - Same chords) 


You used to say 'I love you', 
you used to say 'You make me feel alive and young'; 
now we're just a habit, a flavour, one a month, 
to titillate your tongue. 
How sordid this has become 
as the means approach the end - 
Oh, how long can we pretend 


F#m                C# 
   I gave you my devotion, 
F#m                     B 
   hiding nothing up my sleeve - 
E (add choir...      Abm 
   If I walked clean out of your life 
              C#m            F#m 
would you even notice me leave 
F#m                   C# 
So much tangled-up emotion, 
F#m                          D 
   should I stay or should I go? 
G                 Bm 
If I walked clean out of your life 
      Em                        D(?) Am   E   Am   D 
how long would it take you to know? 
G                 Bm 
If I walked clean out of you life 
      Em                        Am 
how long would it take you to know 
(no chord) 
Are we such good friends?
