I've known that boy since both of us were three
And my mama says he always did like me
But we weren't friends til middle school
When all the sudden he seemed really cool
He was my first boyfriend and my first kiss

And ain't it a shame when a good old friendship dies
Hugs and trust giving way to half smiles and lies
It's a damned damned shame when a good old friendship dies

He broke my heart; it never healed the same
There's a corner now, that's carved deep with his name
Cause in high school we were the best of friends
He'd call me up and talk for hours on end
I trusted him with everything I had

And ain't it a shame when a good old friendship dies
Hugs and trust giving way to half smiles and lies
It's a damned damned shame when a good old friendship dies

I left for school and quickly he moved on
The closeness that I cherised now is gone
When we see each other occasionally
And we chat and do the small talk thing
I can pretend for just a minute it's the same
... but when the minute's up we go our separate ways

And ain't it a shame when a good old friendship dies
Hugs and trust giving way to half smiles and lies
It's a damned damned shame when a good old friendship dies
It's a damned damned shame when a good old friendship dies
