Lyrics:
when you tell your little stories
of my faults won’t gain you glory
when you act unkindly and malign me
though at first i was discouraged
eventually it gave the courage
to realize i opened up my eyes
i didn’t see but now i do
with enemies who needs a friend like you
who needs a friend like you
rumours of my death inflated, dramatized, and overstated
spread certain parts of the town
knives were twisted and lessons learned
my back was stabbed and some bridges burned
way to kick a fella when he’s down
i didn’t see but now i do
with enemies who needs a friend like you
who needs a friend like you
