    ENJOY. lemme know what you wanna hear down below! don't forget to subscribe:) love you guys!
    Yea i wonder if
    My name has ever crossed ur mind
    Even for a second
    Know its been a second
    since we last talked
    Or faced each other eye to eye
    Know its been hectic
    Ya I shoulda said this
    It kinda hurts cuz its insane
    Yea we walk by and its like
    I don't even know you
    Like I've never met you
    I see our pictures on my phone
    And question why we didn't try
    But we were just habits
    Thought we'd always have it
    So to my ex best friend
    I thought I'd know til the end
    Sorry I know things aren't going
    as we planned
    To my once ride or die
    The one who always knew me right
    We would swear it'd always end up
    you and I
    we really messed up this time
    We really messed up this time
    What about all the nights
    Where we'd talked about our lives
    We were just wishing
    Wish I would of listened
    It kinda hurts cuz its insane
    Yea we walk by and its like
    I don't even know you
    Like I've never met you
    I see our pictures on my phone
    And question why we didn't try
    But we were just habits
    Thought we'd always have it
    thought I know to the end
    So to my ex best friend
    I thought I know til the end
    Sorry I know things aren't going
    as we planned
    To my once ride or die
    The one who always knew me right
    We would swear it'd always end up
    You and I
    we really messed up this time

    My old best friend and I were inseparable in grade school, until 5th grade when I found out I was gonna have to move schools (we were going to different middle schools too)😭 we cried over each other for a while and tried to FaceTime every night, but soon we started to drift apart. It’s now been about 2 years and I still have her # so I sent her this and I’m hoping she will answer 🤞😔

    I'm lost I dont have anyone closer to me then my ex bff we still talk but not often, she has a new bff I was replaced and she kept me happy I had her back and she had mine but now I feel like I'm free falling and no one is there to catch me anymore. We had so many memories so many photos of us growing up together going into higher grades since kindergarten now we are in 7th grade but it's one without the other... I want her back 💔

    If there is someone who you think is your best friend but all they do is push you around, pick on you, and is never supporting, know they are not your real friends. Look for people who actually care about you.

    I really dont know how to write that.
    It's not that i completely lost her (im a boy) but it hurts knowing that im not as important for her as she is for me, from the beginning... Now it hurts cause i dont know what i can do about it, i just see her as a person i can traust but sometimes it really hurts, especially in moments she put other, unnecessary things over me.
    (No i dont want her as a gf, we both are in a relationship, plz dont complain about that)
    Any Help?

    My best friend that I’ve known since kindergarten was so sweet, then in fifth grade she became “popular” and stopped hanging out with me at recess, started getting involved with drama she didn’t need to, we barely ever talked as we weren’t in the same class. We were in the same class in 6th grade, but drama,drama,drama. And everything was just..crazy, you can barely describe it. She got a boyfriend, I could barely hang out with her ever, and at the end of the school year she was going to a different school so I spent the last few weeks pretty close to her. I could tell that she didn’t want to be around me, and turns out she ended up moving out of state, we promised we would FaceTime everyday after school, but I have a feeling that won’t happen. So I’m prepared to lose a few friends, scrolling through my contacts list on my phone I realized I really only have 1 true friend. Thanks for reading all of this.

    I had a couple bffs it was 2 boys and 1 girl. There were four of us, always hanging out. Until, one day, one of them moved while I went on vacation for two weeks. I started hanging out with some other people sometimes and I messed up the other two great friends I once had. I was so selfish... Then, they both moved on. I still remained friends with them, we just weren’t very close. Then, they became more popular. They were both still kind to me, at that time. Until, one day, the boy started to bully me. His popular friends stood up for me. Thank god for that. After that, I went into a state of depression. I knew him since Pre-K, and it really broke me to see that happen... He stopped bullying me. I guess he cared about being popular so much, he just stopped to stay popular. Now, I never trust anyone because they lie, manipulate me, and backstab me. I hope you guys had better luck than I did with this struggle of bffs. 💔💔💔

    This is so beautiful. The lyrics made me cry. This song reminds me of my old best friend. He died in a car crash..
    You did a really good job on the lyrics and on the beat and your voice (I know it might be auto tune) sounds really good! You did great on this masterpiece.
