On the Fence
Music and Lyrics by Erika Hansen

I met you on a summer day
You called me up, I let you know
That I was gonna walk away
You’re a lot like me
But even when the time had passed,
The weight of your words – forgot
I was gonna take my place
On the fence
Fallin’ off

So let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends

But things haven’t been the same
Since you said we should be friends
I’ve been kickin’ at the dirty streets
Waiting for my life to make sense
Confusion’s not the final stage
It’s just another word for where you’ve been,
What you lost
I was gonna take my place
On the fence
But I’m fallin’ off

Oh, through the trees
A bittersweet street melody
Comes lilting through the sultry summer air
Oh, the voice that sings to me
It says “Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends”
Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends

Now that summer’s come and gone
I don’t know where the story goes
Underneath the glowing full moon haze
It seems enough for me to know
Confusion’s not the final stage
It’s just another word for where you’ve been,
What you lost
I was gonna take my place
One the fence, but I’ve fallen off
So let’s be good friends,
Let’s be the very best of friends
Let’s be good friends
Let’s be the very best of friends
