or
Linda Ronstadt

I thought I found the man of my dreams
Now it seems
This is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down
And say "Can't we be friends?"

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long
I can see the way this ends
He's going to turn me down
And say "Can't we be friends?"

Never again
Through with love
Through with men
They play their game without shame
And who's to blame?

I thought I found a man I could trust
What a bust
This is how the story ends
He's going to turn me down
And say "Can't we be friends?"

Why should I care
Though he gave me the air?
And why should I cry?
Even sigh
Or wonder why?

I thought for once it couldn't go wrong
Not for long
I can see the way this ends
He's going to turn me down
And say "Can't we be
Can't we be
Can't we be
Can't we be
Can't we be
Can't we be friends?"
