Background[]

"My Friend" is about a close friend of Hayley's and how this person has helped her through her ups and downs.

Hayley told Pitchfork:

"This song is mostly about my friend Brian. He and I run a haircare company together and we’ve known each other since I was 17 and he was 19. Our friendship has gone through so many stages, and we’ve been through some really heavy shit together. We both went through divorces in the same year. We’re like Thelma and Louise: I feel like I would drive off a cliff with him if it came to it."

Lyrics[]

Mm, ah

Little wrinkle by your eye
I never noticed 'till right now
Little vicious tiger stripes
If you get close-up to my thighs
When you're walkin' with a limp
I can remember the wolves at your heels
When my shadow barges in
You never question why she is here

My friend, when the blood has dried
My friend, instant alibi
You've seen me from every side
Still down for the ride
Ooh, my friend, you know why

Not a secret I can't keep
All of your good and your evil
Well, babe, you can leave it with me
Safe, together
If it's wrong or if it's right
I am beside you, famine or fi-ire (I-ire, I-ire, I-ire, I-ire)

My friend, when the blood has dried
My friend, instant alibi
You've seen me from every side
Still down for the ride
Ooh, my friend

Who could take your place?
Who could take mine?
None could take your place
None could take mine

My friend, when the blood has dried
My friend (We stay safe together, we stay safe together)
Instant alibi (We stay safe together, escape death forever)
You've seen me from all sides
Still down for the ride
Ooh, my friend, you know why

We stay safe together
We stay safe together
We stay safe together
Escape death forever
Escape death forever
Escape death forever
We stay safe together
We stay safe together
We stay safe together
Escape death forever
Escape death forever
We stay safe together
Escape death forever
