Good Friends

by Joni Mitchell   Printer-friendly version of this lyric

I have to come and see you
maybe once or twice a year
I think nothing would suit me better
than some downtown atmosphere
In the dance halls and the galleries
Or betting in the OTB
Synchronized like magic
Good friends you and me

The sun goes down in Jersey
Rises over Little Italy
We could talk it up
'Til the block gets up
Swapping stories
Sitting around in some all night zoo
Watching it run like a movie
Synchronized like magic
Good friends you and me

No hearts of gold
No nerves of steel
No blame for what we can
and cannot feel

But now it's cloak and dagger
Walk on eggshells and analyze
Every particle of difference
Gets like mountains in our eyes
You say "You're unscrupulous!"
You say "You're naive!"
Synchronized like magic
Good friends you and me

No hearts of gold
No nerves of steel
No blame for what we can
and cannot feel

Sometimes change comes at you
like a broadside accident
There is chaos to the order
Random things you can't prevent
There could be trouble around the corner
There could be beauty down the street
Synchronized like magic
Good friends you and me

No hearts of gold
No nerves of steel
No blame for what we can
and cannot feel
No nerves of steel
No hearts of gold
No blame for what we can and
can't control

Good friends you and me
Good friends you and me
