Shannon Barnes 'My Friends...' is a hilarious track, which will have you giggling, and yet it's also very true. Favorite track: My Friends Are More Fucked Up than Me.

Everyone knows that he’s an alcoholic And he won’t live past thirty and we’ll just learn to cope Everyone knows that she is on so many Behavioural meds it could anesthetise an elephant And everyone knows that girl is a schizo And everyone knows that guy is a psycho And everyone, everyone knows At least their friends are more fucked up than them It takes a lot but they’ve managed all the same At least their friends are more fucked up than them They sometimes want to be in the club But they know it’s an impossible job At least their friends are more fucked up than them I have a friend who cancels all her shrink appointments At the last minute and reschedules again And there’s the one who self medicates with everything Including but not limited to alcohol and masturbation And then there’s the ones who just generally wallow in it Making excuses for why they never get their shit together And everyone, everyone knows At least their friends are more fucked up than them… Then there is me, I don’t sleep, I just sit up all night Playing video games just to pass the time I’m so scared of rejection, I don’t have a job because I never apply in case they don’t like me I don’t go to a shrink because I’m scared to call one I’m a high maintenance girlfriend, my lover just has to deal with it But everyone, everyone knows At least my friends are more fucked up than me It takes a lot but they've managed all the same At least my friends are more fucked up than me And I sometimes want to be in their club But I know it's an impossible job At least my friends are more fucked up than me

It looked like a clear and present danger And I’m sure that you thought you understood Your heart wasn’t breaking when you told me But your mind it was melting in its mould Walking Running Chasing me home So if I seem like I’m lashing out in anger It is the voices in my head that make me sing And if you thought it was your purpose to protect her It was the voices in your head that made you cling To waking memories And something kept holding you back then And you never stepped out of your shell Afterwards you sank ever deeper Into the world inside your wishing well Walking Running Chasing me home So if I seem like I’m lashing out in anger It is the voices in my head that make me sing And if you thought it was your purpose to protect her It was the voices in your head that made you cling To waking memories You’re feeling closer You’re walking on ice You’re playing with fire And you think it’s quite nice Walking Running Chasing me home So if I seem like I’m lashing out in anger It is the voices in my head that make me sing And if you thought it was your purpose to protect her It was the voices in your head that made you cling To waking memories If I'm lashing out in anger It is the voices in my head that make me sing And if you thought it was your purpose to protect her It was the voices in your head that made you cling To waking memories To waking memories Walking Running Chasing me home

about

I'm so excited to be putting out this single! When I played my first gig with my ukulele, the song that got by far the best response was this one, so I want to share it with all of you. The B-side is the first song I ever wrote with my uke, and it's been a great experience to play with it and arrange it until it was just right.

Thank you for having a look and a listen, and if you decide to buy it, thank you even more!
