{For everyone who's ever been told they "friendzoned" somebody. Nggggh.}


I, I thought we had a deal
Were gonna keep our friendship real
'Cuz at the start we swore
We needed nothing more

I kicked your ass at PVP
Your horror movies lost me sleep
Talking trash, so juvenile
You'd do anything to make me smile

You, you were the best friend
I could've ever asked for
But in the end your goal
Has always been to score

I, I, I just dodged a bullet
My heart, heart, heart just wasn't in it
You closed your eyes and tried to kiss me
Crushed my trust, and now you're history
I, I, I'm so disappointed
My heart, heart, heart is so disjointed
You won't make me yours, yeah, I'll be damned
I'll be the best you never had

Now, I can see the truth
Your real colours have leaked through
An ugly shade of greed
Where your heart should be

I miss the guy I thought I knew
You're a fake, a flake, and a user too
So shallow, you can't understand
So grow up, boy, if you think you can

You, you were the best friend
I could've ever asked for
But in the end your goal
Has always been to score


I never saw this coming
Didn't know what you were doing
Now I'm out of sight and out of mind
I should've seen this coming
Should've known what you were doing
I laughed so hard I cried

Kieran Strange Vancouver, British Columbia

He’s been compared to David Bowie, Tony Stark, Ramona Flowers, Hawkeye, and Tank Girl! – but IRL, he’s Kieran Strange, a powerful young artist blending pop sensibilities, dynamic guitars, and high-energy live rock shows into his own brand of geeky British pop-punk.

At the tender age of seventeen, he left his small English fishing village to write songs about rebellion, relationships, and RPGs.
