Lyrics

Waiting,
Waiting,
For the perfect kind of day
Backing,
Backing,
From what I want to do that day
Forging,
Forging,
All my mind's internal plays
Wasting,
Wasting,
Chances of eternal stays now

And then he comes in
It’s bringing me down
She's into him,
Since I’m not around
Planned it all out,
Turned into pretend
She was just my
Fictional friend

Didn’t think of what to say
Now I am here without my way

Shoulda went through with the play
She would have let me anyway

Now she’s with somebody else
and I won’t put it off the shelf

Perfect opportunities
Wasted for uncertainty now

And then he comes in
It’s bringing me down
She is with him,
Since I’m not around
Planned it all out,
Turned into pretend
She was just my
Fictional friend

And I will miss her too much
My one timidity threw me under the bus
Friends tried to take me through the route
But I was busy milking out the lies
That were in my head
They tried to make me lose the doubt
But I was busy wasting all my time

And then he comes in
It’s bringing me down
She is with him,
Since I’m not around
Planned it all out,
Turned into pretend
She was just my
Fictional friend

And then he comes in
It’s bringing me down
She is with him,
Since I’m not around
I could just wait
Til they fall apart
But what should I say
A wedding ain’t far


About Fictional Friend

Fictional Friend is a mockery of a man who's frequently orchestrating plans to win a girl over but never proceeds to actually go through with them. Since he never even talked to her, it makes her more like an imaginary friend than someone he could date. The girl ends up going with someone else, causing him to lose his chance with her. With the man's obsessive nature, he goes through an emotional breakdown and still thinks about how he could get with her. Overall, this song represents an unhealthy mindset.
