Friends” is a song by Justin Bieber. He played a snippet of the song at Milan Airport in June 17, 2017. Justin played the song again at the Old Fashion Milan club in Italy, June 19th 2017.

The song was released as a single on August 18, 2017 as Justin tweeted: "Can we still be friends" and "friday" on August 14, 2017. He later deleted the friday tweet and said it would release a day earlier.

Background Edit

It was a demo Michael Tucker had written with friends and rising songwriters Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter. Tucker liked the song, but nothing really happened to it. So he did what he usually does when songs don’t really move: he tore it apart and put it back together again. “We played it for Justin [Bieber’s] team, and they loved it,” Tucker explained.[3]

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
BloodPop®

[Verse 1]
I was wonderin' 'bout your mama
Did she get that job she wanted?
Sell that car that gave her problems?
I'm just curious 'bout her, honest (ooh-ooh)

[Pre-Chorus]
Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good
So I'm wonderin'

[Chorus]
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
Can we be friends?

[Verse 2]
Wonderin' if you've got a body
To hold you tighter since I left (since I left)
Wonderin' if you think about me (ooh-ooh)
Actually, don't answer that (uh-huh)

[Pre-Chorus]
Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good
So I'm wonderin'

[Chorus]
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
Can we be friends?
And if it ends, can we be friends?

[Pre-Chorus]
Know you're wonderin' why I been callin'
Like I got ulterior motives
Know we didn't end this so good
But you know we had something so good
I'm wonderin'

[Chorus]
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Can we still be friends? (ah-ah)
Doesn't have to end (ah-ah)
And if it ends, can we be friends?
