    It’s difficult to evade, and hard to believe
    It is a challenge playing so naive
    It consumes so much energy not giving in

    She induces my arousal like no one else
    I must continue to remind myself
    She is just a friend… “she's just a friend.”

    I have a lady and home of my own,
    We are established and continue to grow.
    And, I’m not trying to see us come to an end.

    But, so often she'll catch with her eyes
    Then, so often I'll feel urges rise
    But, she's just a friend… “she's just a friend.”

    I have envisioned us being close
    Using bits of imagination I compose,
    Along with all the many desires growing within.

    The images make control tough to maintain
    I want to know, is the sentiment the same?
    But, she's just a friend… “she's just a friend.”

    Time together intensifies my fascination
    I feel something special in our relation
    Something exceptional could most definitely begin.

    But, despite my powerful inclination,
    I must carry on resisting temptation
    Indeed, She is just a friend… “she's just a friend.”

    Each day it's more difficult I cannot deny
    Each time I let this woman come by
    And, I don’t seize what I think and feel to extend.

    And so, the old cliché seems to holds true
    I cannot "have cake and eat it to"
    She's just a friend… “she's just a friend.”

    Now, I do not like to “swing and miss”
    But, I do not like to wonder "what if?"
    So, I'm not sure how all of this will end.

    All I know is at the present time
    I have a lady and a home I call mine…
    And she's just a friend… “she's just a friend.”​
