Skimming Stones

I got this really close friend who´s been kicking me along
with 22 recordings of these singers singing all wrong
He´s says, 'I can´t wait for you all day I´m aching for the chance to play
And trying my hand at skimming stones'

But I´m frightened that something will go wrong
I´m living his life 4 years on
And I don´t know what to do when he knows I´m too busy to
Leave it all and take a ride

In the morning there´s a message left sitting by the phone
It's the fourteenth call and he won´t leave me alone
He´s says, 'I will not be satisfied if I laid on the ground and died
without trying my hand at skimming stones'

But I´m frightened that something will go wrong
I´m living his life 4 years on
And I don´t know what to do when he knows I´m too busy to
Leave it all and take a ride

Well it’s never been something I’ve wanted on my own
And who knows what impression I have shown
But now I will not be satisfied if I laid on the ground and died
Without trying my hand at skimming stones
Without trying my hand s-s-s-skimming stones
Well I´m gonna try my hand at skimming stones
