about

Told with vulnerability and a deft touch, “My Best Friend” captures a wistful fondness for a past lover. Synth elements create a dream-like atmosphere around resigned melodies and a bittersweet acoustic riff, inviting us to step back in time as Haley honestly makes sense of the relationship and accepts the misaligned desires that still feel unresolved. Ultimately, the song celebrates the heart’s capacity to grow to welcome new loves while holding space–in one way or another–for those in our past.

lyrics

My best friend
Wears his heart on his sleeve,
Though he wishes this was not the case.

My best friend,
Yeah, he smiles with this innocence.
It's one that I lost long ago, faded away.

Like when I lost him
For the first time.

My best friend,
He turned into a lover.
It was the only way that he could stay.

One wants different things from a lover.
And I couldn’t find them there,
Much to my dismay.

So I lost him, oh,
This time simply in a different way.

My best friend,
I have loved for a long time,
Though, in his opinion,
Not in the right way.

My best friend
Will get over me one day.
But as for me, I’ve made a place for him to stay.

So did I lose you, old friend?
It seems as we grow older
That is just the way.

Could I keep you, old friend?
I know I’d like to
But it’s not my place to say.

My best friend,
I can tell when I see him,
That I still read him in a special way.
