D                  G

Your friend told you 'cause I told her
D                       G
Friday nights have been lonely

Change your plans and then phone me

Verse 2:

D                   G
We could go and get 40s

Fuck goin' to that party
   D                        G
Oh really, your folks are away now?

Chorus:

Gm            D
12:51 is the time my voice
          Gm
Found the words I sought
           D
Is it this stage I want?
    Gm                 D
The world is shutting out, for us
        Gm
We were tense for sure
       D
But we was confident

Verse 3:

D                    G
Kiss me now that I'm older
Em                A
I won't try to control you
D                       G
Friday nights have been lonely
Em                    A
Take it slow but don't warn me

Verse 4:

D                   G
We'd go out and get 40's
Em                  A
Then we'd go to some party
D                         G
Oh really, your folks are away now?
 Em                 A
Alright I'm coming...

I'll be right there  (fading)
