Do you ever say ‘Let’s Be Friends’ with your ex but you know you won’t be friends? That’s what singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepson’s new song, ‘Let’s Be Friends,’ is all about. She sings it for the ones who are happy to spend Valentine’s Day alone like she is.
The song is sweet and sassy at the same time. With lyrics like “let’s be friends then never speak again, it’s cool we can just pretend we were friends and never speak again,” she doesn’t beat around the truth, she tells it. The music is bouncy and fun to dance to, so go ahead and dance around your house and sing this on Valentine’s Day.
‘Let’s Be Friends’ is about the little lie we all share to soften the blow of a breakup. This Valentine’s Day I’d prefer to just rip off the band aid. See you never!Carly Rae Jepsen
