BackgroundEdit

On “Fake Friends,” Emma Blackery doesn’t want to play the part.

The brooding 80’s influenced electropop track appears on her debut album Villains which was released on August 31, 2018.

Blackery teased the song via Instagram two days before it’s release saying:

"i wrote this when everyone told me he was “nice, really.” when i was gaslighted into believing i must be crazy to think he could be a bad person. a lot’s changed since then. when i cut ties with someone, trust me. if you see me running away, run with me. or don’t; i love being proven right."
On the back of the vinyl-album artwork, the tracklist has little messages explaining what each song is directed towards. This song is: ‘For The Narcissist.’

LyricsEdit

I got your number
In many ways
You like the drama
So what you saying now?
This game we're playing now
Where we pretend
That we're good?

You're not forgiven
For what you did
But out in public
We're in the same clique
Think I can work with this
I got you understood

Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends

I know the story
That no one's seen
But I'm not innocent
So let's not come clean
Let's play respectfully
We ain't got nothing to say

And I still stand by
The things I said
You may trick others
But you're not in my head
This rivalry ain't dead
Unless we're up on a stage

Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends

You don't trust me and you've got no reason to
I've got a panic button
I don't wanna press on you
You don't trust me and I don't trust you
You've got a panic button
Lets just co-exist
No one has to know that we're
On each other’s lists

Know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
(You don't trust me and you've got no reason to)
Just know your role and we'll be fake friends
(You don't trust me and I don't trust you)
