Check out the lyrics for “Real Friends” below.

No, I think I’ll stay in tonight
Skip the conversations and the “Oh, I’m fines”
No, I’m no stranger to surprise
This paper town has let me down too many times
Why do I even try? Give me a reason why
I thought that I could trust you, never mind
Why all the switching sides? Where do I draw the line?
I guess I’m too naive to read the signs

I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
All they ever do is let me down
Every time I let somebody in
Then I find out what they’re all about
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
Wonder where they’re all hidin’ out (hidin’ out)
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
Gotta get up out of this town

Oh, oh
Yeah 

Trust slow for a reason (reason)
See through the fake pretty easy (yeah)
Stayin’ down ’till the world ends
Guilt trips on the weekend (hey)
I pack more than suits in my suitcases
All this cash, that’s friendly faces
Been movin’ fast, I’m racin’ (wait)
Get up, you’re going places (c’mon)
Every day, tryna maintain
Same old me, ain’t a damn thing change
Real friends screaming, “Gang, gang, gang”

I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
All they ever do is let me down (oh-no-no)
Every time I let somebody in (woah)
Then I find out what they’re all about (all about)
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
Wonder where they’re all hidin’ out (hidin’ out)
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
Gotta get up out of this town

Real friends
Lookin’ for some real friends
Yeah

I just wanna talk about nothin’
With somebody that means something (conversation)
Spell the names of all our dreams and demons
For the times that I don’t understand
Tell me what’s the point of a moon like this
When I’m alone again (yeah yeah yeah)
Can I run away to somewhere beautiful
Where nobody knows my name?

I’m just lookin’ for some real friends
All they ever do is let me down
And I let somebody in
But I find out what they’re all about
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
All they ever do is let me down
I’m just lookin’ for some real friends (real friends)
Gotta get up out of this town, yeah

Spend a fortune with my real friends
Good guess, what we breathe in (oh, ohhh)
Pop corns with some real friends
Killin’ the scene, yeah (ohhh, ah)
Hangin’ with my real friends
That I surround myself with (ohhh, ah)
You have to have my back (ah)
Lookin’ like my real friendsWriter/s: Brian D. Lee, Camila Cabello, Khalif Malik Ibin Shaman Brown, Louis Russell Bell, William Walsh, Adam King Feeney, Mustafa Ahmed

A little about Ava /

SHORT BIO:

Over the past year, 15-year-old singer/songwriter and Broadway alumna Ava Della Pietra has emerged as one of the most promising young artists on the pop scene today. Having established herself on the Broadway stage in the original cast of School of Rock, Ava’s debut single “Christmas Tonight” was named one of the “Best Holiday Songs” of the year by Tiger Beat Magazine, alongside artists like the Jonas Brothers and Liam Payne, and her follow-up single “Optimist” reached #50 on the Top 40 Radio chart, earning praise from American SongwriterJust Jared Jr., and Newsday, who called Ava a “Rising Star.” 

Now, as she gears up for her debut album, Ava has released her most poignant single to-date with “Home,” inspired by the devastating stories of families torn apart on the southern border. Parade Magazine called the song “inspiring,” “empowering,” and a “pop ray of hope,” with “pure pop sensibility, catchy hooks and heartfelt lyrics…inspiring young listeners to feel proactive and empowered.” With lyrics that touch on fear, loneliness, and hope, “Home” is universal anthem for any young person struggling with life’s challenges, as relevant to those on the southern border as to the everyday teen. Parade adds, “Her spot-on vocals and sweet delivery will have you singing along and cheering for the power of open-minded activism.” Proceeds from the single and merchandise will be donated to charities dedicated to reuniting and rehoming children at the southern border.

A multi-instrumentalist who plays piano, bass, guitar, violin, and ukulele, Ava began performing at age four and writing songs at age five. She performed on the national tours of Les Misérables and White Christmas before joining the original cast of Broadway’s School of Rock, and has been featured on Good Morning America, Sesame Street, the Tony Awards, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and more. Ava has performed at the Sundance Film Festival, the Great South Bay Music Festival, the New York Tennis Open, and at Madison Square Garden in front of 20,000 Knicks fans, as well as at My Father’s Place in Roslyn, New York, and in front of a sold-out crowd at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall. Most recently Ava launched “Talking Tunes with Ava Della Pietra,” a new music column with Teen Kid News, where she is reviewing popular hits. Ava was also featured on the soundtrack for Secondhand Lions: A New Musical.
