Ah, kids these days.

One of my favorite things to do is volunteer with my church's youth group. I have been with them for about seven years, and even though I am often mistaken for one of the kids (the majority are taller than me), I do feel like I have a positive, big-sisterly influence on them. I love feeling like we are instilling in them that they can make a difference and do good in the world!

However, one thing they DO need help in is to be steered towards better taste in music.

We had a party the other day, complete with a DJ. (We don't limit ourselves to Christian rock...even though some of those tunes are kinda catchy..."come with me, and I will show you Jesus...if you're lookin' for a savior...if you're lookin' for adventure...if you're lookin' for a friend...")

One young 6th grade girl requested the song "Unfriend You." "Unfriend You" is apparently an amazing song.

My fellow leader and I looked at her and said, "Unfriend you? As in Facebook-unfriend?"

The DJ did NOT have "Unfriend You", but that didn't stop me from looking-up the lyrics when I got home.

I believe it makes the New Kids on the Block "Please Don't Go Girl" look like Hamlet.

"Unfriend You"

I really thought you were the one
It was over before it begun
It's so hard for me to walk away
But I know I can't stay

You're beautiful and crazy too
Maybe that's why I fell into you
Even though you would pretend to be
You were never with me

So it's over yeah we're through, so I'll unfriend you
You're the best liar ever knew, so Imma unfriend you
cause I should have known, right from the start
I'm deleting you right from my heart
Yeah it's over, my last move is to unfriend you

I thought in time that you could change
And my time and love would heal the pain
And I didn't want this day to come
But now all I feel is numb

So it's over yeah we're through, so Imma unfriend you
You're the best liar ever knew, so Imma unfriend you
cause I should have known, right from the start
I'm deleting you right from my heart
Yeah it's over, my last move is to unfriend you

You come on to everybody
Everybody all the time
You give up to anybody
What I thought was only mine

So it's over now we're through, so I'll unfriend you
You're the best liar I ever knew, so I will unfriend you
'Cause I should have known, right from the start
That you didn't have a human heart
Yeah it's over my last move is to unfriend you
Unfriend you

So I'll unfriend you
Unfriend you
