beware of false friends

You can find people that say they are your friend
But this is often not true and sends me round the bend
These are people that will often will talk just have fun
But will walk away once your use to them is done
They will say they care and think you are great
Then they hit you when you're down these real mate
I thought id found some that I could really trust
But I got to learn to be more careful I really must
For when I started to open up and reveal my heart
They turned simply tore and ripped me apart.
