About Lake Malawi

Albert Černý (lead vocal, guitar), Jeroným Šubrt (bass and keys) and Antonín Hrabal (drums) make up the Czech band Lake Malawi. With their name inspired by a Bon Iver song, the 2013-formed indie-pop band had dreamed of a career beyond the borders since the very beginning and that’s why they have released songs only in English. Following the release of their first singles, Lake Malawi were approached by the managers of The Kooks and Mika bands. Their first album Surrounded by light was unveiled in 2017.

Lake Malawi have performed in numerous concerts in Europe, while their music has been featured in Czech films and advertisements. The band’s leading vocalist Albert Černý has been honored with various awards for his work.

Lyrics of Friend of a friend

Can you hear it?
There’s someone behind the wall making the same sounds
Can you hear it?
It sounds like you and me when we’re making love
Who is it?
You said you wish they weren’t taking such a long time

She was my neighbour when we were thirteen
She moved back in
There’s not much between us now
Do you know what I mean?

She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ’cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
(I’m only a friend)

Can you feel it?
There’s someone sliding up and down the ceiling
Breathing, he is synchronizing with her beating heart
(With her beating heart)

She was my neighbour when we were thirteen
She moved back in
There’s not much between us now
Do you know what I mean?

She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ’cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
(I’m only a friend)
(I’m only a friend)

She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
She’s never home ’cause she plays in a band
I don’t know if you’d understand
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
I had a dream that she walked through the door
I can’t recall her name anymore
Please believe me, I’m your man
She’s only a friend of a friend of a friend
