If you’ve been on TikTok at all lately, you’ll likely have heard the “Two friends sitting in a tree… they might kiss” sound, which involves an adorably awkward dialogue between friends, talking about whether or not they’re going to kiss.
The sound has gotten tons of attention over the past month, with over 10,000 videos using it and growing, including viral hits and some standouts from the Harry Potter TikTok world.
If you’re wondering where this audio comes from – we’ve done the (admittedly ridiculous amount of) digging for you and have answers. Here we go!

The “Two Friends Sitting in a Tree” Song from TikTok
First of all, the background music that goes with this sound likely sounds familiar because it’s the oh so popular “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
But, twist: it’s actually a cover version by Tom Rosenthal, which you can listen to in full here. It’s magical.
Where is the speaking part from?
A lot of TikTok users have speculated that the adorable dialogue between friends comes from a movie or TV show, but actually the truth is quite different (and a bit sadder).
To refresh your memory, the dialogue goes like this:
Guy: Two friends sitting in a tree…
Guy: They might kiss.
Guy: They might.
Girl: No they won’t…
Guy: Why’d you have to say that?
Girl: You’re making this really awkward right now.
Guy: I told my mom about you…
Girl: Your mom?
~ Song goes “God I never loved one like you” ~
Well, after some digging, we found the answer to the mystery! The audio itself actually comes from a (now deleted) TikTok video from @hhsevras (formerly known as @desicomrade) originally posted on October 15.
In the comments, she confirmed that the video has been deleted, so sorry – we don’t have that for you!
She also confirmed in the video that the dialogue was scripted.

Looking to see some examples of this TikTok sound in action?
Here is the original from @tompablo, which features an aesthetic people watching mashup in Brighton, England.
Another popular one is this one from @franciscolikes2disco, in which he captioned the dialogue “Random girl and she knew the lyrics?!”
Unfortunately, TikTok detectives quickly discovered that they did in fact know each other from before as she appears in some of his earlier videos.
Our personal favourite is this “straight from a movie” scene posted by @har5heen showing a sweet interaction between a busker and a girl on the street. It matches the audio perfectly.
Lastly, we’ve gotten a few Harry Potter TikTok gems from this, including:
- This cute Oliver Wood POV
- This (other) cute Oliver Wood POV
- This fun Fred POV involving lines for Y/N

Although the sound dates back to early 2021, it seems like it got a lot more traction near the end of April.

In this case, the song in the background is of course “Promiscuous” by Nelly Furtado ft. Timbaland.
We haven’t been able to find the original source of the voices speaking, but here’s how the dialogue goes:
Two best friends in a room, they might kiss.
Yes we will.
Yes we will…

The sound has gone especially viral thanks to this weirdly perfect TikTok involving Harry Styles, which fits the audio amazingly well.
