what you wanted, i can't give you
what you said was stupid my old friend
you can't have it, but I wanted everything

i can't remember, now
it was September, now
i can't remember, now
travis perkins, i can't
remember my head float away
cause i love you and i needed you to stay

i can't remember, now
i can't remember, now
travis perkins, now

just this once i think i needed
everything to be that way
but i miss you all the same

and i can't remember my head blown away
cause i love you and i needed you to stay

    General CommentI'm not sure, but I see this as 'Travis Perkins' the building firm has to be strong... and so this guy has to be strong because of the line that says "cause i love you and i needed you to stay" because she left him, or his friend did because it seems to be about friendship.

    If it is about friendship it makes more sense because the old friend said something stupid and so they fell out, and that's why he has to be strong.
