lay awake wondering
if things could have been much different
second chance whats become
of a friendship if you can call this one
stayed in touch stood behind
while i gave you space
and you in made mine while
everyone makes mistakes

you let me down for the last time
took the pills
and theres nothing you can hide
and i wash my hands of you
getting on with my life

wanna call and catch up
but no matter what i know you still suck
took the drugs from my friends
what ever were you thinkin?
stayed in touch stood behind
while i gave you space
and you in made mine while
everyone makes mistakes....

and the shit remains the same
and theres' no difference
in this stupid world we know

    General Commentthe lyrics arent correct though..

    lay awake wondering
    if things could have been much different
    second chance whats become
    of a friendship if you can call this one
    stayed in touch stood behind
    while i gave you space
    and you INVADE mine while
    everyone makes mistakes

    you let me down for the last time
    TRUTH PREVAILS
    and theres nothing you can hide
    and i wash my hands of you
    getting on with my life

    wanna call and catch up
    but no matter what i know you still suck
    took the drugs from my friends
    what ever were you thinkin?
    stayed in touch stood behind
    while i gave you space
    and you INVADE mine while
    everyone makes mistakes....

    and the shit remains the same
    and theres' no difference
    in this stupid world we know

    General Commentgreat song, i first heard it of the vagrant sampler, soooo great. HRC is one of the best bands around, Everytime i go to see a show, the guys are always walking around after their set and are willing to talk a bit and give some high fives.

    General CommentThey are seriously nice guys....always are suprised when people say they are great. I think this song is about someone he was in love with that wasn't ready to get serious... this person lead him to belive that they would come to him soon and begin a life with him....but they seem to be just keeping him around for comfort.. like a liitle pillow that is almost all worn out. and he is now pissed.... i think the reference to drugs is just that... maybe he told this person to stop taking drugs, and they didn't listen. It might be the reason he is sick of this persons crap..... maybe.

    General CommentThis song is great...It got me hooked on HRC and i agree with TBS...its not appreciated enough. One line that always sticks in my head..."and i wash my hands of you
    getting on with my life" that's exactly how i feel.

    General Commenti heard this for the first time on the Vagrant sampler... and i fell in love. i think this song is about someone who's been strung along by a significant other for a long time, waiting for him/her to make a decision. and you finally get fed up.
    "wash my hands of you, getting on with my life."

    Rock on, HRC....
