"Curb" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
Have I gone all too far?
Have I been here before?
If I have let me know
How it goes
Take her place
And I will
See her face
No reason
Let it slide
And I will
Watch her die...
To run through fields
To find, and I will
Hold, then lead, then lie
And I will...no I won't

Is it now really time?
Can I just give mine, if
I can simply trade
Deal made

Take her place
And I will
See her face
No reason
Let it slide
And I will

Watch her die...
To run through fields
To find, and I will
Hold, then lead, then lie
And I will...no I won't

Run, hide away from me
Desouled, to seek, decide
And I will, no I won't

Run through fields to find
Hold then lead, then lie
And I will
Run, desouled, and
Hold, to heal, to find
And I can't

    General CommentHey, this is from a Chad Kroeger interview a few days ago, hopefully it will give some enlightenment to you all.

    Curb
    The album and title track were named in tribute to Kroeger's friend Kirby, who suffered through the kind of heartbreak, trauma and tragic violence that exemplified the emotions of grunge. Kroeger's then-17-year-old friend was dating a 16-year-old girl who lived in the country, and one night he snuck out of his house and hopped in his truck to surprise her.

    "He came over a hill in the middle of nowhere on a dirt gravel road and had a head-on collision with a car," Kroeger recalled. "He stumbled out of the car bleeding and bashed up pretty bad, and he opened up the [door of the other] car, and it's his girlfriend. She snuck out at the same time, was going to see him and he killed her on the back of a dirt road. I tried to imagine what they could possibly feel like, and that's where that song comes from."

    That's one sad story, and it is incredible how Kroeger molded the lyrics to form the story.

    General CommentIt amazes me how well Chad can get into a persons head...this song is about his friend, who accidentally killed his gf in a car accident...I lost my fiancee in an accident, and the thoughts and emotions that come through in this song are some of the ones that I felt after he died. Chad is an amazing song writer, and DAMN we grow 'em good in Alberta!

    General CommentI had absolutely no idea what that song meant until now. You are all right...Chad is an excellent song writer. He can take the place of someone so easily and turn their tragic past into a helluva good song. I love nickelback, and if you love that kind of songwriting, you should check out matchbox twenty. Rob Thomas (the lead singer) writes all of the songs, and he does a damn good job, also. It's amazing; he writes about his own past in a lot of his songs. I read an interview, that he used to live in a trailer with his mom, and he writes a lot about his past relationships. One song (3am, check it out) is about his mom fighting cancer when he was 14. He also sings with such passion and emotion, more so on his earlier CDs. But anyway, this is about nickelback. I had always liked to listen to that song, and, now that I know the meaning, I'll probably start bawling the next time I hear it. Awesome song! Chad's lyrics seem so simple and easy to translate and then you look deeper into it holds so much meaning! Can't wait till their next CD! (Or matchbox twenty's!) check them out, their not as rock, but just as good! :) I can't pick my favorite, they're both awesome!
