No, no, hesitation
No, no, things that I've
Done wrong you want to know
But do you want to know?

There's one, one, wrong desire
One more more bullet in my head
I'm breaking, I'm breaking

It takes one small
Compliment
That could save this boy
And the life we spent
But we're writing in his
Eulogy
We didn't know
How can we know?

No, no, conversation
No, no, cigarette to start it up again
To start it up again
There's no more
Room for heroes
No, no, we're already dead
I'm breaking, I'm breaking

It takes one small
Compliment
That could save this boy
And the life we spent
But we're writing in his
Eulogy
We didn't know
How can we know?

Well, I believe that I will be remembered
And I believe that I will be forgotten by a few
But even if this life is never-ending
We'd get the forks and get the cake
And come on boys let's celebrate

It takes one small
Compliment
That could save this boy
And the life we spent
But we're writing in
His eulogy
We didn't know

How can we know?

    General Commentawesome song... really deep. its saying how treating sometime differently could effect their lives and how a certain incident in the song could have saved a life.

    General CommentGreat song. Just thinking about what the song is about is saddening. Very deep and hopefully eye opening to some.

    General CommentAs Tall As Lions — Break Blossom
    No, no hesitation
    No, no -the things that I've
    Done wrong you want to know
    But do you want to know?

    One more wrong desire
    One more bullet in my head
    I'm breaking, I’m breaking

    It takes one small compliment
    That could save this boy
    From the life he spent
    But we're writing in his eulogy,
    “We didn't know
    How could we know?”

    No, no conversation
    No, no cigarette to start it up again
    (To start it up again)
    There’s no, no room for heroes
    No, no they're already dead
    I’m breaking, I’m breaking

    It takes one small compliment
    That could save this boy
    From the life he spent
    But we're writing in his eulogy,
    “We didn't know
    How could we know?”


    Well I believe that I will be remembered,
    And i believe that I will be forgotten by a few.
    But even if this life is never-ending
    We'd get the forks and get the cake
    And come on boys let's celebrate

    WOAH…
