"Ballad For Dead Friends" as written by Chris Dye, Greg Joseph Evanski, Leo Anthony Bocci and Daniel J. Meyer....
How are you feeling
Do you feel ok?
Cause I don't
It keeps me reelin'
Will I ever be the same?
No I won't
Its a cold day in a cruel world
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would save me from myself?
Right now, well, I could use a stiff drink
To kill the pain that's deep inside my bones
Have you been dreaming?
I don't dream at all
I have nightmares
Memories careenin'
Have you come to kill what's left
Of my smile
There's no vacancy in paradise
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would have saved me from myself
Right now, well, I could use a stiff drink
To kill the pain that's deep inside my bones
I really wished I could have saved you
Then who would have saved me from myself
I'll never forget you [Repeat x4]
I really wished I could have saved you [Repeat x4]

    General CommentFrom the title i guessed the friend/lover had recently died and the singer was particulary close at time of death. And is just remember times together and how hard it was to live on alone. But alos looking in the our curiosity about the after life. Just a personal guess, Bloody good song tho

    General CommentTo me, it's about almost losing someone to addiction and not being able to do anything about it... They get better (for me it's eating disorders) because they got caught out but you don't because you left them....
