"A Farewell to a Friendship" as written by and Michael Baskette Victor Jasper....
In a dream
In a place
Where the far reaches of this mind
I have seen a true nightmare
With the kiss of lovers lips
What a friendly offer
Just a memory
It still hurts
When I think that once
She was mine

Because I'm lost for words
With one last breath
For me to take from you
Now gasp for air
There's nothing left
For me to take from you

I guess its only right
To give someone what they need
Even if its nothing they ever
Wanted in the first place
I've seen with my own two eyes
The hurt and pain
That love causes
That's why I won't let you
Go down that road
Too emotional overdose

If I had her again
Everything would be alright
But nothings alright
And nothings ok
When you live in a memory

[Chorus:]
I'm lost for words
With one last breath
For me to take from you
Now gasp for air
There's nothing left
For me to take from you

Just a breakdown of the heart
I'm lost for words that won't mean a thing
A tragic ending
A farewell to
A friendship that meant
Nothing at all
You let her in
You let her win
Is there anything else
To break or mend a bond as strong as ours
That wallow all through love
All through life

[Chorus]
I'm lost for words
With one last breath
For me to take from you
Now gasp for air
There's nothing left
For me to take from you

    Song MeaningIt is my understanding that the lyrics : what a friendly offer
    just a memory) are wrong. the original text was (One a friend the other
    just a memory)
    which changes the meaning to say that he stopped dating a girl and then his best friend or friend started dating her
    ouch

    General CommentThis is an awesome song! I think it is about a previous relationship this guy had. He was most likely best friends with one girl and the started dating. Things went horribly wrong with their relationship. After it ends, she wants him back but he doesnt want to get hurt again. Thats what i gathered from this song.

    General CommentI can't believe there is only one comment on this song!!! ....To me it is about a guy who was friends with a girl & then they got together, then they broke up, & he feels like he has lost everything...Whenever i hear this song tho, I think of my old bestfriend, who has NOTHING to do with dating..
    "just a breakdown of the heart, im lost for words that wont mean a thing..a tragic ending...a farewell to a friendship that meant nothing at all..you let her in
    you let her win..is there anything else to break or mend?"

    so powerful.

    General Commenta change of pace is such an amazing band and they deserve to be so much more popular and listened to than they are at the moment...i can see them going veeeery far and growing an extreme fanbase..

    i listened to this song this afternoon right after talking to a guy i decided i didnt want to be friends with anymore because we had a pointless relationship...then all of a sudden i hear "a tragic ending, a farewell to a friendship that meant nothing at all" and then i realized that our friendship hadnt meant anything and it felt really good to kind of have that justified

    General CommentI absolutely love this song! The exact same thing happened to me. My best friend and I became serious but then something happened and we broke off, she wants to get back together but i'm scared and I don't want to be hurt again. This song is one of the most amazing songs i've ever heard, I'm sad that not a lot of people have heard or listen to A Change of Pace

    General CommentI understand this song can relate strongly to dating a good or even a best friend and it turning out for the worse, however I relate to this song in a different way with some of the lyrics.

    "I've seen with my own to eyes the hurt and pain
    That love causes that's why I won't let you go
    Down that road to emotional overdose"
    I relate to this, as a good friend split with her ex after a long term relationship. He treated her so poorly and all of her friends said she deserved better, yet she remained to stay with him because she loved him. Then she wants to get back together. We try and explain she could try and move on, because we've seen what he does to her, and its because she loves him that she cant move on.

    "You let her in, You let her win
    Is there anything else
    To break or bend a bond as strong as ours
    Now hollow all throughout"
    After she let her ex get back in her life, he started saying how she cant be friends with us. It put so much tension in the friendship, and in the end, what was such a strong bond with us broke.

    Thats just how I relate to the song though. =)

    General Commenti think the meaning of this song is quite obvious....it's about dating your best friend, falling in love with him/her, and then breaking up and losing the great friendship you had.

    this song really hits home for me...i had a great friendship with this girl who i met my freshman year of college. i eventually fell in love with her, and she had fallen for me as well (or so she said)..we started dating and things were so great. i was more happy than i had ever been before..until i found out that she had been playing me and seeing at least one other guy behind my back...i was crushed, and in the end our friendship was ruined..
