"One Less Heart to Break" as written by and Joshua Dicker Joseph Ragosta....
A young girl steps out to her window
Drops her hopes and dreams and just lets go
Says the world's too much to take
They could use one less heart to break
I think today might be my last

And they said I'll be alright,
Just pick my head up and get on with my day.
'Cause they don't know the pain,
And they don't know the way
That this world is driving me insane

Mother, Father, Where did we go wrong?
Could've used some more affection.
For just one night, forever I'm gone
Could've used some more attention

The whole world fades to black
Count your tears tonight, it still won't bring her back.
Its the writing on the wall, that we all fail to read
Its the writing on the wall, that lets us know our children bleed

Mother, Father, Where did we go wrong?
Could've used some more affection.
For just one night, forever I'm gone
Could've used some more attention

I'll awake today today with brand new eyes, and I can't wait.
Let's just get me through this night.
I'll awake today today with brand new eyes, and I can't wait.
Let's just get me through this night.
I'll awake today today with brand new eyes, and I can't wait.
Let's just get me through this night.
I'll awake today today with brand new eyes, and I can't wait.
Let's just get me through this night.
I'll awake today today with brand new eyes, and I can't wait.
Let's just get me through this night.

Says the world's too much to take
They could use one less heart to break
Let's just get me through this night.

Says the world's too much to take
They could use one less heart to break
Let's just get me through this night.

    General CommentI love love love love this band. This is a song they wrote after their friend you committed suicide. It's actually quite a sad song. Did i mention how amazing this band is?

    Song MeaningI went to see Bowling For Soup last year and these guys were there too I fell in love with douchebag and wanted to know more about them I found this song. It made me cry from listening. I then went this year again and I said to my Mam if they will play One Less Heart To Brake I will end up crying. They then explained it was about a friend who committed suicide. That set me off... Cos of Bowling For Soup, Patent Pending and others like Blink-182 helped me over come life. So basicly the songs about a friend of theres committing suicide... This can kinda be seen in the video too.<3
