"One Less Heart to Break" as written by and Joshua Dicker Joseph Ragosta....
Small town, just north of the city,
There's a girl all alone by the window in need and she,
Shes thinking that this world's too much to take
And they could use one less heart to break.
She stares down at the world from below
fools herself to thinking she should just let go, i know.
I wish she knew she wasn't so alone.

She left us a letter to outline the facts
how she felt so alone like the world turned their back
her parents dont notice her slipping away
she'd still be around if she just heard them say

its the ups and down of living life this way
promise me you'll never go away
just stay with me through one more night
because its always darkness before the light
and now ill promise you ill never go away
i wont let you give us one more heart to break

flashback to early that year
between his home life and school he wish he'd just disappear, i know
he's thinking that this worlds too much to take
and they could use one less heart to break
whole world falling down on his back
he took a bottle of pills and hes finished with that, i know
i wish he wasn't so alone

He left us a letter to outline the facts
How he felt so alone like the world turned their backs
His parents don't notice he's slipping away
He'd still be around if he just heard them say

It's the ups and downs of living life this way
Promise me you'll never go away
Just stay with me through one more night
Because it's always darkest before the light
And now I promise you I'll never turn away
I won't let you give us one less heart to break

    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
