"in front of me" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
It's hard to breathe, from underneath
Smothering in all your heat
It's hard to take, It's tough to break
So I don't make the same mistakes

The same mistake, (4x)

Out in the yard is where I play,
Don't come in cause I'm afraid
You saw my face, I faced my friends
Do I tell or just pretend?
I found a friend, a friend who knows
Who says he'll help but then he goes

And then he goes (4x)

In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah
I'm in the way, the way it goes, so go away, yeah, yeah
In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah

Fingernails, filled with dirt
If you don't tell, you don't get hurt
I cry for help, I pray to God
Another tear he tries to rob
To rob me of, my dignity
Cause sanctuary's far from me

Far from me (4x)

In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah
I'm in the way, the way it goes, so go away, yeah, yeah
It's hard to take, a piece of me, so peacefully, yeah, yeah
In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah

So broke inside, don't run away
And find another place to stay
And make our inhibition go away
Because I'm so afraid, yeah, yeah

It's hard to breathe, from underneath
Smothering in all your heat
It's hard to take, It's tough to break
So I don't make the same mistakes

In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah
I'm in the way, the way it goes, so go away, yeah, yeah
It's hard to take, a piece of me, so peacefully, yeah, yeah
In front of me, In front of me, so far from me, yeah, yeah

    General CommentI love Nickelback, but all the song off Hesher and Curb suck. Even Chad doesn't like it. This song is pretty bad.

    General CommentI like this song its the best of the early ones I think its about a young boy afraid to go inside because of domestic abuse or something along that lines "out in the yard is where I play I don't come in cos I'm afraid"

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this one is about rape. Mostly because of the part about losing dignity.

    My InterpretationI'm fairly certain that this song is about a young boy being molested in his home, most likely by somebody that lives with him.
