got the call, got the call just a couple of days ago
that they took, they went and took one half of your soul
there we were, nearly 1000 miles away when we heard
could hear your tears falling clear as day
we just wished you were okay

there are times, times you'll never forget
in your heart, in your heart you will always live free of regret
because a love, a love like this never dies
it just grows
grows and it strengthens over time
grows stronger with the years of our lives
i was wrong when i said things never work out right
i was wrong to believe that theres no meaning to this life
it's just taken a couple of years
shedding my own tears
to be able to wholeheartedly say to you
we'll never be alone
you'll never be alone
you'll never be alone
you'll never be alone

    General Commentthe only julie i can think of is their friend/original website creator. as far as this song goes it wasn't supposed to be released. somehow the song was leaked. the band actually asks people not to download it as it wasn't meant for us to hear.

    General CommentDoes anyone think this song is connected with the song from Goddamnit "Trouble Breathing". In that song he says stuff like "things they never work out right" and in "Song for Julie" he says "I was wrong when I said things never work out right" what do you think?

    General Commenti'm julie. i did the trio website from 1998-2003. the song was written for me summer 2002 when my father passed away from a heart attack. since it was a "present" to me at the time i didn't want everyone in the world getting their hands on it...for some reason it felt less special that way. the trio was nice enough to request that people stop sharing it and amazingly most people listened. i don't mind if people share it now, as long as you take it as a reminder to not take your parents for granted. and yes mark danger, i'm pretty sure it's a reference to trouble breathing. matt is funny that way.

    erm, and here are the correct lyrics:

    got the call, got the call just a couple of days ago
    that they took, they went and took one half of your soul
    there we were, nearly 1000 miles away when we heard
    could hear your tears falling clear as day
    we just wished you were okay

    there are times, times you'll never forget
    in your heart, in your heart you will always live free of regret
    because a love, a love like this never dies
    it just grows
    grows and it strengthens over time
    grows stronger with the years of our lives
    i was wrong when i said things never work out right
    i was wrong to believe that theres no meaning to this life
    it's just taken a couple of years
    shedding my own tears
    to be able to wholeheartedly say to you
    we'll never be alone
    you'll never be alone
    you'll never be alone
    you'll never be alone

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song, i sang it to my girlfriend on our anniversary, i am very sorry for your loss, and i am sorry that the song leaked, but am also glad that you have said we can listen to it, my girlfriend loves it very much, and i actually thought it was about a loss in a family. i know what it is like to loose someone close to you, things work out fine in the end, they did for me.

    General CommentI love this song and i am actually glad it leaked because I am going through a similar time in my life like Julie had, except my mother is the one who is dying. This song really helps me. Ironically, my name is Julie also.

    General CommentThis song conveys the exact emotions I felt when my friend was sectioned because of anorexia. Like one half of my soul had been ripped away.
