"10 years today" as written by and Matthew/james Tuck....
Ten years ago
I got a call that nearly killed me
Repeat yourself, my hands are shaking

When I was told my friend was gone
I felt so guilty
A thousand questions left unanswered

(I'll bleed if you want me to!)
I'll serenade before I do
(I'll bleed if you want me to!)

On and on, although you're gone
Candles burn without a flame on
Our final call to you, I know you're listening
How could you leave us that way?
Where did you go, ten years today!

Ten years ago
I stood beside the wood that held you
I must sit down, my legs are shaking

We let you go
With gifts of plectrums for your journey
And melodies to help you on your way

(I'll bleed if you want me to!)
I'll serenade before I do
(I'll bleed if you want me to!)

On and on, although you're gone
Candles burn without a flame on
Our final call to you, I know you're listening
How could you leave us that way?
Where did you go, ten years today!

I'll bleed if you want me to
(I'll bleed if you want me to!)
I'll bleed if you want me to!

On and on, although you're gone
Candles burn without a flame on
Our final call to you, I know you're listening (I know you're listening)
How could you leave us that way?
Where did you go (ten years today!)
Where did you go (ten years today!)
Where did you go
How could you leave us that way?
Where did you go, ten years today!

    General Commentthis songs about the singers friend who committed suicide unexpectidly. I think the friend could have been in a band with him as it says "How could you leave us that way?" and "With gifts of plectrums for your journey, and melodies to help you on your way"

    I also think they may have had an arguement which wasnt reseloved before he died as it says "A thousand questions left unanswered" and he also thinks its his fault he kill himself cuz, it says "I felt so guilty

    i only thing i dont get is the line "Candles burn without a flame on", whats that mean??

    General Commenti think that 'candles burn without a flame on' kinda means that things go without a reason?? like this guy died but no one really knows why.

    General Commenti think what he meant by 'candles burn without a flame on' is that even though a candle isnt lit in his memory they still remember him.

    General CommentI won't quote from an interview but this weeks Kerrang! seeks meaning to this song. And it's about suicide at a young age and how you deal with it, 15 is such a fragile age, and in this case it was unexpected, gone so quickly. BFMV :]
