"Everlasting Friend" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
A heartbeat skip, relationship
Inside a bubble bath
An icing drip below your lip
So we undo the math
A sudden slip between
My pathetic sedatives
A real-life script of how
Mistakes became our medicine, so

Delay the hurtful words
Of complicated overcast
Please take the message that I'm
Picking up my chin at last
I said my confidence
It gets stronger when you're next to me
But we pray from miles away
In quest for what we long to be

I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
But you're my everlasting friend
Everlasting friend

A heartbeat skip, relationship
So we would stay up late
A teardrop drip below your lip
Beside the airport gate
A sudden slip from where
We used to be a year ago
A real-life script of how
Our hands would hold and not let go

But delay the mournful words
Of complicated overcast
Please take the message
That you taught me how to live at last
But I said my confidence
It gets stronger when you're next to me
But we wave respect goodbye
In quest for what we long to be, but

I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
But you're my everlasting friend

Will you be coming home?
(Everlasting friend)
My everlasting friend, will you be coming home?
(Everlasting friend)

I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
(Still missing you)
I might crumble, I might take a fall again


I might crumble, I might take a fall again
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
I might crumble, I might take a fall again
I just want to know that you'll be coming home
I just want to know that you'll be coming home
I just want to know that you'll be coming home
I just want to know that you'll be coming home

    General CommentI love this song so much and i can relate to it. It seems like a long distance reltationship. My girlfriend lives in Arkansas and when ever i go to see her i usually fly. But when i have to return home she starts to cry know that it will be awhile before we will be togther again "A teardrop drip below your lip, Beside the airport gate" and how we dont want to let go of each other "A real-life script of how Our hands would hold and not let go". when i am with her she does make me feel stronger and when we go to parties togther, i feel so alive "That you taught me how to live at last But I said my confidence It gets stronger when you're next to me". One day we hope to be able to see each other day so we have to hold strong to our love for each other and hope that we can get through the pains of a long distance relationship "in quest for what we long to be". That what i think the song means i could be wrong. I love blue october. rock on!

    General CommentThis is the pivot of the album (Foiled). Justin has laid out the history and this song encapsulates the transition from his old (horribly failed) relationship, to his new (he's now engaged) relationship.

    The first verse is the old relationship. "An icing drip below your lip" echoes the wedding in "Congratulations" and "we undo the math" is easy enough to equate with the fact that 1+1 doesn't make 2 anymore (more accurately 1 doesn't "+" 1 anymore, if that makes sense to anyone besides me).

    The second half of the song is the new relationship. A friend who has become more (A sudden slip from where / We used to be a year ago) and has shown Justin that love is worth the gamble (and the effort).
    "I might crumble, I might take a fall again / But you're my everlasting friend" will make perfect sense to anyone in a really good relationship (I mean soul-mate territory, here). I was told before I got married that, if she's the right one, we would become each others' best friend. That is absolutely true, and finding that is worth the chance that something bad could happen on the way.
    The story of "Foiled" is that love can happen again with the right person. One of the definitions for foiled means to make something brighter by placing it in the proper, complementary setting, and another is to stop something bad from continuing.

    Justin is a genius.

    General CommentI'm very intrigued by Justin...anyone know his history? I'm assuming by his writing that he's battled a lot of demons and perhaps still is. Saw them in concert recently--wow!

    General CommentFor anyone else who wants to know more history buy the Argue With a Tree DVD and watch the concert, and in extras watch the Sidewalk Chalk section and the last Confession

    General CommentThis song is written to an ex-girlfriend who now lives far away. He wants to assure her that he's recovered from the breakup ("I'm picking up my chin at last"), but he misses her a lot and longs for the day that he can see her again ("will you be coming home?").

    On a personal level, this song reminds me of an old friend who is now working in a foreign country.

    General Commenti think it's also in part making that leap from friendship to more, then losing it all, but you recover eventualy
