You said this time would be the last
You said that it's over
You swore to me you'd put the bottle back down
So many times I've tried to teach you
To keep you from losing another one
Cause she can see right through all the excuses you feed her
And I know that I can't find any kind of definition
Cause you seem so dead to me
Do you still ask yourself "Will they remember me?"
Do you still ask your self "Why do I even try?"
Cause we'd die fighting to keep you alive
You said so softly to me once while waiting for her
You've got so much
You know son
You've got the world on your shoulders
So carry me home
I know it won't change, no it won't change
It won't go away
And I can't bare to watch you do this to yourself another time
You said that it's over
I can't believe you'd ever lie to her
Why?
So many times I've tried to teach you
To keep you from losing her again

    General Commenti'm assuming this is one of those "Father, son" kind of talks...about girls and how you should treat them because the son needed advice and now he's lost his chance yet again with the girl, and how he [the Father] wants your life to be better than his was...just a guess

    General CommentYeah, I'd say it's about an alcoholic. Someone who was close to him and the singer is trying to teach his siginificant one that he'll end up losing everything he has.

    General CommentI met one of them on warped tour yesterday. Lovely nice guy. Actually took the time to talk to us. Though honestly I didn't recognize him at the time.

    Probably my favorite song by them.
