"Those Nights" as written by and John Cooper....
I remember when
We used to laugh
About nothing at all
It was better than going mad
From trying to solve all the problems we're going through
Forget 'em all
'Cause all those nights we would stand and never fall
Together we faced it all
Remember when we'd

Stay up late and we'd talk all night
In a dark room lit by the tv light
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive

We'd listen to the radio play all night
Didn't want to go home to another fight
Through all the hard times in my life
Those nights kept me alive

I remember when
We used to drive
Anywhere but here
As long as we'd forget our lives
We were so young and confused that we didn't know
To laugh or cry
Those nights were ours
They will live and never die
Together we'd stand forever
Remember when we'd

Those nights belong to us
There's nothing wrong with us

I remember when
We used to laugh
And now I wish those nights would last

    General CommentThis song is the anthem of one of my best friend and my friendship. She was always there for me during a really tough time in my life...but since we both started college in August '08 I realized we're a lot different now than we were when we were 11 years old and in the 6th grade. We only went to the same school for that one year. But we ended up going to the same college...dorm rooms right next to each other's somehow...and the whole academic year almost we weren't able to have a civil conversation and now I haven't really talked to her in months except for random text messages and a phone call to tell her something. I haven't been to her house in almost a year. This song makes me cry every time I hear it because I think of those nights where we had so much fun and we were there for each other, etc and I don't have that anymore. Great song nonetheless.

    General Commentya, but this song eminds me that those family probelms can still be there, even when your friends arent. this song is about all those past memories that you have with your freinds that make you smile, but now they are gone. this song is written in a happy tone though which is another reason i like it. It really makes you this about all those night just hanging out, or hidin out, with your friends

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my friendship with my best friend, it's like the anthem of our friendship. It's pretty self-explanatory, it's about how friends go through life's trials together, and how a true friend is there for you. You can share both the good and the bad times together.

    General CommentI love this song. It really represents my best friend and I, so I put some of the lyrics in our photo album. MUHUHAHA she hates skillet. (She's into screamo) but me and my other goodfriend (we;re like a trio seperated by states) and I love it. We're crossing our fingers hoping she won't know it's from Skillet. lol.

    General CommentThis would have to be one of my favorite Skillet songs!!

    It just reminds me that I have people to be there for me when my life is just spiraling down and just messed up. Just having friends that love you for who you are, they dont care about what you do or don't have, they just have they best time with the real you.
