who's gonna tell you when
it's too late
who's gonna tell you things
aren't so great
you can't go on
thinking that nothing's wrong
who's gonna drive you home tonight

who's gonna pick you up
when you fall
who's gonna hang it up
when you call
who's gonna pay attention
to your dreams
who's gonna plug their ears
when you scream

you can't go on
thinking that nothing's wrong
who's gonna drive you home tonight

who's gonna hold you down
when you shake
who's gonna come around
when you break

    General CommentI knew a girl once who only wanted a "friends with benefits" status between us. I wanted more. I was falling for her. This song helped me get through the nights when I knew that she was in the arms of another. Chino's voice is mesmerizing, the lyrics are powerful and the music is arguably better than the original. I wish I could say thanks to the Deftones for helping me get through those confusing, painful and lonely nights. The lyrics by the way, self explanatory.

    General CommentThis cover is so brilliantly done that it almost brings tears to my eyes. Chino's voice is hypnotizing. Absolutely perfect.
