Little friend, what ever happened?
You should know I went down so hard
Trying to keep the family together
The family together

Sweet friend, know I love you
And I've been struggling so hard, so hard
Trying to keep the family together
The family together

When I look in your eyes
I see me looking back
It's kind of creepy how you own my heart
Yeah, you own my heart
Yeah, you own my heart

Let's stay together

Sweet friend, was I born to give you a name
And then be erased
All because I couldn't keep it together
Couldn't keep it together?

Little friend, I know I've made it
So, so much harder on us
And lost you
Because I couldn't keep it together

When I look in your eyes
I see me looking back
It's kind of creepy how you own my heart
Yeah, you own my heart
Yeah, you own my heart

Let's stay together

    General Commentthis song always upsets me so much.
    just becuase it is clearly abotu his daughter and his failing marraige.

    "Sweet friend,
    was I born to give you a name and then be erased
    all because I couldn't keep it together,
    couldn't keep it together?"

    gets me everytime, kevins voice sounds amazing though.

    General Commenti agree with all of those. i put this song on repeat and plan on singing along until i cough up blood. it has so much emotion and sadness, but he sounds like he really does have it all together. god.

    General CommentI love this song because it's so atypical of Of Montreal. Just an acoustic guitar and Kevin (metaphorically) weeping into it.
    Oh Alabee!
