80 proof is no excuse, an apology so insincere. out of your mouth you sing out loud for everyone to hear (and i heard).

but in my own defense i feel i've been more than patient. the one thing that i can't stand is the fact you show no remorse or class enough to own up to this mistake (it's your mistake).

words fell short as your lies grew stronger and through it all i always loved her. when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never.
because of this i'm so much stronger. it took a while but i moved on, so when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never.

don't initiate a conversation that instigates a confrontation. i've found a new best friend in hatred that says that it's too damn late to save this. you're so good at making bad decisions, but even better at burning bridges. knowing everything that i know now, i'd never put the fire out. i'd rather watch you choke on the smoke from the flames until i know that only ashes remain.

words fell short as your lies grew stronger and through it all i always loved her. when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never.
because of this i'm so much stronger. it took a while but i moved on, so when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never.

when i gave an inch you'd take the mile. if i gave it, you'd take it. you claim to be the story and that's all you'll ever be - just a page in your own diary, that ain't that great to read.

words fell short as your lies grew stronger and through it all i always loved her. when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never.
because of this i'm so much stronger. it took a while but i moved on, so when you think things are getting better, remember we're best friends for never (remember we're best friends for never).

    Song MeaningThe meaning of this song is pretty obvious...

    A relationship is over, either the girl cheating on him, at least lying to him about some things...and now that its all over she realizes that this isnt how she wanted things to end up.

    So shes trying to make things better between the two of them, but she doesnt realize that the guy has moved on already and doesnt want anything to do with her at all.

    General CommentI think it has to do with a friend ruining a relationship and now they're not friends anymore. Like, it says "80 proof is no excuse...." so maybe the friend was got drunk and like, slept with the singer's girlfriend or something...
    "You show no remorse or class enough to own up to ths mistake" And the friend lied about it and wouldn't take responsibility. And they fought about it. "Words fell short as your lies grew stronger"
    "through it all I always loved her." But he still loves his girlfriend.
    "Remember we'r best friends for never" So they're no longer friends.
    The siger also says "Because of ths I'm so much stronger." So I think he's trying to say to his ex friend that he didnt ruin him by whatever he did and he's jsut stronger for it.
    And then the singer goes on to say how the friend was a bad friend: "When I gave an inch you'd take a mile"
    And then to say "You claim to be the story and that's all you'll ever be. Just a page in your own diary that ain't that great to read." Basically insulting him.
