"I Said It Before" as written by and Pete Jackson Gerald Jackson....
You walked away since there was nothing to say
(And now)
And now you're gone
I like it better this way
And every promise that you never could make
(Is history)
Like you and me today
(You and me today)

You turn your back on all the friends that you played
(Now you)
Could never be a fucking friend anyway
You are a coward and a liar at best
(Keep walking, kid)
And choke on your regret
(Choke on your regret)

I said it before
I won't say it again
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it till the end (x2)

That kind of feeling, learning how to stand tall
(Once again)
I guess you'll have no shoes to fill in the end
(Some friend)
A straight shooter and it came from the chest
(Now you're back)
Shooting blanks and missing marks
Just like the rest
(Marks just like the rest)

I said it before
I won't say it again
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it till the end (x2)

There's something wrong
With the way this played out
A scene too long that the writers cut out
(And we thought we'd never see the end)
Started learning what it means to stand proud
You've found this life
Now it's yours to carry out

I said it before
I won't say it again
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it till the end (x2)

I said it before
(I said it before)
I won't say it again
(I won't say it again)
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it till the end
(I'll take it bit by bit and make it)

I said it before
(I said it before)
I won't say it again
(I won't say it again)
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it
I'll take it bit by bit
And make it till the end

    General Commenti may be completely off on this, but i think the song is about how life doesn't turn out the way you think it's supposed to..
    "There's something wrong
    With the way this played out"

    ...and how people will always let you down no matter how much you trust them..
    "You turn your back on all the friends that you played
    (Now you)
    Could never be a fucking friend anyway
    You are a coward and a liar at best
    (Keep walking, kid)
    And choke on your regret
    (Choke on your regret)"
