Remember we promised we'd never stop,
Keep going until we all just dropped
In a town full of hotshots,
It's the one who can't hold his tongue,
Or be out run that comes undone.

So now your little tongue has split,
And all the little doggies come to have their bit,
With mouths so loud they damn near broke the speed of sound,
They don't bite they simply bark behind your back.

So hey good try, you can run all you like,
We'll still hang out from time to time,
Cause you're a mighty good friend of mine,
And it might be worth you holding on a while.

It seems to me now we're all falling,
Like dogs we all find shit to roll in,
This time we've been out done,
But by Christ we had our fun,
So I'll just sit here waiting for the sun,

So hey, good try, you can run all you like,
We'll still hang out from time to time,
Cause you're a mighty good friend of mine,
And it might be worth you holding on a while.

So hey, I know, time it goes so slow,
When you've got no mud to throw,
It seems to hit you square in the nose,
And if you come back a better man,
Only you'll know.

    General Commentthis song is beautiful.
    reminds me of losing touch within friendships but not due to wanting to.
    it's about running away from past mistakes & the realisation that you can't leave them behind until you accept them & better yourself based around them.
