We say we try
To say goodbye
But it's harder than we thought
And it's harder than we want
It's alright
It's alright

So my friends
Well they call me on their phones
And say Luke is dead
It's the worst thing that I've known
It's so hard to be alone
It's alright
It's alright

Time can't stop the soul
I became the void you couldn't know
So I'll trust that the reason you became afraid
Was the same old song we sung away

We only feel
The way we do because
Because is just another word
For what it was

And I know that you are gone
But just know I wrote this song
It's for you
It's for you

Time can't stop the soul
I became the void you couldn't know
So I'll trust that the reason you became afraid
Was the same old song we sung away

Hey, Montana
How are you?
Hey, Montana
I miss you

Hey, Montana
How are you?
Hey, Montana
I miss you

Hey, Montana
How are you?
Hey, Montana
I miss you

    General CommentI'd say friends drifting away and eventually passing away. The lyricist finds out and is depressed. Meanwhile, another friend pushes him away fearing the hurt of losing another. That's just my interpretation. I love LVD, no surprise bout the lack of comments. This awesome band doesn't get nuff credit.

    General CommentI agree. It seems to me that this song is about depression, whether it being about an actual person or that person is a metaphor for something else (although, he does sing "just know I wrote this / it's for you"), this is such a beautiful song. I am also a huge LVD fan and this is one of my favorites of their songs. This needs to get out there.
    Kudos to Letterman for putting the band on his show.
