Did you forget about last October?
I was there for you when you got sober.
Six months, here we are again
Never thought you'd slip back in

I was gonna put it all in a letter,
To your face it would be much better
How loud do I have to scream,
To make sure you're hearing me?

And now,
There you are passed out,
An empty needle by the couch,
I think this breath,
Is your last breath,

Don't let me be right, right
You could face the truth to save your life. Why,
Even when it's there in black and white, I've
Done everything I can but, you won't even try
Every day for you was just a lie. Well,
This could be your last night alive,
Don't let me be
Don't let me be right

I'm checking on your vital signs,
The still life in your bloodshot eyes,
Looking at me like you don't even know me,
I know you're dying slowly

And as I carry you away, from here,
I whisper in your ear,

Don't let me be right, right
You could face the truth to save your life. Why,
Even when it's there in black and white, I've
Done everything I can but,
You won't even try
Every day for you was just a lie. Well,
This could be your last night alive,
Don't let me be
Don't let me be right

You're fading,
While I'm waiting,
This is stupid,
I hate it,
I hate it (hate it)

Don't let me be right
You could face the truth to save your life
Even when it's there in black and white
Done everything I can but,
You won't even try
Every day for you was just a lie
This could be your last night alive,
Don't let me be
Don't let me be
Don't let me be right

You could face the truth to save your life. I've
Done everything I can but,
You won't even try
(You won't even try, you won't even try)
This could be your last goodbye
Don't let me be
Don't let me be right

    General CommentThis song is about a man talking to his friend who's a drug and alcohol addict. I think this vecause of the refrence to the needle on thecouch which is talking about injected drugs. Also when he talks about himbeing there when his friend got sober, he obviously tryed to help his friend stop his addiction and thought he had succeded, but his friend has returned to drugs. In the song he is pleading for his friend to change his ways so that he wouldn't be right about him saying he was going to die. Awsome song I'm a huge fan. More people should find and listen to this band my uncle helped produce them and they are really good.
