"Laura" as written by Christopher Owens and Chet White....
Where did it start?
We used to be friends
Now when I run into you
I pretend I don't see you, I know that you hate me

I've tried to be tough
I've tried to be mean
I don't want to be like this
And I hope that you listen, all I'm trying to say is

Reach out and touch me, I'm right here
And I don't want to fight anymore
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friend until the end of it all

I know I've made mistakes
But I'm asking you give me a break
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friends forever

You've been a bitch
I've been an ass
I don't want to point the finger
I just know I don't like it, I don't wanna do this

What can I do?
Is it too late?
I just want to say I'm sorry
And I hope you listen, all I'm trying to say is

Reach out and touch me, I'm right here
And I don't want to fight anymore
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friend until the end of it all

I know I've made mistakes
But I'm asking you give me a break
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friends forever

Laura, baby, I'm right here
And I don't wanna fight anymore
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friend until the end of it all

I know I've made mistakes
But I'm asking you to give me a break
I really wanna be your friend forever
Friends forever

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure it's "And I don't wanna fight any more" the whole way through, not just the last time.

    General CommentOKAY... just a couple mistakes
    1. And I don't want to FIGHT anymore

    General CommentHe said in an interview this song is about the best friend of an ex-girlfriend who was getting jealous that her friend (the singer's ex) was spending all of her time with him.

    He said this song was about trying to 'clear the air' with her.

    General CommentI first heard this on XMU. The tune was stuck in my head but I couldn't figure out who the band or what the song was. I grazed a friends blog with the song Lust for Life. I loved the song...so I czeched out the band. I've found the song I've longed for. Yesss.
