You, the rock in my shoe
The thorn in my side
The bear in the room
The fly in the wine
The things that you do
The license you take
When you're talking to me
You're always talking to me

And I'm pretending I'm listening
But I'm bristling inside
Thank god for caller ID
'Cause the thought of you
Makes me want to run and hide
Where did we go wrong?

We used to go bowling
We used to light fireworks in the pouring rain
We were tight, thick as thieves
Blood brothers cut from the same cloth indeed
But now we whine
Split hairs and roll our eyes
We used to go bowling

Wait, I just need a break
A second to breathe
And wipe off the slate
I'm down on my knees
Praying for you to change
It doesn't seem to work
I'm racking my brain
And you're talking to me

I'm pretending I'm listening
But I'm bristling inside
Thank god for caller ID
'Cause the thought of you
Makes me want to run and hide
Where did we go wrong?

We used to go bowling
We used to light fireworks in the pouring rain
We were tight, thick as thieves
Blood brothers cut from the same cloth indeed
But now we whine
Split hairs and roll our eyes
We used to go bowling

Make new friends but keep the old
One is silver but the other's gold
Make new friends but keep the old
One is silver but the other's gold
Make new friends but keep the old
One is silver but the other's gold
Make new friends but keep the old
Where did we go wrong?

We used to go bowling
We used to light fireworks in the pouring rain
We were tight, thick as thieves
Blood brothers cut from the same cloth indeed
But now we whine
Split hairs and roll our eyes
We used to go bowling

(Where did we go wrong?)
Make new friends but keep the old
(Where did we go wrong?)
Make new friends but keep the old
(Where did we go wrong?)

    My InterpretationWell, it seems pretty straight forward.

    It's about two best friends, tow bros who have been friends almost all of their lives. One of them is changing, or both of them. Regardless the change is driving them apart, and one friend doesn't understand why things have to be this way.

    It's about that one friend, who you never expected to grow apart from, actually fading away.

    He is missing the old days, the days when they were thick as thieves.
