If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
We may have had a bit too much, but no one has to know.
But if I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
I'll carry you home.

We came here for the weekend. It was your friend's idea.
It started as just a few of us, now everybody's here.
You took my hand and you told me "Dan, I'm not really one for crowds",
You took off out the window as fast as legs allowed.

I thought if you just slowed down we might start making sense.

If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
Well we may have had a bit too much, but no one has to know.
But if I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
I'll carry you home.

So you shivered under covers in the tail end of the summer.
A certain sick no medicine could tame.
And we were just kids, that's the hardest part.
The things we build just to rip them apart.
Oh, you ripped me apart.

I thought if you just slowed down we might start making sense.

If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
If I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
Well I came here with my baby, I'm not leaving here alone.
But if I walk away then who's gonna carry you home?
I'll carry you home.

    My InterpretationSo i could be wrong and this song could be about romance and relationships. But what i see it as is a song about a girl who died of a terminal illness.

    The first verse is talking about a get together with all of the girls friends for a weekend, possibly to cheer up the girl and make her feel loved and supported, even though she ends up feeling uncomfortable anyways.

    The second verse talks about a sickness no medicine could tame and the girl being succumbed to the sickness. The writer talks about dealing with the loss and how hard it is to have such a genuine relationship just to have it taken away from him.

    I think the prechorus under this context talks about how crazy and fast such life occurrences can happen, and there's no time to think about what to do next, all of it is a blur and doesn't slow down until its over.

    The chorus in my opinion is a pledge to the girl to always be there for her even when others walk away or give up on her. Talks about the special bind between the two, and how he will always be there
