"True Friends" as written by and Oliver Scott Sykes Jordan Keith Attwood Fish....
I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
'Cause I’ll forget but I’ll never forgive you
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
True friends stab you in the front
It’s funny how
Things work out
Such a bitter irony
Like a kick right to the teeth
It fell apart
Right from the start
But I couldn’t even see
The forest for the trees
(I’m afraid you asked for this)
You got a lot of nerve
But not a lot of spine
You made your bed
When you worried about mine
This ends now
I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
'Cause I’ll forget but I’ll never forgive you
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
True friends stab you in the front
I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
You broke my heart and there’s nothing you can do
And now you know, now you know
True friends stab you in the front
It’s kind of sad
'Cause what we had
Well it could of been something
I guess it wasn't meant to be
So how dare you
Try and steal my flame
Just 'cause yours faded
Well hate is gasoline
A fire fueling all my dreams
(I’m afraid you asked for this)
You got a lot of nerve
But not a lot of spine
You made your bed
When you worried about mine
This ends now

I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
'Cause I’ll forget but I’ll never forgive you
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
True friends stab you in the front
I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
You broke my heart and there’s nothing you can do
And now you know, now you know
True friends stab you in the front

You can run
But you can’t hide
Time won’t help you
'Cause karma has no deadline

You can run
But you can’t hide
Time won’t help you
'Cause karma has no deadline

I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
'Cause I’ll forget but I’ll never forgive you
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
True friends stab you in the front

I wouldn’t hold my breath if I was you
You broke my heart and there’s nothing you can do
And now you know, now you know
True friends stab you in the front

And now you know, now you know
True friends stab you in the front
And now you know, now you know
True friends stab you in the front

    General CommentI love this song so much! Bit off topic, but has anyone heard of the band FROM INSIDE?? Well I read on Twitter that Oli Sykes and Jordan Fish have written all the music for them cos they are good friends in the UK. Check out their music video for their single BE YOURSELF - FROM INSIDE by searching on Youtube, it sounds very BMTH but still its ridiculous good obviously. Mad that they are doing this too for friends bands now, really love them :D

    General Comment"True friends stab you in the front"
    Is this a Thrice reference or more of a general reference to the common saying?

    General CommentOrganized lyrics since LyricFind is still being a bitch about it:
    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    'Cause I'll forget but I'll never forgive you
    Don't you know? Don't you know?
    True friends stab you in the front

    It's funny how things work out
    Such a bitter irony
    Like a kick right to the teeth

    It fell apart
    Right from the start
    But I couldn't even see
    The forest for the trees
    (I'm afraid you asked for this)

    You got a lot of nerve
    But not a lot of spine
    You made your bed
    When you worried about mine
    This ends now

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    'Cause I'll forget but I'll never forgive you
    Don't you know? Don't you know?
    True friends stab you in the front

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    You broke my heart
    And there's nothing you can do
    Now you know, now you know
    True friends stab you in the front

    It's kind of sad
    'Cause what we had
    Well, it could have been something
    I guess it wasn't meant to be

    So how dare you,
    Try and steal my flame,
    Just 'cause yours faded?
    Well hate is gasoline
    A fire fuelling all my dreams
    (I'm afraid you asked for this)

    You got a lot of nerve
    But not a lot of spine
    You made your bed
    When you worried about mine
    This ends now

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    'Cause I'll forget but I'll never forgive you
    Don't you know? Don't you know?
    True friends stab you in the front

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    You broke my heart
    And there's nothing you can do
    Now you know, now you know
    True friends stab you in the front

    You can run
    But you can't hide
    Time won't help you
    'Cause karma has no deadline

    You can run
    But you can't hide
    Time won't help you
    'Cause karma has no deadline

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    'Cause I'll forget but I'll never forgive you
    Don't you know? Don't you know?
    True friends stab you in the front

    I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you
    You broke my heart
    And there's nothing you can do
    Now you know, now you know
    True friends stab you in the front

    And now you know, now you know
    True friends stab you in the front

    And now you know, now you know
    True friends stab you in the front

    General Commentis it just me or does everyone else find the video disturbing? I think it needs explaining so feel free to help out. it is a great song though. I think Oli Sykes said it was about how you know who your true friends are when you are trying to recover from a drug addiction I think?

    My OpinionI like this song but I think "true friends stab you in the front" is kind of an awkward fit into the song, I understand what it means an the point hes trying to put across but I think it would sound better if it was worded differently.
