sometimes i wake up with a smile. it's been forever since i have had a turn. it's always you or someone else. and i won't fake it anymore. i'll spend the next three hours driving in my car. to think of ways to say i'm happy when you're gone. to say i'm better off alone. on the drive back home. i listened to you talk. but didn't care. i knew exactly what you'd say before you said a thing. the time we spend together always ends up the same way. and if this is how i feel then i'll just say it like i mean. i'm sorry that i came. it's over today. and nothing that you say now will make this worth saving. how long did you think i'd stay. it hurts me to see you this way. i'm sorry. i came here to tell you it's over. always trying to wage a war. don't you smile anymore. talking ourselves dizzy gets us nowhere. we'll see how we feel later on and come back with our armor on. and see if saying nothing gets us somewhere. and when it's all over and done. i'll blame you. every time i wonder why. i'll blame you. now that it's all said and it's done. i blame you. i don't know just what it is. i fell asleep and woke up with the peace of mind to tell you that it's over

    General CommentHOLY SH*T! Is it just me, or is this song just I These lyrics are so moving and just overall amazing. It's about coming back to see someone again, knowing that you have to leave, but you're just coming back to tell them that it's over for good, and that you blame them. Waking up ready to tell them this for once. Wow...

    General Commenti disagree
    i think this song is about ending a friendship..
    hince the title..with friends like you..
    saying he doesnt need them to be happy anymore
    that this person makes him feel like shit because he can do anything to make them feel better (dont you smile anymore..)
    that the person brings themselves down so much it wears on their "friends"
    this song is amazing , yes.
