tell your mom you need a day off
so we can play out in the rain
catch a ride to the mall
go down to the arcade
cus that's where all the cool kids play
tell your mom you need a day off
cus i don't feel like school today
ride a board down the hill
and to the playground
where everything's okay
tell you're mom you will be home late
cus building cabins in the woods is hard work
you always know
that i'll be there
cus summertime
is coming near
my closest friend
you'll always be
you are the only friend like me
tell your mom to make us lunch now
cus we worked up an appetite
G-I joe and karate matches in the backyard
where everything's alright
now i can see that things have changed
we've gone our separate ways now
and it's not you and me anymore
why can't it be the way it was
when they were ours, they've lost their touch
my closest friend, i couldn't see
you are the million, i'm the weak
and i guess i'll hold my breath
there is noone that i'll be pushing
and i guess i'll hold my breath
there is noone that i'll be pushing
and i guess i'll hold my breath
there is noone that i'll be pushing
and i guess i'll hold my breath

    General CommentI love this song! I can relate to this song so much. To me, its about remembering all this good times you spent with someone, be it a best freind, significant other, etc. Its remembering everything you did in the past when it was a hard time but you had somewhere to go to get away from everything. But now its looking back on those times and realizing that you and this person are growing apart and as much as you dont want to, you cant stop it.

    General Commentah actually this isnt the name of the song and it doesnt go
    "there is no one that ill be pushing"

    its

    "there is no harm in hoping for change"

    there are some other things wrong here too...

    but this is definitly at the tp of my favorite songs ever b/c it makes me think of me and all my friends, and how we are all away at college and distace has pulled u apart a bit, but we are all"hometown kids" like he says. its a great song.

    General CommentThis song is... completely awesome. I totally relate to it. You have someone that is so close to you, you can tell them ANYTHING and they dont think your stupid. You like the same things, you have so much fun together... and then you loose that person. I know how much it hurts. Sometimes its unbearable. But no matter how terrible.. u have to keep on. You cant push someone into doing somthing thats not in their will. You have to wait it out and "hold your breath." Everything happens for a reason
