"Give" as written by Jason Erik Navarro, Daniel Jay Lukacinsky and Nunley Royce Asher....
I've got a million things going around in my head
And I never really paid attention to what you said no
And now I wish that I would have said goodbye,
But its much too late, and all I do is give and all you do is take

[Chorus]
You've gotta look before you leap
And take a good look at your so-called friends
Yeah, that's the company you keep
You've got words coming at you from all directions
You gotta look before you leap
And take a good look at your so-called friends
Yeah, that's the company you keep - they got the words, oh yeah

There's a lot of things that were never said
And if we'd grown up faster then I would have stood up
But-I should have cut you loose a long time ago,
But its much too late
And all I do is give and all you do is take

[Chorus]

Well, there never was a time when you didn't try to lord me over,
Never was there a time when I felt bad for you
Whenever you had the chance, the way I see it
You tried to screw me over
Never was there a time when I wasn't there for you

[Chorus]

They keep flying their flags
But they're never gonna understand

    General CommentI agree it's about a losing friend who wasn't that great.The line that says "now i wish that i would have said goodbye" makes me think even though it was a give and take relationship, the singer misses his friend.

    General CommentI suppose you could say it's about losing friends, but you have to put it into better context or else you could sem to mean that they are literally lost and therefore dead. I think it's basically about breaking off from a friend who one never really liked in the first place and only wishing one thought to have done it sooner.

    General CommentIt also looks like a pretty one-sided relationship. The singer tries his best to be a good friend, but all the friend does is take it for granted and treat him poorly, and he's finally realizing it.
