Life must be empty when living a lie
With something to hide and nothing to show
You have learned nothing but how to destroy
Things that friends love you couldn't leave alone

Someday it's gonna hit you between the eyes
That we're not sixteen years old anymore
One day those people that used to welcome you with open arms
Will see you coming and hide then lock the door

People that listened to you were afraid
Even friends that knew you as a kid
Now you are sorry but you'll never change
Change the things that you already did

Someday it's gonna hit you between the eyes
That the seeds have already been sown
Find your own garden because you still need space to grow
Until that time you will remain alone

Don't try to come around with your pathetic lies cause I
Can see it in your
Eyes that you will always be the same and you will never
Have to say
Goodbye it's time for truth and not for lies...
That you have always told
Your trust was bought and sold you're all alone

    General CommentHe's trying to help someone stop drinking. Match my lines up with the song lines and you'll see.
    The days melt together on a bender,
    wakes up on the bathroom floor
    but starts drinking again
    The friend is powerless

    Promised to quit, never did
    Don't hold me back
    You can't stop a friends addiction just by loving them

    The friend still trys to get them to stop
    Can't get through to them though


    I'm not doing the whole song, but you get the idea. I might be wrong, but I like my interpertation.

    General CommentTonyBar..nice interpretation. I agree with you on just about everything.

    I wouldn't be so fast to say that this is just about drinking though...it can be any drug addiction. Although a bathroom does kind of imply that the friend is vomiting, which would be linked with drinking.
