Sorry I'm only
Human you know me
Grown up oh no guess again

My days always
Dry up and blow away
Sometimes I could do that too
But make no mistake that

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end

Progress, changing
Growing then giving up
Somehow we're never quite prepared
But I understand it

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end

So taking you with me would be like
Taking all your money to the grave
It does no good to anyone especially
The one you're trying to save
But it's so hard not to save

When you need a friend
You could count on anyone
But you know I'll defend
The tragedy that we knew as
The end

    General CommentI think she is trying to say, "kill yourself, kill yourself now, just end your sad miserable existence as soon as possible...don't think...just put the gun in your mouth and squeeze..cause life sucks and you are dying anyway."

    Well, maybe she is just talking about the loss of a friend...and impossible situations to solve in relationships...but when I listen..I just think,
    if I ever try to kill myself...this shall be the song I'll play during the termination...or if maybe I'm contemplating it, and I just need one final push...I can look to this song..and know what to do.
