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 CommentTo me, the song is about loss and grieving, over something that can no longer, no matter what you do, be the same again. Be it a death or the end of a realtionship. She's talking about the feeling of loosing something that can't be replaced.
    i like bemenow's interpretation of it - when you realize that something is over and you end up having to let go of it, even if you don't want to and not prepared to do so either.
    Beautiful song, so sad, but beautiful
