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 the song meaning is as follows;
    this person felt it was necessary to let someone go for their own good because this person wasn't good for them. "I'll defend the tragedy we knew as the end" so she doesnt regret the ending because she knows it was for the best no matter how much it hurts the person right now. She is telling them 'you can count on anyone, you have friends who are still there for you even if i cant be'. and she may also be saying that the friends might tell the person 'you guys will patch things back up' but she is saying this will not happen because 'i defend the tragedy that we knew as the end'.
    it was hard to let the person go but 'its harder not to save' someone you love.
