"Word Forward" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett and Nate Mendel....
Goodbye Jimmy, farewell youth
I must be on my way I have had enough of you
I was a young man proud and true
Just a simple boy with nothing else to lose
Years that I've wasted these I owe you's
They're just fucking words
This is life or death
It's time to clear the air you better save your breath
Say have you heard
Say have you heard
The poison in my heart voices in my head
Years that I've waited these I owe you's
I meant every word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
But it's only words
I meant every word
They're just fucking words
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward

Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward
Word for word for word forward

    General CommentI have a hard time figuring out just what this song is about exactly.

    Dave stated at the VH1 Storytellers gig that it is about his close friend Jimmy Swanson dying and how after something like that happens, all you can do is move forward.

    I get that, but I don't quite understand how the "I meant every word...they're just fucking words" stuff ties in with that.

    But I guess in the end, it's just about moving on and going forward.
