"on my friends" as written by and Joe Mcalinden Douglas Stewart....
My friend says that the end holds nothing more
He don't hide his shame
Says its all the same
Like a man without a name
Old days asleep in the shade by the Brandywine
See a dog get paid
See a boy behave
Every bone deserves a grave
But I heard the Good Lord's warning
Like he might not forget by the morning
With no more terrifying thoughts of dying
Ooh oooooh oooh
My Lord, I'm climbing aboard and I'm going home
No time to lose, no time to pack
Take a step and take it back
But I heard the Good Lord's warning
Like he might not forget by the morning
With no more terrifying thoughts of dying
Ooh ooooh oooh

Keep on with the living you'll soon enough be dead
You got the whole world spinning in your head
And you don't want to give it up (don't give it up, don't give it up)
Cause no one should be sorry
We're just another day
You can say you'll be back
But you won't ever go away (won't go away, won't go away)
Cause love that never leaves is never ever welcome back
And I'm running out of skin thick enough to hide in (won't go away, won't go away)
Now hand in hand we're back in time we're chasing the train
Looking back looking back to wave goodbye
We're headed for the same disaster (don't give it up, don't give it up)

    General CommentI really love this song,
    I know I probably wont look at it the same way as anyone else but really it hits something in me,
    and I'm glad its got such simple lines and makes such an impact.

    I know there are many ways to interpret any lyrics but in my head I almost imagined some kind of motion picture.

    A boy/man who has grown to become mentally ill from depression,
    "tonight we'll enjoy the time we had but in the morning i'll leave before you wake"
    I viewed that as he is leaving to get help in the morning, and wont be home again until he feels better.
    I don't think of it as he is sleeping next to someone, because he doesn't seem to depict a lover in the song.
    The lines "No more living alone, no more running away" he's more of talking about in his head,
    he's done running away from his mental illness and living alone in it.
    "focus your thoughts, breath deeply and make it through the dark"
    This is a type of advice he is giving himself and reminding himself to get through the night/day and the rest he has to live.
