They found you dead on a Saturday morning
I remember 'cause that's when
We used to have band practice
Before you got into heroin
And I got into college far away

Yeah, I blame myself sometimes
For how you died
I could have been a better friend
I could have been there for you in the end

And it might be cruel to mention
You'd do anything for attention
I'm not saying that's your intention
'Cause I know that you were sad

We all make mistakes, and we all have our pain
I don't blame you, I just miss you
Wish I had my old friend back

We were friends from the time that we first met
Your parents thought I would be a positive influence
You gave me LSD and my first line of coke
I showed you black metal and read you suicide notes

And I still have a scar from a joke we took too far
We were stabbing in the dark
And yeah, it makes me kinda sad
But on the other hand, it's the only memento of you I have

We all make mistakes and we all have our pain
I don't blame you I just miss you
Wish I had my old friend back

@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.
