This song explores the the emotional reaction of the loss of a friend to depression.


Hey man, I've been thinking a lot about you lately
Remember back in high school when we used to spend afternoons at the music store
Jammin on those 6 strings that we knew we couldn't afford
I guess I never thought about it, but maybe all your depression came from
that house that was stuck in the 70s and that cult your parents made you join
Maybe you'd have done better in Utah
Those twisted teachings were to sides of the same coin

And I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that you're not around here anymore
I mean I wasn't there for the past 8 years, so who am I to cry about it
That won’t stop me, I'm still living with regret
Somehow I think I could have stopped you, and if there's peace I hope you find it

Seeing you lay there was probably the first time I saw you not in need
There's so many times I talked you down with relative ease
So where the fuck was I when you needed me the most
You deserved so much better, you still deserve so much better

Was it cuz she broke your heart
Was it cuz you lost your job
Was it cuz you couldn't take your family
Was there ever love from the start

There's so many things I want to say, so many questions I have today
And I'm sorry this time I wasn't there, would you have listened anyway
