about

Written about a friend who never let me down and always picked me up when I screwed up, but I still kept pushing him away.

lyrics

You know you're alone
When you're walking home
Drunk out of your mind
You could have taken a cab
You had enough change for the bus
But you chose to feel the way, because thats the only way you'll learn

(chorus)
When all I wanted was a light
For my God damn smoke on the way home
But you lit up this highway
Like you were the fucking moon
And I wish you'd just let me crash
Into the River bank
And I'd finally find my way back
Although it would be the hard way

Now mountains to break
And kindness it fades
You could have taken the easy out
But you chose to feel the way

(chorus)
(bridge)
(chorus)
