Step one, you say, We need to talk.
He walks, you say, Sit down. It’s just a talk.
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

  1. 01:00am, got diagnosed with an untreatable brain tumor 2 years ago in my mid twenties and my mom is currently dying in the hospital with cancer that was only discovered 2 months ago.

    My dad is staying with her all night and this song comes up in my recommended out of nowhere

  2. Nostalgic, hidden memories unlocked❤❤❤

  3. I used to hate this song as a kid cuz it made me so sad but man this shit hits as an adult

  4. Too much worrying changes only your focus

  5. One of those dire lessons in life, that no one ever seems to know how to do, "How to save a life". Lord knows I could've used the manual some years ago. Had I known…

  6. I don't know who needs to hear it but for me this song's always about how I lost my friends choosing myself instead of trying to save them.

    We don't talk about that often but it's fucking hurt when you try to be superhero for your dear ones but that's not enough.

    Maybe one day we'll forgive ourselves…

  7. The engineer did a great job on this 1. got to see his drum recording breakdown of this song on the produce like a pro channel. if you're in to recording and wondering why things sound the way they do check it out. how I first heard about this actually

  8. Have you ever had a group of people gunning for you? I have for the last year..because a psychopath and her guardians kidnapped my daughter. She is safe now. They retaliated like rabid animals when I tried to press charges…they came after me with everything they could. My door has been knocked on more this year than I can count…police, CPS, animal control, and SVU DETECTIVES at our house all year…my dog died in my arms…my best buddy in the whole world…passed away from cancer….I got covid and flu and my lung collapsed. I almost died now I'm a long hauler….I can't take much more of this life. They are still after me…police at my house last Friday and Saturday…I'm done ✔️

  9. Ojalá pudiera haber hecho más por mi hermosa amiga, se fue demasiado pronto. Es una herida que va a doler siempre, pero vive en mi corazón para siempre ❤😞

  10. I remember the first time hearing this song; it was in a Spanish ad, about a product of fruit juice and milk (Bifrutas was its name), and people having fun. When I was a kid, I did not understand English language all that well, but a few years later,… Holy Cannoli was it dissonant.

  11. When you know exactly when you went wrong the pain is worst. I’m sorry brother, I should’ve been there for you. Rest in peace and I will continue as long as I can.

  12. It reminds me my old sufferings

  13. we watch the songs but i wait for someone to talk to me, i am so lonely it hurts, and i bet im not the only one

  14. From x to here, love ya bro) u saved my life 💖 long live jah ✨
