We used to walk these city streets, for the hours that the sun slept this town was ours
But life is mysterious, separated my fate, my brother
Where do you go when the chips are down, what do you do when there’s no one around
Playing with iron and fire
I wasn’t born a saint, your demons don’t make you a sinner, it’s what you do in the face of defeat that shows, the man you really are.
You ran away, with a needle in your arm, I know you’re better than that
These words aren’t even worth saying, you’re in love with the downfall
Seeking punishment for crimes you didn’t commit, your own judge and jury
This song is everything I wish I’d said, if even just one word could save you, I’d say it again and again, again and again
My brother can we turn back the time, won’t you speak the truth and tell me what is on your mind
You gave me so much, you showed me how to feel alive, and every breath I take I owe entirely to you
I just wish you could have seen the light within yourself, you always shone so bright
I know the fight within you, we faced the battle hand in hand, I used to reflect on the dark days, the reasons I threw you away, but now I just want my friend back.
At least you got away
What killed you wasn’t the poison in your veins, you simply shone far too bright to stay and as that old quote you lived by used to say, it’s better to burn out than to fade away.
