Song Meaning
Verse 1
It wasn't it more than a minute
That first one was the test
He was listening but I don't think he heard the rest
It was easy to fall, but not easy to take a stand
With the sound of her voice or the touch of her hand
Verse 2
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die
Verse 3
He doesn't think of tomorrow
And he seldom looks back
When he did he saw failure
And a future so black
So, he sees himself through sad eyes
That have never caught the look of love
He'll never see what he's giving up
Verse 4
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die
Verse 5
You might think he's a victim
He just thinks its a guess
Its not the question, its who you ask
And the boats fly on Friday
And you're never gonna see him again
It wasn't love that did him in
Verse 6
Everyone's heard the reasons why
A kid would let the poison creep inside
He said he wasn't scared, but you know he lied
The way some people die
