When you realize you need your friends,
They leave,
When you're going through a rough spot,
They leave.

And the weird thing is,
They're always there.

A phone call away,
Or a short drive,
Even a simple text message,
But still, they're not there.

Even when they're standing right in front of you,
There still not there.

And it's when you have nothing left,
And you're screaming out unheard for help,
It's then that it hits you.

No matter how close they are,
They're still not there.
