I'm watching a friend self-destruct

And dig a deeper grave

My words are falling on deaf ears

I don't think she'll be saved

No matter what I do or say

She keeps on falling back

I'll keep on pushing 'till the end

To get her back on track

I sit back in my little corner

The light of truth is lit

But she follows the darker path of lies

It hurts and yet she walks it

She puts herself in the line of fire

Then complains about the pain

I pull her out she goes back in

This is driving me insane


I'm always there to help her up

Whenever she falls down

The other guys just use her up

Then leave her on the ground

I've tried so hard to be the guy

To which she can always turn

But every time I help her out

I'm left behind to burn

I build her up with self esteem

And watch her slowly crash

I try to catch the fiery wreak

But my hearts been burnt to ash


And now I sit alone again

As the embers smoke and spark

The lights are on and all is bright

But my visions getting dark

I'm watching a friend self-destruct

And dig a deeper grave

My words are falling on deaf ears

I don't think she'll be saved.
