Conor Oberst – College lyrics

When I'm feeling down and it's hard for me to see
I just think of when you slept over watching over me
And it makes me feel better, but really not that much
I reach out my hand frightened to throw your hand a
You taught me how to play this thing then you left me
I'm running from my sadness and I'm running from my

Something deep inside of me will always miss you
But now you're gone and there is nothing I can do
But like it ever was,
My guitar needs tuning and the tv's in a fuss
I lay awake and cry at night waiting for the sound

Of your foot steps coming up the stairs while I watch a
Show downtown
You taught me how to play this thing, then you left me
I'm running from my sadness and I'm running from fear

A broken string, a broken heart is all I have to hold
But just like you have always been I'll try to be as
I lost a real good friend today but you had to leave

And now I hope, and every night I pray
That you are kept safe and brought back to me someday
I miss you and I love you, this you already know
What I didn't tell you is that you're my hero
