I saw your face in a photo today
Took me back to a time that I loved so
One thing remains that still gives me pain
The fact that I never got to say don't go

Don't go

Dark days fell upon this town that year
I remember the sordid talk and tears
A scarlet letter was sewn onto you long ago
But the way you felt no one will ever know
Turn on the radio and that song would play
Oh how the irony when I look back on that day

Don't go

Late at night you would tell me that it would all be fine
Realized that our doubts weren't just mine
We would sit and contemplate just what to do
But I never thought it would be without you
Turn on the radio and that song would play
Oh how the irony when I look back on that day
Don't go

Now you're gone so I'll say our lives you changed
And I know my friend that I'll see you once again

    This song is a very interesting and great song, one of the darker ska punk songs out there. What I think this song is about is, pretty much a person had committed suicide and this is the person who's in perspective in the song's look back on the person, starting out with "i saw your face in a photo today took me back to a time that I loved so one thing remains that still gives me pain the fact that I never got to say don't go" you can tell that the impact of the person committing suicide had left the person grief stricken and how this is well ahead of the time in which it happened. The person didn't want them to go (hence the title) and as such it hurt them even worse since they never got to say goodbye or in the case of the lyrics "don't go". Overall this is one of my favorite ska punk songs and is definitely my favorite mad caddies song, and its just got this dark air about it that shows the meaning overall very well and I would say that this song is definitely 10/10 would absolutely definitely bang again.
