And I can't believe that I could believe that.
And I can't believe you left me for dead man.

Cause I called you my friend.
My best friend at that.
I know that I'm loud man
But give me another chance.
I promise to keep this damn snout shut for you.
But only for you...
... Cause I love you

I should've seen the boredom in your eyes.
You dropped me off and you said your goodbyes.

Cause dad I called you my friend.
My best friend at that.
I know that I'm loud man
But give me another chance.
I promise to keep this damn snout shut for you.
But only for you...
... Cause I loved you

And I saw this man on the side of the road.
He said take my hand, that man threw me a bone.

Cause one man's trash is another man's treasure.
The way that he made me feel was better then ever.
He told me he loved me.
He meant it forever.

And I love him cause he loves me.
And all I've ever wanted was to feel loved.

    *note this song is written from christofer drew, dad's point of view*
    His fathers dad i do believe left him alone at a very young age.. And in that time he was gone he found god... It is very sad yet very touching. Another reason why i must love nsn.

    Was this also not a bonus track on the 'what is love? ' cd? It should have been on the main part of the cd :p

    This song is in the perspective of chris's own dad. Christofer's dad and chris's grandfather relationship was what this song is about.

    no, this song is about chris' grandad leaving his dad at a really young age, it's written from his dads perspective.
    and basically in the song his dad leaves, and through the pain he (chris' dad) went through, he found god.
    chris explains it in some of the live videos of this song on youtube.

    I'm pretty sure that Chris and his dad were really close. I believe he wrote this song for a friend.
