Once you said you'd stick 'till the end
I guess you lied, call it suicide
Now you're gone
What was so wrong that you couldn't find a way to carry on?
Second guess
Did I do my best?
There was a friend I had
Johnny was a weirdo so what did you expect?
I ain't no fucking hero
I'm just trying to survive myself

I should have known you went through it alone
I wonder why didn't you even try
You could have come to me
I would have helped you see
You could have found a way to carry on
Second guess
Did I do my best?
I was a friend I had...
Johnny was a weirdo so what did you expect?
I ain't no fucking hero
I'm just trying to survive myself
Johnny's strange behaviour was a tip-off, they say
But I ain't no fucking savior
I'm just living day by day

Little things, little lives hanging 'til the end
I say, "It don't really mean nothing"

Telling truth, telling lies
I used to have a friend
I say, "It don't really mean nothing"

Yeah, let this feeling go, let this feeling go, let this feeling go
Let this, let it go

Once you said you'd stick 'till the end
I guess you lied, call it suicide
Now you're gone
What was so wrong that you couldn't find a way to carry on?
Second guess
Did I do my best?
There was a friend I had
Johnny was a weirdo so what did you expect?
I ain't a fucking hero
I'm just trying to survive myself
Johnny's strange behaviour was a tip-off, they say
But I ain't no fucking savior
I'm just living day by day
