Don't give up, it takes a while
I have seen this look before
And it's alright
You're not alone
If you don't love this anymore
I hear that you've slipped again
I'm here 'cause I know you'll need a friend

And you know that accidents can happen
And it's okay,
We all fall off the wagon sometimes
It's not your whole life
It's only one day
You haven't thrown everything away.

Take some time and learn to breathe
And remember what it means
To feel alive
And to believe
Something more than what you see
I know there's a price for this
But some things in life you must resist

And you know that accidents can happen
And it's okay,
We all fall off the wagon sometimes
It's not your whole life
It's only one day
You haven't thrown everything away.

I hear that you've slipped again
I'm here 'cause I know you'll need a friend

And you know that accidents can happen
And it's okay,
We all fall off the wagon sometimes
It's not your whole life
It's only one day
You haven't thrown everything away.

You know that accidents can happen
And it's okay,
We all fall off the wagon sometimes
It's not your whole life
It's only one day
You haven't thrown everything away.

So don't give up
It takes a while.

    It's all about how people screw up but, no matter how badly they screw shit up, they can always make things better if they ask for forgiveness. They will be forgiven. I just don't know what will forgive them.

    this song talks about a struggle between a person and an addiction... that person is trying to quite and in the process of doing so they slip up and they think they are going to die cuz of that... and they need somebody there to help them get back on track.. cuz they feel as if no one is there to help them. its a sad song that it is...if you can get behind the meaning and knowing that you have once had this happen it's really easy to understand.

    It just means that everyone does something they regret...everyone messes up we're just human. And its just saying that just because you messed up once doesnt mean it has to affect your whole life...everyone needs to move on and he's saying he'll be there for you when you need him...

    Plus it has one kick ass guitar solo

    Just cuz you screw up, it doesnt mean your a screw up. one screw up, doesnt end your life. you can start over... try again...
