Three Days Grace – The High Road lyrics

I told you I was hurt
Bleeding on the inside
I told you I was lost
In the middle of my life
There's times I stayed alive for you
There's times I would have died for you
There's times it didn't matter at all

Chorus:
Will you help find the right way up
Or let me take the wrong way down
Will you straighten me out or make me take the long way around
I took the low road in
I'll take the high road out
I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without

Standing in the dark
I can see your shadow
You're the only light
That's breaking through the window
There's times I stayed alive for you
There's times I would have died for you
There's times it didn't matter at all

Chorus
Will you help find the right way up
Or let me take the wrong way down
Will you straighten me out or make me take the long way around
I took the low road in
I'll take the high road out
I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without

Well I'm not gonna give it away
Not gonna let it go just to wake up someday
Gooooone, goooone
The worst part is looking back and knowing that
I was wrong

Chorus
Help me find the right way up
Or let me take the wrong way down
Will you straighten me out
Or make me take the long way around
I took the low road in
I'll take the high road out
I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without (x2)

    This is song is actually pretty cool when I first heard this one from their album but one day I thought I should check it out. Well. According to me. It's as if Adam wrote this about a friend who betrayed him really badly. They told each other to help each other every time they could. Adam helped him/her every time he could but then when Adam needed help, he told the friend about every bad feeling he was having and told him that he know something bad was coming his way, his friend took no interest at all but let him down and let Adam alone to deal with a hard-to-win battle all by himself. And so Adam was hurt and he wrote this one. You can also hear the sadness and feeling in Adam's voice when you hear it. Excellent song! 5 Stars from me. A must listen song from Three Days Grace!
