    I think this song is about someone coping with depression. There is a friend who comes to visit, to strengthen and give advice. The last paragraph is talking about days lost due to depression are never coming back. These stolen days are enough and don't spend even more time under depression.

    This is about a trip made to visit someone close, a friend that didn' t expect it to see who is coming to see him. The place is Malibu, most likely Zuma Beach. Notice of the visit had not being given to this person because words (not risks) can scare thoughts away. This person/ friend is in a sort of pain, maybe close to his physical and emotional end. The dawn that he thought would not come again, came as always does and his friend is there and tears too (crying like a baby). There is no end to love and. Stolen days are what is enough!
