  • Lyrics
  • This song is about how we all need people and experiences that can get us through the pain we deal with day to day. Skillet's lead singer John Cooper explained on WayFM why he wrote this song. He said when he was 14 his mother died and he didn't have a very good relationship with his dad, and they would fight all the time. So every week he would look forward to those Friday nights where spent the night at his best friend's house. He said he never would've been able to get through those years without his best friend there: "Through all the hard times in my life, those nights kept me alive." >>
