  • True friends stab you in the front
    Keep you from getting what you want
    When one more fix could kill you
    They help you realize that

    You're more and less than you first had believed
    You've so much to give and there's so much you need
    Shortcuts through graveyards and a brand new way to breathe
    Three thousand miles just to learn,
    All that's gold does not all shine
    And helping words aren't always kind,
    When one more kiss could kill you,
    They help you realize that

    You're more and less than you first had believed
    You've so much to give and there's so much you need
    Shortcuts through graveyards and a brand new way to breathe
    Three thousand miles just to learn.

    How to let my guard down
    Accept the fire that has spread among us.
    And if you're feeling all right,
    You've got to play it again,
    You've got to play it again. Writer/s: DUSTIN MICHAEL KENSRUE, EDWARD CARRINGTON BRECKENRIDGE, JAMES RILEY BRECKENRIDGE, TEPPEI TERANISHI
