​Voice of a Friend

This song is by Blue October and appears on the album Approaching Normal (2009).

Light the fire in this castle
And watch it burn into a glow
By the river fear of quite sincere
There's a drawbridge life support
There's a plank we'll have to crawl upon
But dare not look below
Where the water scene is crystal clean
And the clouds are raining snow

So hush hush baby
There's a lot of other ways to choke
We're in the freak show now
And we're dealing with a mind of its own
When too many worlds collide
I'd like to think it would be good if we talked
I ask you to not leave my side
I can't, man this is quicksand alone
So I ask you through the voice of a friend (drugs)
And why don't you stay with me
Through the voice of a friend
And why don't you stay

We're a submarine submerging (yeah)
We're simply smiling at the earth
We're sending roses to the loved ones
Who had a hand in our rebirth
But still another day I'll cling to you
For faint directions home
Where we all will sit with open arms
To try to block the rocks we've thrown

So hush hush baby
There's a lot of other ways to choke
We're in the freak show now
And we're dealing with a mind of its own
When too many worlds collide
I'd like to think it would be good if we talked
I ask you to not leave my side
I can't, man this is quicksand alone
When too many worlds collide
I'd like to think it would be good if we talked
I ask you to not leave my side
Don't leave my side at all

I ask you through the voice of a friend (drugs)
And why don't you stay with me
Through the voice of a friend
And why don't you stay
Yeah, stay with me

Through the voice of a friend (drugs)
And why don't you stay with me
Through the voice of a friend (drugs)
And why don't you stay with me
Please why don't you stay with me
God you're my voice of a friend
So why don't you stay with me, with me
