I done it to myself once again
Breakin' off a piece for everyone
I gave in good faith, in you I believed
But these efforts to connect just segregate it given time

And walls grow taller not with bricks and mortar
But with distance and indifference
And you trust like children and you break like glass
Won't you please put me back together?

Just for a minute you were my best friend
What I gave you took away, give it back

Swimmin' in a sea of nameless faces
Good natured boy wants the world to be his friend
Is that the rock tied around his ankle
That will drag him down and drown him in the end

He needs a hand to hold, he needs a hand
Do you have one to lend?
And past to present and is all he seems to know
Understand that's the reason he's afraid to give again

Just for a minute you were my best friend
What I gave you took away, took away, took away, now

It just bleeds into one anymore
It's so sad but common throw this blanket over all
Is that the state of relations that I made for myself
Cause it's cake and doubt and I won't trust again

And the fallout takes its toll
The fallout takes its toll on me and on you
When it settles will we ever be the same?
Time heals a broken heart but the scars they never go away

Just for a minute you were my best friend
Just for a minute you were my best friend
What I gave you took away, took away, took away
