about

'He Never Came Home' as performed by Roughneck Riot.

lyrics

It's too easy to fall when the world rests on your shoulders,
All too quickly the brightest of flames can flicker and fade away.
But you didn’t have to turn your back on everything you had
because it all still meant something to us.

I hope the city streets are paved with gold
And you can mean something to someone without the tales you told.

Cos we were gonna rule the world some day
With high hopes and empty pockets no one could stand in our way.
The nights that never ended and the secrets that we shared - who knew it'd mean nothing in the end?

It's too easy to fall when the world rests on your shoulders,
All too quickly the brightest of flames can flicker and fade away.
It was hard to read fact from fiction - it was hard to see the real truth, And after all these years i still feel i never really knew you.

I hope the shores show you a horizon that never ends,
And you can be true to yourself in the company of new friends.

Cos we were gonna rule the world some day,
With high hopes and empty pockets no one could stand in our way.
Those nights that never ended and the secrets that we shared - who knew it'd mean nothing in the end?

We walked for hours under neon stars,
The dirty ocean waves soaked way all of our fears,
We talked for hours of old wounds and stars,
That air of cheap regret..

We watched the naivety of youth slip away,
All innocence is lost along with trouble free days,
We come to realise that all there was of a friendship is dead.

(The air of cheap regret)
Reaffirming who we are,
& what it all meant.
Do we still share memories,
or did you forget?
