Everlasting Friend Lyrics

A heartbeat skip, relationship
Inside a bubble bath
An icing drip below your lip
So we undo the math
A sudden slip between
My pathetic sedatives
A real-life script of how
Mistakes became our medicine, so

Delay the hurtful words

    It's about addiction.

    This song is written to his ex-girlfriend who he broke up with when she moved "miles away". Even though they are no longer in a relationship, her friendship means a lot to him ("you're my everlasting friend") and he misses her and wants to see her again ("still missing you" and "Will you be coming home?").

    "an icing drip below your lip": possibly refers to the icing on a wedding cake, i.e., she recently got married to someone else

    "we undo the math": "the math" is 1+1=2, i.e., forming a couple, which they have undone.

    "delay the hurtful/mournful words of complicated overcast": He's expecting her to say that she no longer has romantic feelings for him, but is asking her not to, so as not to spoil him talking to her as a friend.

    "Please take the message that I'm picking up my chin at last.": He was hurt by losing the relationship, but wants to assure her that he's regained his confidence and will be ok without her.

    "So we would stay up late...Our hands would hold and not let go": reminiscing of the way their relationship was a year ago

    "A teardrop drip below your lip...beside the airport gate": refers to their sad goodbye

    I interpret this as the follow up to Hate Me. Once she has moved on (and no, despite what you might have seen in the video, Hate Me is NOT about his mother, it is about his ex) the singer is telling her that even now that they are not together he wants the best for her and will always appreciate the her and consider her a friend.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
