Friend, Please Lyrics

I feel for you but when did you believe you were alone
You say that spiders crawled inside and made themselves a home
Where light once was

Petrified of who you are and who you have become
You will hide from everyone, denying you need...

    I think that its about him, because as we all know, Tyler was suicidal at one point and didn't think that he would make it past 18. I think that he wrote this for people that are going through a really rough time, and thinking about taking their own life themselves, and he wants to make sure that you guys know that you are NEVER alone. To be honest, his music has saved my life more then once, so when I'm sad, i just listen to him, and the lyrics, because they mean something to me. STAY ALIVE FRENS!!

    It's a beautiful song that he is telling his friend that he knows he wants to take his life and tyler says he will miss him a lot and that he can trust tyler always and he is trying to make his friend to don't do that and he says to not take his life cause something is gonna come up and he will always be there for him into they see the light its just beautiful.

    its a second person pov, meaning Tyler is talking to you directly. He's attempting to prevent people from killing themselves I think.

    i think once again it is to do with preventing suicide. but i think that Tyler is talking to the listener and saying that he is their friend and he will stay with them no matter what:"Cause I just won't let go 'til we both see the light". i also think that Tyler maybe talking to himself from the past telling himself that he can get through the tough times because he found the light at the end of his tunnel but the past him just needs to keep looking for it

    I think this song means well I think it means something different to everyone who listens to it. I cry every time I listen to it because I look at myself from the outside because at one point I wanted to my suffering and then I met my friends and they helped me and were the first true friends I have had they accept me and are my family and the reason wam alive. Also this song to me, means everything. To all the outcasts stay alive and stick with your friends. #FRIENDSSAVELIVES

    Someone has a friend who doesn't want to live anymore but the person won't let their friend leave. They do what a BEST FOREVER WON"T LEAVE YOUR SIDE friend does. They check up on them. "Tell me your plans tonight" they won't leave until their friend is out of a state that we all at least once experienced.

    In my opinion, Friend, please is a song about someone that has a friend. And that friend wants to end their life because of the struggles they have to deal with. And I believe that Joshua Dun wrote this song for Tyler. Tyler had a rough childhood as far as we think we know. And since Tyler never thought he would live past 18, Josh was probably upset to hear that Tyler wanted to end his life. So it makes sense that this song was dedicated to Tyler and made by Josh. THIS SONG ALSO SLAYYYYYS MY LIFE |-/

    To me, this song is very clearly about a situation where someone is depressed. I believe everyone has different opinions on what a song means because of experiences. It could be a friend that's depressed(Friend,Please) or maybe looking back at a younger depressed self. But either way, it's letting them know you love them or care about them and making sure they're okay.
