Younger - Ruel




The Experience: You and me were so, so close and maybe that's what hurts the most it's out of my hands... When you've lost a friend and there's nothing more you can do...

Music video: Two best friends part ways when one of them goes down the wrong path: theft and gangs. That's when Ruel bails - he's not down for the bad. His friend goes further and further down that path and further and further from Ruel. Until a chance encounter at a party brings them back "together" - Ruel defends a girl from his unwanted advances. That's the trigger that brings his friend back from the edge. The video ends with them sitting on the same bench, watching the same planes taking off. Side by side.

The Meaning of Younger: Friendships die. That's a fact. A painful one. No matter whose fault it was - maybe no one's. It especially hurts when there's nothing you can do to bring it back. The lyrics end with that pain, although the video offers hope for reconciliation.

Ask yourself: Do you realize how fragile even the best of friendships are?

LYRICS:


You and I used to walk the streets at night
Our parents didn't know
Kept the TV going
Left on all the bedroom lights
And no I haven't seen you since
We lost all our innocence
You left me in the dark
While you drink in the park
Never be the same again

You and me were so, so close
Maybe that's what hurts the most
It's out of my hands
I've done what I can
So I just save my breath

Deep in my heart I
Know that it's over
Deleted your number
So I can't call you
Call you my brother
The way that we used to
When we were younger, younger

I saw you just the other night
I didn't even recognize you
Find it kind of strange
Guess that people change
But I didn't expect you to

You and me were so, so close
And maybe that's what hurts the most
It's out my hands
Done what I can
So I just save my breath

Deep in my heart I
Know that it's over
Deleted your number
So I can't call you
Call you my brother
The way that we used to
When we were younger, younger

Tryna get in touch with you
I don't know where you've been
Have a conversation
But you'll never let me in
I've tried, I've tried
I've tried with you a thousand times

Maybe I don't have to play the bad guy in the end
'Cause I've been trying hard enough to be a better friend
I've tried, I've tried
But we're out of time

Deep in my heart I
Know that it's over
Deleted your number
So I can't call you
My brother
The way that we used to
When we were younger, younger
