No Hero

Here are some lyrics from a sad song that's been rattling around in my head.
I should have known you went through it alone
I wonder why did you even try?
You could have come to me
I would have helped you see
You could have found a way to carry on
Second guess
Did I do my best?
There was a friend I had...

Johnny's strange behavior was a tip-off, they say
But I ain't no fucking savior
I'm just living day by day
The Offpsring deliver this sadness with their characteristic ferocious intensity. If you don't listen to the lyrics, the song is very angry. I think that goes along with the guilt and blame in it, but I always hear the loss when I listen to this.
