Exactly one year ago today, the “Friends Or Enemies” tour featuring Set It Off, Barely Blind, and With The Punches wrapped up in New York City.

Where are they now? Check out:
Barely Blind “Love! (Isn’t Everything)” & “Nature of the Beast”

Tonight I realized you’re no good for me
Just like they’ve been saying
We were never meant to be
I tried so hard to show you everything
You didn’t want to see
You’d only give to you who you need
And now I feel I’m wasting my time on you
I open my eyes to see my own life
What the hell was I thinking?

I’ve been running around in circles
You could’ve pulled me out
Oh why didn’t you pull me out?
And I’ve been waiting on you for so long
But you had to let me down
Oh why did you let me down?

I’ve got no regrets only my goals
And trusting you has shown I’m better off alone
I’d spend more time waiting for things
To change but you’re already gone
I wish you would of let me know
And now I feel I’m wasting my time on you
I open my eyes to see my own life
What the hell was I thinking?

I’ve been running around in circles
You could’ve pulled me out
Oh why didn’t you pull me out?
And I’ve been waiting on you for so long
But you had to let me down
Oh why did you let me down?

I never thought we’d grow apart
I never felt a change of heart
You wore me down and let me go
I feel like you’re running away
I feel like I am on the chase
Just to say what’s on my mind

I’ve been running around in circles
You could’ve pulled me out
Oh why didn’t you pull me out?
And I’ve been waiting on you for so long
But you had to let me down
Oh why did you let me down?
