"I don’t know if Taylor knows this…I wrote [On the Mend] while he was in a coma from an overdose. It’s about Taylor. I never told him it was about him, hell no. It’s my love song to a dying best friend. We have never ever, ever even gotten close to having that conversation. I don’t want to talk to him about that, I want to talk to him about other shit.” - Dave Grohl

"I don’t want to know that shit. I really don’t. Unfortunately that is going to be a part of my story forever, something that happened in my late 20s through being an idiot. Some things are better left unsaid as far as I’m concerned. It’s sweet, I suppose, but I could have gone my whole life without knowing it." - Taylor Hawkins

Wake me when the hour arrives
Wake me with my name
See you somewhere down the line
We’re tethered once again

Close your eyes and stay a while
Take me when you go
