We were ready for anything!
We were ready for anything!

Everyone knows some pain
I see the loss everytime someone says your name
When you know someone who shines hard
A soul of the age who doesn't care who the fuck you are
You had a friend, a brother who was everything
But he had to go away...that was yesterday
I've lost a lot of people in my time
The good, the bad, the unreal, and the ones who shine
So I know you all understand when I say that until they left
We were ready for anything!
We were ready for anything!...but this

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone
We have this light you gave to us

Now it's time to lay to rest our friend
And through these songs
His memory will never fucking end
We will see that
Through this loss we'll shed some light on you
Until the day you left us

We were ready for anything!
We were ready for anything!...but this

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone
We have this light you gave to us

Why'd you have to go? We never had a chance
I can't believe it so I won't admit it
Life ain't shit without you in it!

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone
We have this light you gave to us

Everybody says the light that shines the brightest burns out fast
But what they never say is all the light they gives us lasts
We hold the memories and cherish everyday we had
But we would give it up in a second just to have you
Back!

    General Commentit's just a good song and a good way to mourn being either the writer or listener
