A father paced outside where his son was laid to rest
He cried about the short life that he never got to live
A tear for everytime that he held him back from life
A tear for everytime he had nothing left to give

He knew his best was all he could afford
He felt as if a part of him had died that night
In his heart he was a failure, he had let him slip away
The rain beat on the window sill, he only knew to cry

Sometimes we don’t know why
And we ask ourselves the same
So many times we try to see
But we can’t understand

I don’t know why the sky is blue
Theres no easy way
I promised you a future
But I’m sorry not this time

The days went by like sand pouring through an hourglass
I slept through most the summer cause my princess did the same
Sometimes the dreams were good, the nightmares were too real
I got so sick of playing that I gave up on her game

She passed away one morning in the middle of july
I held on for dear life but her last words were of me
“I’m sorry for the pain and I never meant for this,
don’t give up on your dreams and live your life for me”

Sometimes we don’t know why
And we ask ourselves the same
So many times we try to see
But we can’t understand

I don’t know why the sky is blue
Theres no easy way
I promised you a future
But I’m sorry not today
