"God Only Cries" as written by and Tim Johnson....
On an icy road one night
Young man loses his life
They mark the shoulder with a cross

And his family gathers 'round
On a piece of hallowed ground
Their hearts are heavy with their loss

As the tears fall from their eyes
There's one who'll always sympathise

God only cries for the living
'Cause it's the living that're left to carry on
And all the angels up in Heaven
They're not grievin' because they're gone
There's a smile on their faces
'Cause they're in a better place than
They've ever known
God only cries for the living
'Cause it's the living that're so far from home

It still makes me sad
When I think of my granddad
I miss him each and every day

But I know the time will come
When my own grandson
Will wonder why I went away

Maybe we're not meant to understand
Till we meet up in the promised land

God only cries for the living
'Cause it's the living that're left to carry on
And all the angels up in Heaven
They're not grievin' because they're gone
There's a smile on their faces
'Cause they're in a better place than
Oh, they've ever known
God only cries for the living
'Cause it's the living that're so far from home

Yeah, we're so far from home
