I thought about you all day long
And I knew I had to write you a song
But what good are words when they don't justify how you feel

I don't have that much I can give
But I'll write you this song you can cry to
And I hope that it wraps you in love like a hug on the neck

Are we dreaming

What happened to the playgrounds that we played in
Who ever thought this was the world that we saw back then
What happened to the times when we never lost a friend
And no one had to ask, are we dreaming

I still find it hard to believe
That every time we turn on the TV
Our hearts seem to drop to our feet as we look at the screen

Nothing fills the void of this loss
No question we answer can fix this
And throughout it all we will find out who we truly are

    General CommentObviously, as the title states, this song is about the Virginia Tech massacre that took place on April 16, 2007. Ryan really shows a lot of lyrical talent in this song in my opinion, and the video for the song (on his YouTube page) really shows how truly affected he was by this event. The song was written from Ryan's heart and really shows how something even far away, like the Virginia Tech incident, can change our lives.
