Young people die,
That’s how the story goes,
Everyone cries,
We are alone

People are scared,
They don’t know what they’re afraid of,
Most in this world are unaware,
That they are one that is loved

There are many things in life I don’t understand,
Like why people won’t help you or reach out for your hand,
There’s a gun in his hand and your vision goes black,
You’re dead before you knew you were under attack,
You have died so young for reasons no one is sure of,
Now you watch loved ones cry for you from way up above,
All because someone pulled the trigger,
He didn’t look you in the eyes; he didn’t even have the vigor

Why are children dying?
It’s something I don’t get,
So many don’t care and have stopped trying,
How can a killer feel no regret?

It’s true, there are those who are good,
There are others who are bad,
This world is so misunderstood,
Why does everyone always have to be so sad?


You didn’t deserve to die,
Why did he shoot you?
You didn’t get to say goodbye,
Why did he shoot you?
