"Real Life" as written by and Neil Thrasher Jim Janosky....
I was young, he was old
An' we both were the same age
Everyday, playin' fetch
Shakin' hands, he'd lick my face

And I was unaware
The day would come
An' when he died, for the first time
I knew what real pain was

And I never was the same again
From that moment on, real life began

Senior high, girlfriends
Football games, graduation
Summer break, spend my time
Fillin' out applications

A few superficial years went by
They were all a blur
And in the most unlikely situation
There you were, yeah

And I never was the same again
From that moment on, real life began
With you, with you

By your side, scared to death
Felt the pain you were fightin'
Placed my palm on your head
Spoke your name, just keep tryin'

An' then you closed your eyes
An' took one last breath
And when it was over, you looked up
Laid our baby across your breast

And I never was the same again
From that moment on, real life began

    General CommentThis song always makes me cry so bad! Espesially the part that goes:

    By your side, scared to death
    Felt the pain, you were fighting
    Placed my palm on your head
    Spoke your name, just keep trying

    I know it might be about different things, but I'll always think of it as my dog's song.
