Never once did he believe
That he was ever
Anything but invincible
Until he got the call
She was driving down I-5
She went past that dividing line
The police report said she lost control

What can I say
To ease the pain?
I never lost someone so close to me
Let me know just what you're going through

Not enough time
Not enough time
Just a screech of the tires
And a flash of the headlights
Lamenting people stand to the side
Eighteen is way too young to die
I'm not about to take this lightly
I'm not about to let the world keep turning
She was your blood
I am your brother so talk to me

What can I say
To ease the pain?
I never lost someone so close to me
Let me know just what you're going through
Talk to me
I've got time
When you're ready

Wick burst into flame
With the book of matches
He carries in his hands
Our lives begin
And just like this candle
We illuminate the room
And burn with purpose
To shed light on a darkened world
We burn with purpose
As we dance in the stale air
And that wax melts slow for the most of us
Keeping a steady, healthy flame
The wind turns some of us to smoke
Be prepared to give your life away

What can I say
To ease the pain?
I never lost someone so close to me
Let me know just what you're going through
Talk to me
I've got time
When you're ready
Talk to me
I've got time
When you're ready
