Back when we were still kids
I would never have thought
That we'd end up in this situation
How could the days
Where we just played
Turn into tears of shame so hot
That you would run
Before we've begun
To see
What the world outside
Offers you and I
Now we'll never find out
I wish we had

I’m not sure what we did
To make you run away
But I’m sure it was something awful
Cause
You always smiled
Despite all the cruel
Things that this world's given you
I’m shamed
It took your death
To comprehend
Your intents to please us all
Weren’t because you wanted
To be the one praised
You only gave

Every song that you've sung
Is a special lesson
I will never forget
That my life's in your debt
Every droplet of blood
Every eyelid that floods
Will be you living on
One day they will listen to

Every word that you've said
As they climb into bed
With the night in the sky
You’ll whisper lullabies
Into their restless ears
And they'll shed with their tears
All the day's pain away
Your dreams will someday come true
