"Eiley" as written by and Erik Ron Travis Moore....
How can you say this was all part of your plan
Start explaining
Crafted from hope and hospital beds, she's gone
And honestly

You fed a dose of comatose to what I love most
Death is not a game with the ones I hold close
She was mine, mine, you can't deny
Three years is too quick to die

Take me instead, you only loved, I only consume
I'm worthless to the world, you're innocent and pure
God, why didn't you choose me over her?

Tell me she's listening as I search for signs
Of why I'm standing
Left with this hole, that six feet of dirt can't fill
So why don't you

Just look me in the eyes. Say it straight to my face
What type of man takes a girl from her place
She was mine, mine, you can't deny
Three years is too quick to die

Take me instead, you only loved, I only consume
I'm worthless to the world, you're innocent and pure
God, why didn't you choose me?
Take me instead, you only loved, I only consume
I'm worthless to the world, you're innocent and pure
God, why didn't you choose me over her?

So answer me, how am I supposed to deal with this
Why did she die, when I'm the one deserving it
And what the hell am I to tell my little sisters
To ease their tears when they tell me that they miss her
And what about my mother and my father
They lost a child and deep inside they whither
God, I'd do anything to ease the pain
That ripped through the chest of my brothers that day

She was mine, she was mine
What did we do to make you take her from our lives?
She was mine, she was mine
Oh God, oh what did we do?

Take me instead, you only loved, I only consume
I'm worthless to the world, you're innocent and pure
God, why didn't you choose me?
Take me instead, you only loved, I only consume
I'm worthless to the world, you're innocent and pure
God I question your judgment
You're innocent and pure, I'm worthless to the world
Tell me why you picked me over her
