We were ready for anything

Everyone knows some pain
I see the loss every time someone says your name
When you know someone who shines hard
A soul of the age who doesn't care who the fuck you are
You had a friend, a brother who was everything
But he had to go away....that was yesterday
I've lost a lot of people in my time
The good, the bad, the unreal, and the ones who shine
So I know you all understand when I say that until they left
We were ready for anything...but this

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone -
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone -
We have this light you gave to us

Now it's time to, lay to rest our friend
And through these songs
His memory will never fucking end
We will see that
Through this loss we'll shed some light on you
Until the day you left us

We were ready for anything...but this

Why'd you have to go? We never had a chance
I can't believe it so I won't admit it
Life ain't shit without you in it

Everybody says the light that shines the brightest burns out fast
But what they never say is all the light they gives us lasts
We hold the memories and cherish everyday we had
But we would give it up in a second just to have you
