Johnny was a high school star
Always thought that he'd go far
When you thought he had it made
He had the girls and had the grades
Something Johnny did not have
Is someone to make him laugh
His life was far from made
The truth is he's afraid
To face the world the alone
It was never thought or known
Never said and never shown
The thoughts he had inside
Forced him to say goodbye
And I'll never forget that night
The night that Johnny took his life
and left his friends and family behind
How could we all be so blind
We should have saw the signs
If Johnny just could know
We can't stand to see him go

There wasn't anything he could not have
Any goal he could not grab
Any person he can't make laugh
Any friend he never had
Didn't think it was that bad
How could something go so wrong
To someone that seemed so strong
Guess the road just seemed so long

He's the one that always seemed so proud
The one that always talked so loud
The one that held his head up high
I can't believe it's time to say goodbye
Tears are running down his parents eyes
Friends together as they start to cry
Why did you have to take your life
And leave the rest of us behind
