You died just getting on with your life
Wasn’t drugs, a car wreck, or a knife
Your pride could override all
So strong you just couldn’t fall
Simple self-neglect killed you
But I’m guilty of some too
Carrying that guilt from now on
Who would have guessed you’d be soon gone
Knew you’d forgive – time to burn
Calls not returned
A legacy of loose ends
Not resting easy my old friend

The buddy I left behind me
A living, breathing memory
Six hundred miles not as far away
As six feet of dirt between us today
Life for you was never dull
I know you’d hate this deadly lull
Heavy silence muffling a cry
Begging for another try
Rest in peace they all say
I can’t imagine you that way
But I’ll come to say let it be
Remembering the lesson you taught me
Because I’ve at long last
We’re all strong as iron, fragile as glass

It’s much too late to ever show how much I care
Once a solid friendship is now a strange feeling in the air
I never wanted to make this boast
But now I can say some of my best friends are gone
We thought we’d watch each other’s lives run on
Didn’t really miss you old friend ‘til you were dead and gone
Used to be one of those things I feared the most
But now I can say some of my best friends are gone
