Sitting on a park benchThinking about a friend of mineHe was only 23Gone before he had his timeIt came without a warningDidn't want his friends to see him cryHe knew the day was dawningAnd I didn't have a chance to say goodbye
In this life, I loved you most of allWhat for?'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myselfWhat for?
What for?Driving down the boulevardThinking about a man I knewHe was like a father to meNothing in the world that he wouldn't doTaught me to respect myselfSaid that we're all made of flesh and bloodWhy should he be treated differently?Shouldn't matter who you choose to love
People pass by and I wonder who's nextWho determines, who knows bestIs there a lesson I'm supposed to learn in this case?Ignorance is not bliss
Have you ever watched your best friend die?(What for?)Have you ever watched a grown man cry?(What for?)Some say that life isn't fair(What for?)I say that people just don't care(What for?)They'd rather turn the other way(What for?)And wait for this thing to go away(What for?)Why do we have to pretend?(What for?)Some day I pray it will end
I hope it's in this lifeI hope it's in this life time
