Letting Go

Fill me up with tears, fill me up with pain.
A life is so simply taken away, when we all play this dangerous game.

So many times the fear had shown through, so many times we didn't know what to do!
We take our chances in the end, whether we make it, it all depends.

Walking down the street, sitting down at home in your favorite chair,
Why do bad things happen to good people, how come things can never be fair?

A close friend, a mom or dad,
Does it even matter who's taken, the pain we've gone through the pain we've had?

How do you explain, how can you even comprehend? I know i can't and that's what happens when you lose a friend.

But you lose more, you lose something inside you never knew was there.
You lose them, then yourself, you could be brought down too and not care.

It hurts, it kills, but that's the way it's going to be. You have to be strong, you have to believe, you're the only one who can get you through to see!

Life goes on around us; would they want you to cry?
Everything happens for a reason, even when still, the tears fall from your eyes.
