We lose a man every day ,
Someone loses a friend ,
Brothers , Fathers , Uncles ,
To the world it's just one more person ,
But to one person that man was everything ,
A childhood friend from down the street ,
Someone who was hard on you always ,
Every day we lose something ;

A life us short and we take it for granted ,
Some live it fully ,
Others full of regret ,
We are sad today for a man we've lost ,
We regret today for our pain ,
Tonight we'll pray ,
We'll speak to a God about our loss ,
We will weep for a man today ,

To the man we cry for ,
We love him and we will miss him ,
Forever in each heart he'll remain ,
His stories his words his voice ,
As for each heart you've touched ,
We'll carry you forever ,
To the man we have lost today .
