I guess we played our last game,
But too much rhymes with your name
For me to go on my way and say nothing
I guess we ran our last race
But I’ve seen your face
So many places that I had to say something
About how I know how people fade
But even once I’m all gone away
Please don’t forget the words I say
I hope you remember what I said today

I hope you
Hold on, when the world gives you tests
I hope you don’t let you life get wrecked like I did
Like mine did
I hope you
Grow up, be one heck of a man
Change the world, ’cause I know you can
And I’ll be proud of you
Though I know I’ve got no right to be
And I hope you
Have a good life, a good life without me

On the day I met you
I needed someone to talk to
And I sure knew you were someone
And I remember your looks
How you said you liked my jokes
You’d always laugh and say, ‘That’s a good one’
And I know I didn’t mean that much
But you should know about the hearts you touch
I know I’m not the only one
But I might be the first to tell you with a song

I hope you
Don’t let them tell you how to run your races
Take your own steps, set your own paces, like you do
Like we used to
I hope you
Have dreams that you keep put away
I hope I see you in the papers someday
I’ll be looking
And maybe you’ll also see me
And have a,
Good life, a good life without me

[instrumental break]

We get lost, we turn up better
Stars cross, but some don’t ever
I’m glad I got to see you shine
For a little while
And someday, when they’re throwing you flowers
And someone says something ’bout chance encounters
I hope you think of me
And maybe smile

But for now...

I hope you
Get your school bag, and walk on home
Before bed, hope you check you phone
’Cause there’ll be
A message from me
It says,
‘Where there’s lightning, there’s always thunder
Don’t even ask how I got your number
But I hope you have a real nice life’

I hope that
You learn how, how to dance in the rain
I hope life gives you gives you more love than pain
Like mine did
Don’t cry like I did
I hope you
Find a girl, hope you laugh real hard
I hope you see the ocean and the Northern stars
And I’ll be glad for you
Even though I’ve got no reason to be
I hope you have a,
Good life, a good life without me

Have a good life

A good life without me

Please do,
Thank you

Have a good life

This is a song about a boy from my cross country team... he's a bit younger than me, so we were never involved, but he was terribly nice, so I decided to write him a song. PLEASE. LEAVE. COMMENTS.
