He was violent and rebellious

He was never big onshowing emotion

His eyes were cold with a sense of reckless

He did not show respect or compassion


He was so tough, some labled him a hood

He was always causing trouble in town

Some even say he was misunderstood

When feeling dangerous, he can't be calmed down


Through all the hate, there is lovethat shines through

For Johnnny, his love will always endure

Now, the ice melts into soft shades of blue

But, all the loss in his life has no cure


A courageous hero, deep down inside

One boy's not enough, to keep him alive
