they say
they say the good die young
but why does it always seem
that the good are the only ones
they say
that you’ve gone to a better place
but why is it a better place
if I can never see your face

I had to watch it
Eat away at you
(I couldn’t stop the pain)
Your soul burned strong
As your body began to lose
(this was a fight that was rigged from the start)


Forever young the good die
Frozen in time
They can’t lose their innocence
It’s not ok it’s not right
We shouldn’t have to say
Goodbye
Before we’ve lived our lives
Young, Now your young till the end of time
Young
Why’d it have to be you?


The flame flickers
But it’s forever burning
(Will not go out)
It’s still a nightmare
When I close my eyes and see
You in my mind
(no)

I see lying there
With the tubes trailing from your veins
The hiss of the ventilator
Your life is watts and volts
Dependent on the a system
Unable to go alone

Forever young the good die
Frozen in time
They can’t lose their innocence
It’s not ok it’s not right
We shouldn’t have to say
Goodbye
Before we’ve lived our lives
Young, Now your young till the end of time
Young
Why’d it have to be you?


I wish I could turn back time
And take back anything I said
That made you wanna cry
If I could spend one
More day with you
I sit there by your side
And talk straight through the night

Young
The Good Die
Forever young the good die
Frozen in time
They can’t lose their innocence
It’s not ok it’s not right
We shouldn’t have to say
Goodbye
Before we’ve lived our lives
Young, Now your young till the end of time
Young
Why’d it have to be you?

WHY WHY WHY
WHY’D IT HAVE TO BE YOU?
WHY WHY WHY?
TELL ME
WHY DID GOD CHOOSE YOU?


ok so the song is not finished but its gonna be like an uptempo rock song. idk how to describe it. its gonna be influenced by killswitch engage's "this is absolution" but i don't think it will be that heavy vocal wise. idk yet. im just wondering what the thoughts are on the lyrics for right now
