When the gravity let you go
couldn't you stay by my side?
Or take me on your last ride
into the bright light
and never say goodbye?

Then the message came to say
you were on your last leg today
no hope or wonder;
just shame and melancholy
But did you really have to go that far away?

I will see you, and you will say
that your hero couldn't stay
But we shared good times and pain
and had the same name.
Did you have to fall so far into the gray?

For Shawne Marie Clifford
