"Dearest Friend"

VERSE ONE

They told me time was of the essence,
like the sentiments we mumble while we count away our seconds,
and life was moving faster than death was ever expected,
till it showed up uninvited and left us alone with less friends...
Too many times I know I've felt this kind of stress before,
so many answers that I still don't have the questions for,
I drain the bottle now until there's nothing left to pour and beat my broken heart against my ribs until my chest is sore.
I'm in denial and alone,
like how I wanna hear your voice and try to dial up your phone and I can't smoke away this pain you see me hiding in my bones,
It'd be a lie to say I even fuckin smile when I'm stoned but,
you can't replace the irreplaceable,
the same way you can't evade the unescapable,
I know you're gone but they can't take away an angel's soul I hope you're watching over I just wish there was a way to know.

VERSE TWO

Dearest friend,
you're gone but not forgotten,
in these memories you left me to get lost in more than often,
I'm reminded of the price we pay for loss and what it costed,
you're path became my own when I was lost enough to cross it...
And you were just as scarred up as I was,
burning bright,
the same way a falling star from the sky does,
we helped each other finally put the hardship behind us,
so easy to hate the world but it makes it harder to find love...
I know I could've been a better friend and I still wish I had the chances that I'll never get again,
you always had my back until the motherfuckin end,
that's why you're still alive inside of mine and all I've ever been but,
you can't replace the irreplaceable,
the same way you can't evade the unescapable,
I know you're gone but they can't take away your angel's soul I hope you're watching over I just wish there was a way to know.

VERSE THREE

Thanks for the love you've given and lives that you left inspired by it,
for your heart of gold and the times that I tried to idolize it,
for every moment I lost faith,
you revitalized it,
you left a light that will shine forever,
alive and vibrant.
You gave me strength when I was helpless,
the definition of love for the one who had never felt it,
thanks for giving yourself in a way that was so selfless,
thank you for still believing in me when nobody else did...
And I can see you in heaven now,
laughing at all your haters who try to call you a legend now,
you'll be my family forever so don't you ever doubt that I love you and I wrote this out of love so I could let it out but,
you can't replace the irreplaceable,
the same way you can't evade the unescapable,
I know you're gone but they can't take away an angel's soul I hope you're watching over I just wish there was a way to know.
