Why Lyrics

It must have been a place so dark you couldn't feel the light,
Reaching for you through that stormy cloud.
Now here we are gathered in our little home town.
This can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd.

Oh, why, that's what I keep asking.
Was there anything I could have said or done.
Oh, I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul.
God only knows what went wrong.
And why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song.

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old.
Rounding third to score the winning run.
You always played with passion, no matter what the game.
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun.

Oh, why, that's what I keep asking.
Was there anything I could have said or done.
Oh, I had no clue you were masking a troubled soul.
God only knows what went wrong.
And why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song.

Now the oak trees are swaying in the early autumn breeze.
The golden sun is shining on my face.
The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing
This whole world really ain't that bad of a place

Oh why, there's no comprehending.
And who am I to try to judge or explain
Oh, but I do have one burning question
Who you told you life wasn't worth the fight
They were wrong, they lied.
Now you're gone, and we cried.

'Cause it's not like you to walk away in the middle of a song.
Your beautiful song.
Your absolutely beautiful song.

My boyfriend had a cousin who commited suicide. He shot himself in the head. He was in the seventh grade....they think it was because of bullying.... No one should ever lose a 12 year old kid to bullying. Ill never forget seeing him in his casket, so young... It was horrible. RIP Noah Grawemeyer.

R.I.P. RYAN. If we had only known how bad it was for you. Your out of the pain now and away from the hell you were living with. If we had only known how bad you were being treated. WE love and miss U.

R.I.P. My brother Glenn. Not sure if it was suicide but that is what they called it. Only your wife knows what really happened....The truth will prevail one day and she will go down. Love you forever.

I heard this song many times in the past, after my best friend committed suicide the words of this song meant so much more to me and I could totally relate. I miss you every day my friend. R.I.P Tommy
