This song is dedicated to Laura.

I wrote this song upon hearing a friend go through a painful tragedy and a sudden loss. I hope it can provide some solace to those who need it.


I know it hurts, but please don't add onto it
I can't pretend to know what you are going through
It's never easy going on when you feel like there's no way out

All things will leave just as soon as they arrive
There comes a time when we must learn to say goodbye,
So please just promise me you'll live
And keep the light inside your eyes

Our hearts and minds will always keep them with us
A laugh, a smile: memories of who they really are
Pieces of who they'll always be
They'll never go while you're alive
