The words rang a few bells, reminding me of my dad.
One moment he was safe and sound
The next one they laid him to the ground
And they called it fate
To which we men are bait
Sometimes life without them is impossible
Fate taking them away is unforgivable
And it’s like nobody cares
When you’re lost in one of your worst nightmares
Nothing’s forever maybe you can pretend
For the beginning of everything there is an end
Once a man has crossed life’s stages
He becomes one with the ages
At one point we’ve got to move on
This one life isn’t for long
Don’t ever think they’ve just disappeared
They’re right there in your every tear!!
