i remember the way you smiled and cried.
you were down with me, baby, down to ride.
you always tried to make people enjoy life,
so much pain deep inside those beautiful blue eyes.
we was best friends. it was hard to be apart.
we would talk til the sunset way past dark.
every moment with you was a dream come true.
when i looked into your eyes i got so construed,
about to kiss you. your taste was amazing.
put us together and there was no constraining
the way we felt. i believe it was love.
if it wasn’t, i don’t know what love is but just rubbish.
and now it seems so surreal it ain’t real.
you ain’t never coming back cause satan did steal a life away from us.
i held you alone, it was so hard to watch you go, your eyes closed.
it was a cold night, no light, snow was falling.
i remember calling your name with no response,
and so i rode to your house just so i could say “hi.”
it was raining and cold, and dark outside,
but something was wrong. i saw the smoke at first.
my heart stopped for a second then i saw the burst of flame.
the cop cars and the fire trucks alongside the house
that me and you spent so much time together.
i started screaming, i don’t know what i said.
the cops held me back saying no one was dead.
i saw your parents alone. i looked for your blonde hair
and your pretty face, but all i saw was flames,
and then i saw the stretcher. they were running up the house
into the ambulance. i couldn’t see or make out who it was,
but i knew it was you. i just knew.
i fought and i pushed and i finally got through to you.
i held your hand. i told you,
“baby come back. don’t leave me now. i’m not ready for that.”
i think it took all your strength but you smiled at me and said softly,
“taylor, don’t wait for me.” your eyes looked into mine,
near shattered my mind, then just screamed as the paramedics tried to revive you.
but i knew those were the last words you would ever speak
cause your hand holding mine got weak
and past that all i know is that i cursed so loud
the heavens and h-ll had to close to shut me out.
they said you were dead. i tried to kiss you to bring you back but you were cold, your eyes shut forever in tack.
i had to say so much, now her pretty face is fading away.
so young and full of memories of lost days.
i couldn’t let go. they had to force me to do so,
so i saw her face one more time. i remember it forever ago.
