He spent 18 years livin life to the brim,
he fought harder than men two times as strong
I don't think there was a day when i saw him complain,
somethin higher come and help me carry on...

He was more than a friend to all of us,
his selflessness was why he held on for so long
If im have the man that he was,
id be a man worth watchin' carry on

And i won't be fine but thanks for askin'
My heart is heavier than your lead
It don't seem right to trade a dollar for a dime,
Lord above why do you leave us all for dead?

He spent 18 years livin' life to the utmost,
shifted my entire paradigm
Not a minute goes by where i don't think of all those days
in that short lived 18 years careening by...

And i won't be fine but thanks for askin'
My heart is heavier than your lead
It don't seem right to trade a dollar for a dime,
Lord above why do you leave us all for dead?

And i won't be fine but thanks for askin'
My heart is heavier than your lead
It don't seem right to trade a dollar for a dime,
Lord above why do you leave us all for dead?

And i won't be fine but thanks for askin'
My heart is heavier than your lead
It don't seem right to trade a dollar for a dime,
Lord above why do you leave us all for dead?
