Changed It All

Looking back on all the untimely deaths
Of all the celebrities we grew to love
I guess all I am saying is:
If there was a way I would have changed it all

I could have prevented Ronnie Van Zant and his band
From boarding that beat up old airplane
That not only killed himself and injuring his friends
But leaving behind so many good things that were ahead of him and his career

I would have tried to make Chris Farley
Check into a rehab center
So he wouldn’t have died
From taking all those drugs and alcohol

I would have tried to convince Selena
That Yolanda was a dangerous woman
So she wouldn’t have gotten shot
And had to leave this world at such a young age

Phil Hartman, John Lennon, Steve Irwin,
Heath Ledger, John Belushi, Michael Jackson
It seems the names just go on and on
Even though we can never bring them back

We could have made an attempt
To try and have changed it all
