Early To Bed

Dan is gone with no regret

Blamed myself could not forget

His eyes were always reddened from the tears wiped from his face

I could never quite tell why he couldn't tell me

Where has he been

Was he hiding in the field waiting for night

So he could sleep underneath the stars

Now he sleeps in the skies

No more reason to hide his face

No more reason to block his eyes

Never told a soul why he couldn't resist the urge to cry

Everyone would just point and stare

Not a single ounce of care

In his head all he could see all the flashback memories

But nobody ever said a thing

Now he has his wings 

He watching down on everybody who never showed him a bit of sympathy 

Yet now they gather around his stone

And now they see what he had been through at home

Never too late to say sorry but it can be to early say good bye

Now they visit everyday

To try to understand his pain

Thirty years from now they'll still do the same

And every time they see a cry for someone to hear

They will try to hold him close 

Wishing it was Dan so they could help overcome his fear
