Elliott’s Song

Woke up this morning yeah yeah
With a pain in my chest
Someone called to tell me “Baby, Elliott’s dead”
Pull the covers back over my head
In disbelief
Gonna try to put my little self
Back to sleep
But images of him bleeding through
Was this all I could do?

Baby goodbye, baby goodbye
No one knows the reason why
Baby goodbye

I drove over to his place
Sat on my tears
Till I could see his face
Pictures and candles empty bottles
And my dried tears on the ground
The guy taking my picture
Did not make a sound
The writing on the wall
Telling the world you’re missed by all

Baby goodbye, baby goodbye
No one knows the reason why
Baby goodbye, Baby goodbye Baby goodbye

Just don’t trivialize this
Don’t condescend me
Don’t tell me everything
Happens for good reason
Good reason, good
Cuz there’s no good reason

For saying goodbye
Way before it’s time
Your star had not enough light
Left to shine
Something with you dies in us
There ain’t nothing like suicide for serious
