Sitting on a park bench Thinking about a friend of mine He was only 23 Gone before he had his time It came without a warning Didn´t want his friends to see him cry He knew the day was dawning And I didn´t have a chance to say goodbye
In this life I loved you most of all What for? Cause now you´re gone and I have to ask myself What for?
What for? Driving down the boulevard Thinking about a man I knew He was like a father to me Nothing in the world that he wouldn´t do Taught me to respect myself Said that we´re all made of flesh and blood Why should he be treated differently Shouldn?t matter who you choose to love
People pass by and I wonder who´s next Who determines, who knows best Is there a lesson I´m supposed to learn in this case Ignorance is not bliss
Have you ever watched your best friend die (what for) Have you ever watched a grown man cry (what for) Some say that life isn´t fair (what for) I say that people just don´t care (what for) They´d rather turn the other way (what for) And wait for this thing to go away (what for) Why do we have to pretend (what for) Some day I pray it will end
I hope it´s in this life I hope it´s in this life time [repeat]
