This always makes me cry...

-How do you get that lonely by Blaine Larson-


It was just another story printed on the second page
Underneath the Tiger's football score
It said he was only eighteen, a boy about my age
They found him face down on his bedroom floor

There'll be services on Friday at the Lawrence Funeral Home
Then out on Mooresville highway, they'll lay him 'neath a stone...

How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad
To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all
Is better than the life that you had
How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go
How do you get that lonely... and nobody know

Did his girlfriend break up with him, did he buy or steal that gun?
Did he lose a fight with drugs or alcohol?
Did his Mom and Daddy forget to say I love you son?
Did no one see the writing on the wall?

I'm not blamin' anybody, we all do the best we can
I know hindsight's 20/20, but I still don't understand...

How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad
To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all
Is better than the life that you had
How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go
How do you get that lonely... and nobody know

It was just another story printed on the second page
Underneath the Tiger's football score...

This is what makes me question life, people, and why they hurt... It's one of the things that opened up my eyes and made me see that I should really start to care... who knows, maybe one day I could reach out and care for someone I don't even know, only to find out that they had been planning to kill themselves when they got home. Who knows, maybe I could save a life... though I do know one thing, I won't be able to reach anyone unless I reach out and care about them with Jesus's love.

keepin' it real,
quiet.life
