When

When

When?
Words & Music by Steve Siler

I thought you were safe
in a warm, peaceful place
Surrounded by the comfort of my love
Then it suddenly turned
I heard the awful words
I lost you before your time had come
Then the dream became a nightmare
and joy became despair

‘cause you were part of my life
and I was part of your death
and everyone thinks that its over
But I’m not over you yet
When will that day come?
Never my son

There was no one I could tell
who’d understand how I felt
I was isolated in my pain
The world carried on
But part of me was gone
Now I carry this shadow of blame
Why couldn’t I throw you a lifeline?
I feel like I did something wrong

‘cause you were part of my life
and I was part of your death
and everyone thinks that its over
But I’m not over you yet
When my tears run out of water
I’ll be over you daughter

I need friends who will sit with me and listen
I need friends who will sit with me and cry
I need friends who don’t need easy answers
Who are OK with why?
‘cause you were part of my life
I was part of your death
and everyone thinks that its over
But I’m not over you yet
When will that day come?
When will tears run out of water?
When will I see you smile?
In heaven my child
