Before I hung up the phone, all I could hear/ was a dialtone ring in my ear.

I ran out the house and jumped in my car/ Just a couple of miles, you're not that far.

I love you-Please don't leave me/ my eyes are filled with tears, I can barely see.

I hope I'm not too late to show you that I care/ Just one more block, I'm almost there.

I jump out my car and race to your room/ hoping to save you from your doom.

I get there and I'm too late/ you've already chosen your fate.

suicide was not the way/ is that the price you felt you had to pay?

you were only seventeen years old/ with a life unlived and secrets untold.

you could have made a's and b's/ could have cured some kind of disease.

but now we'll never know/ because the love you needed, we neglected to show.
