Bang!



Can you explain to me
Why you ended with a
BANG! BANG! BANG!

Cause I can't see
Why it had to be
Your smiling face
had to end this way

I saw you die with a
BANG BANG BANG

So I cry
Far into the night
I cry

My laughter was spent at the end of your life.
And I can't see you any more
So far below my feet
Nothing of you left

I don't understand
why all that is left of you
is a stain on my clothes.

A
BANG BANG BANG
Took you away

No smiles are left of that day
All I can do is cry
because of a
BANG BANG BANG

I can't even remember your voice
and I feel guilty for it.
Your embrace is gone
and I can't feel the warmth on my skin
I feel guilty for that too

Why
Are you gone?
