Life can change
In the blink of an eye
You don't when
And you don't know why
Forever young
Is a big fat lie
For the one who lives
And the one who dies

I watched my son
Shovel in hand
Go from bullet proof boy
To a full grown man
The cool dark dirt
On the casket lands
19 years old and he's burying a friend
Oh, goodbye two boys
Hello, one man

This son of mine
Is gonna leave in the fall
Some might ask
How he stands so tall
His life was changed
With a telephone call
Not even he understands it all

I watched my son
Shovel in hand
Go from bullet proof boy
To a broken man
The cool dark dirt
On the casket lands
19 years old and he's burying a friend
Oh, goodbye two boys
Hello, one man
