Another Day Gone By

I don't get much sleep.

I wish that I could leave.

It feels like I can't breathe.

A ghost I want to be.

I wonder if other people feel,

This way that I always will.

All I wish is to bring back you.

Your death had us feeling blue.

But it's just another day gone by.

God please tell me what I'm supposed to do.

Lord you know my minds confused.

The tears wouldn't let me see.

Without you we're not a family...

Who else will fell the pain I know.

Hearing about the murder of your big bro...

Now gang violence breaks my heart in two.

All I want back is you.

But all this wishing, is just another day gone by...
