Life can change in the blink of an eye
You don't know 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 bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

This son of mine will leave in the fall
New friends might ask why he stand 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 bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
