[Verse 1]
When I heard that you'd died
I was stabbed inside
I'll never be the same again
I've lost a stranger yet I somehow lost a friend
Even though I never knew you
From the moment I heard I knew
So short was the passage between life and death
That I needed some time to take a breath
So young girl this song's for you
And your life lost, so young, so new
And you never realised
That so many would lose their sleep tonight

[CHORUS]
So don't tell me
Not to cry
'cause I'm hurting
Inside, outside
Young girl, you're to young to die
I heard your ambition's high
Now look me in the eye
And tell me that I shouldn't cry

[Verse 2]
I was there from the start
When I heard, I gave my heart
I can't connect how I feel
With what happened, or what's real
You felt the fear and then the blow
You couldn't say goodbye before you go
I can't sweep aside what I feel
I can't sweep aside, it's so real
The cruel world let you die
So why do I feel like I shouldn't cry
I was choked up inside
The day that you died

[CHORUS]

I'm feeling like I've got no right
When there's others who won't sleep for nights
I'm feeling like I'm daft to feel this way
But I can't hold it back another day
These tears, this song's for you
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To let you know I care
But a stab to my heart unprepared
Left me feeling outta life
The day that you died

[CHORUS][x2]

Every time I read those words
My heart gives in
I'll never get over it
It won't kick in
That you're gone
I'm sorry that you're gone
