I got the letter back
Saying I can come and see you
I really don't have time
But promise that I'd come and see you
You're setting far away
But do you know I sometimes need you
I know that you deserve time you got
Of all the people
I know you never bend
Even in the strongest wind
I really wish to every God
That you were innocent
I'm happy and I'm proud
That I can still call you my friend
I hope you read the letters and the magazines I've sent
You' ve got your head up
But I don't have my whole tide
I know that you are a good man
And that's what brings the tear to my eye
Unlike

Ohhhh...
I hope you know that you are not alone in that hell
And there ain't
No
No one can change it
No one can do it better but yourself

I was sixteen and we used to roll together
You told me back then
That I was meant for something better
You know when my life
Nothing is going to chance but the weather
It seems it been forever since we really stucked together
I'm living a crazy life and wish that you could see it too
See a thousand people sing my song from me to you
Every time I sing it, you know I'm bleeding too
Man, I accept the ways you are
And I don't need the truth
I got my head up
But I ain't got my whole time
See, I know you're the good man
And it brings the tear to my eye
And I've lied

Ooooh...
And hope you're not alone in that hell
And there ain't
No
No one can change it
No one can do it better but yourself

I reminisce to back then
When it was you and I
Smoking big fat blonds
Driving, moving ahead
They tried to get you down
But you refused to die
They tried to give to angel wings
But you refused to fly
You'ld rather stay in Hell
And take your time in jail
They are only punishing the soldier you will never sale
We both know that we owe nothing to each other
But can you blame me for loving you as if you were my brother

Ooooh...
And hope you're not alone in that hell
And there ain't
No
No one can change it
No one can do it better but yourself

Ohhh
And hope you're not alone in that hell
And there ain't
No
No one can change it
No one can do it better but yourself
