I try to sleep but my eyes are open
I can't think cause my heart is broken
And there's a bottle right next to me
I'll down a few drinks just to take the pain away
I wanna say all the things I need to say
I won't lie, I'll just tell them honestly
If God can take a friend away from me
Then I can say all I want and he won't do anything
My tongue is weak and every time I try to speak I can't say nothing at all

Sleep well, my friend
There will be another moment we'll meet again
Just let it go
Sleep well, goodnight
You're something to remember
I wish that you were here by my side

I spend hours tryna make it through the day
I don't know if I'll ever be the same
It's hard enough when you're all alone
In the city that you love, now Atlanta's just a burial ground
My tongue is weak and every time I try to speak I can't say nothing,
Nothing at all
It's hard to think when losing someone only make you wanna scream
And now that you're gone

Sleep well, my friend
There will be another moment we'll meet again
Just let it go
Sleep well, goodnight
You're something to remember
I wish that you were here by my side

Rest in pieces, I can't believe this
A mother shouldn't witness her son die at twenty-four
(Please take notice, these words are hopeless.
It's ripping me apart and I can't take it anymore... )
I will hold my tongue for the rest of my life
I can't keep this up anymore

Sleep well, my friend
There will be another moment we'll meet again
Just let it go
Sleep well, goodnight
You're something to remember
I wish that you were here by my side

By my side (x3)

Sleep well, goodnight
You're something I'll remember
I wish that you were here by my side

    To be honest when my 3 friends died last year (are. I. P andrew, tara, cody) at a young age I honest felt and said this song before I even heard it. Especially "if god can take a friend away from me, then i can say all i want and he won't do anything". I miss them so much it drives me crazy.

    To me this song means a lot. When my best friend died 8 months ago at the age of 14 our parents would always say we would grow up together and we would end up together forever. And we both felt the same way. When she died. I remembered how she showed me this song a few weeks before the car crash. And I felt exactly how this song makes everyone feel when they listen to it.

    This song is obviously about someone who died "a mother shouldn't witness her son die at twenty-four" and his heart is broken from it, and doesn't really know how to cope "I'll down a few drinks just to take the pain away." the person must have been close to him, maybe he was family or a good friend "it's hard to think when losing someone only makes you wanna scream." I love this song, it's one of my favorites by them. Mayday is amazing, keep up the good work.
