CRY FOR YOU
© Margaret MacDonald 2006


Sixteen winters gone, just like that
Should’ve been more like 65
You weren’t old enough to know that much
Just old enough to drive

I will cry for you
So many things you didn’t get to do
I will remember you
Always

All your troubles gone, just like that
Got a little drunk and you made ’em laugh
Threw back a couple of pills, out of control
You were dancin’ into black

I will cry for you
So many things you didn’t get to do
I will remember you
Always

I’d trade everything I’ve ever had
Do anything to bring you back
In my dreams you’re safe with me
Your smiling face is all I see

I can’t do much of anything, it’s just no use
Now that you are gone
I just sit here wondering
What more I could have done

I will cry for you
So many things you didn’t get to do
I will cry for you
So many things you were meant to do
And I will remember you
Always
