In your face
I see a glimpse of heaven
with a reserved place
you stay with me forever

everyone needs a friend
one who will help them bend
around the chaos inflicted here
school, homework, smoking, beer
the drama, alone, is too much to handle
I am like a dying flame of a black candle
I linger for a while
trying to run the last mile

I stop to rest
like a loner while life moves on
not many stay behind to rest
with me at this bench I sit upon
but someone stayed along
and that's enough to help me carry on
throughout my days as an outcast
I put my thoughts in the past
I'm going to finish this marathon
I'm going to carry on
