The Soul of a Friend

The Soul of a Friend

Verse 1
She's lying in the coffin, face so pale
I never thought death would prevail
Her hands are folded lifelessly
Her parents hold hands and cry quietly 

Chorus
I should've told her
I should've explained
Just Who loved her
Who called her by name
But I spent so much time
Rehearsing the lines
And never saying them...
It cost the soul of a friend.

Verse 2
Reading the Bible, I'd always assumed
Had to mean Jesus had saved you
But her journal told otherwise
How she thought God was all a lie

Chorus
I should've told her
I should've explained
Just Who loved her
Who called her by name
But I spent so much time
Rehearsing the lines
And never saying them...
It cost the soul of a friend.

Ending
I whisper when no one can tell
"My friend, did I help buy your ticket to hell?" 

The End
