Standing By The Grave (lyrics)


Standing by the Grave of my best friend
Why did her life come to an end
Wish the rain would fall so I could cry
My feelings for her will never die
Just another statistic in county hall
Her name's on file marked crime unsolved

My family came to help pull me through
Helped me say goodbye to one so true
For eighteen years all our lives we shared
Nothing left unsaid nor feelings spared
Just another statistic in county hall
Her name's on file marked crime unsolved

Chorus

Hit and run driver what were you drinking
To take a young life without even thinking
Hit and run driver can you hear me bawling
It's raining now and my tears are falling
Standing by the Grave of my best friend

My mom and dad are both still alive
Standing by the Grave of my only child
A single stone in an old family plot
By us she will never be forgot
Just another statistic in county hall
Her name's on file marked crime unsolved

Chorus

Hit and run driver what were you drinking
To take a young life without even thinking
Hit and run driver can you hear me bawling
It's raining now and my tears are falling
Standing at the Grave of my best friend

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
