Underneath the Tiger's football score
It said he was only eighteena boy about my age
They found him face down on the bedroom floor
There'll be services on Friday at the Lawrence Funeral Home
Then out on Mooresville highwaythey'll lay him 'neath a stone...
How do you get that lonelyhow do you hurt that bad
To make you make the callthat havin' no life at all
Is better than the life that you had
How do you feel so emptyyou want to let it all go
How do you get that lonely... and nobody know
Did his girlfriend break up with himdid he buy or steal that gun?
Did he lose a fight with drugs or alcohol?
Did his Mom and Daddy forget to say I love you son?
Did no one see the writing on the wall?
I'm not blamin' anybodywe all do the best we can
I know eyesight's 20/20but I still don't understand...
It was just another story printed on the second page
Underneath the Tiger's football score...
