lyrics

Let’s start from the end, yup he’s dead. What’s wrong don’t want to hear the rest of my song, Come on! It’s a simple tale of trial and error, I’ll try to entertain ya I’ve been known for being clever-whatever. His name was Remi and hers was Rainey, the best of friends since they were in training pants-pants. I think they call ‘em Pullups, they’d play and dance they just love to act foolish.

And as they grew, so did their friendship separate worlds and attitudes, they never knew. He became afraid that she would go away and leave him here one day, what would he do?

He called her up and in his pimpest voice, the words he spoke in were of the pimpest choice. Yo girlie what’s good? We should hang sometime. Like Sugar Bear he loved to talk in rhymes. She replied that’s fine you’ve been in my mind, I’m glad you called we should kick it tonight. Yeah that’s right I knew we were tight. I’m going to the bluff with my friends you wanna ride? Aw shit, he didn’t expect, but what do you think? Of course he said yes! He couldn’t pass it up, a chance to connect with his other half she’ll him and forget about the rest. Tonight he’ll confess the feelings he’d possess. They’ll finally be together like even more than friends. Is this where the story ends? You already know. There’s more to go so just wait until you’re told.

And so he went. The bluff was their spot since they both were little kids. They called it home and said that this is where’d they live when they got big and now they are they’ve come this far it’s finally here there’s nothing left to fear.

When he got to the bluff Remi knew he messed up. He shouldn’t have come, there was nowhere to run. It was no fair no fun under the gun, he stood tall for himself, but it couldn’t be stopped. Dropped to his knees he didn’t beg nor plead, he accepted his fate like he knew his destiny. Death and he were meeting so violently that she couldn’t even stop it. Why Rainey save me? The last words were those over the cliff he would go. The others were laughing. No one will know. He’s not one of us he’s a mistake he’s a punk. Rainey was frozen she’d abused his trust. Why’d they attack she wanted to ask but didn’t have the courage she’d abandoned her half. He needed her then, she wanted him now. Still stuck in her tracks she slowly opened her mouth.

What have you done, I mean what have I done? I didn’t know this would happen, how could I have been so dumb? Remi can’t be gone, my love is too strong. What the fuck is wrong? Why can’t we all get along? I’m coming with you, I can’t live without you. That’s all that she wanted but now that it’s too little too late she’s feeling with hate, there’s no escape, he slipped through her fingers, it can’t be yesterday.

Their love was true. It’s too bad they never got to see it through. She never knew he wanted her she needed him they both were incomplete he went to sleep with the thought that she didn’t even care enough to scream.

That’s the way that it ends he died alone with no friends she would never forget even though she forgave the others, never turning them in. She couldn’t be alone so instead she just never left home. Her heart couldn’t love it just beat and pumped blood. Into the darkness too much to overcome, she sleeps and she waits thinking he’ll be in her dreams. She lays wide awaks still hearing his screams. So be true to love, or lie dead to hate, let’s all rise above, before it’s too late. So be true to love, or lie dead to hate, let’s all rise above, before it’s too late. So be true to love, or lie dead to hate, let’s all rise above, before it’s too late…………….
