Song Description

This tune was written for a young friend and neighbor who left us way too soon. We all grieve in our own way. Writing this helped me.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this tune as a tribute to a young friend and neighbor who left us way too soon.

Lyrics

I Guess I'll Never Know
© JD Carroll/Creative Ventures Music, Inc/ASCAP

Where did you go since I last saw you?
Where have you been for so long?
When we last spoke you only talked of home
Where did you go?
I Guess I'll Never Know.

Orion left in early spring round midnight.
Guess he got a better gig on the other side.
Think I heard him say he'd be back again someday
on the radio.
I Guess I'll Never Know.

Chorus:
I'll pray for you, you pray for me.
I'll play that melody that you like.
This old guitar can sing like it did way back when
but I always thought I'd see you one more time.
Yes, I really thought I'd see you one more time.

Some questions will go unanswered.
Sometimes it's best not to speculate.
Like that time we tried to fix your car
It just wouldn't go
I guess we'll never know.

There are times when we find trouble
And sometimes it just finds us.
Still we dance along the razor's edge like we won't get cut
Where did you stumble?
I Guess I'll Never Know.

Bridge:
Oh, I turned around and you were gone.
I never got the chance to say goodbye.
Just when it seemed you found a song to sing
your music stopped and I'm left to wonder why.

I'll pray for you, you pray for me.
I'll play that melody that you like.
This old guitar can sing like it did way back when
but I always thought I'd see you one more time.
Yes, I really thought I'd see you one more time.
