Story Behind the Song

Mourning the loss of a friend who died of an overdose


Farewell To A Friend
by Andy Budd ? Copyright 2006 ? All Rights Reserved

Your tortured soul went home today
You tried for years but were always saved
By the intervention of well-meaning friends
Who couldn't understand your need for it to end
Didn't understand the aching in your heart,
or all those damn addictions that tore your world apart

I heard it was an over-dose ?
but I know it was the path you chose
You hated this world and livin' it,
too much pain you couldn't take another minute
The pain you caused the one's you loved
too much push, too much shove
Just couldn't take another minute of the pain,

Didn?t you know that suicide is selfish
and oh??so??...... unkind,
to those who mourn and knew you ...
To those you loved and left behind,
You chose to move on to another life
But I wish ??someone could've changed your mind

In my heart I know that you didn?t quit,
That you are just starting over
I hope you met Jesus when you knocked on heavens door
I hope you find the happiness you?ve been searching for,
I? ll say Farewell for now, but this is not the end
I?ll see you in the next life ????????????
My friend??.
