Dedicated to my Uncle, Grandma and Gramps

lyrics

I don't talk to people about what i think,
when its family stuff i just hold it in,
but last year was my worst year
cause now there's three people i wont see again,
19 how could i forget my first family vacay in so long
and that last day at 4am when we packed up and sped off home,
and my mom cried then we all cried when my aunt told her my Uncle died
and i miss him and i wish that he was still right here by my Aunts side
but he loved us and we loved him and thats something that will not die
and he's watching over me right now with his grey beard and big smile
you know...

I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,
I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,

Back to school shopping with a close friend
getting all that i needed for res,
still remember the spot that i stood in
as i got a phone call that came from my sis,
saying "i don't know exactly what happened, but Grandma isn't okay"
so i left the store and i drove myself to the hospital half hour away,
and i asked the nurse where my Grandma was
and she told me that "she's not here"
then my sister called me a second time she was crying hard and said wait there
but i said no i know where to go, ill meet you guys at their house,
and in ten minutes when i walked in i felt so sick cause it sunk in,
and i saw her there and i held her hand,
couldn't understand why she was on the ground,
and i love her so much and miss her laugh and i pray to god
that i could have her back but she knows...

I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,
I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,

Just don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
Cause in time you'll find,
That we'll meet again, meet again,
So don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
And go on, and go on, and go on, and go on,

I can't say i know how to start but two months ago my Gramps died,
and the hardest part was seeing Nan holding his hand
sitting by his side, saying goodbye and i love you,
and i sat there and said goodbye too,
and thats the last time that i saw him as he lay in bed in that white room,
my idol passed away right then, my Grandfather and close friend,
but he lives on in the memories and the stories that i have of him,
and it was so hard for my family, cause thats three people in one year,
three people that we loved dear and i wish that they were still right here,
but time fly's and i've realized you have to go on to enjoy life,
and i love the people that helped me and my family through those hard months
cause they know...

I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,
I wish you didn't have to go,
but i know you're in a better place, better place,

Just don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
Cause in time you'll find,
That we'll meet again, meet again,
So don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
And go on, and go on, and go on, and go on,

Just don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
Cause in time you'll find,
That we'll meet again, meet again,
So don't cry, cry, cry it'll be okay, be okay,
And go on, and go on, and go on, and go on,

I wish you didn't have to go...
