If my heart was still alive

I know it would surely break

And my memories left with you

There's nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing

What it leaves behind is hard

You know the sleeping feel no more pain

And living, all are scarred

To everyone

To all my friends

I love you all

I have to leave

These are my last words

I'll ever speak

And they'll set me free

So as you read this know my friends

I'd love to stay with you all

Please smile, smile when you think about me

My body's gone that's all
