As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I take a look at my life, and realize theres nothing left.
My dad went away when I was only nine,
I didnt have as much as a dime.
My mom went away when I was eleven,
I knew one day, Id see them in heaven.
I was too busy looking into the future,
To see what was in front of me, now theres no cure.
I know you cared, I know you tried,
But nothing could help me when I fell down and died.
Im sorry I didnt watch,
You were nothing but a blotch.
Im sorry I didnt listen,
When you smile it seems to glisten.
I look now at my life and all I see is you,
I wish I could go back, looking brand new.
But I cant go back, now that Im dead,
One of my gang members shot me in the head.
I dont know why it struck a nerve,
When they said theyd get you to come and serve.
They drug me into an alley and shot me right there.
My eyes remained open, like transfixed in a stare.
Now I look from heaven and see you all there,
watching me in a casket, candles making a small glare.
Im sorry I did it, because now Im away from you,
Im going to heaven, where the sky is always blue.
Im sorry I never said I love you,
Now I can, though you only hear it inside of you.
I love you, and Ill see you soon,
Because when you die, we walk the alley together, under the blue moon.
