Broken Son

lyrics

It was such a tragic moment
The loss of my best friend
But I swear I’ve done my best
To make you smile and keep you safe

As your life became so awful, when your parents separated
And your heart’s been torn apart, I was trying to be there
I remember that cold winter day on December 1994
We were playing together in your basement,
Like we’ve always done before
And suddenly we heard your mother's cries in the living room
Then your father slammed the door without turning back
you knew that he would not be coming back

In that moment, I didn’t get the meaning of her cries
And the reason why he left but when I saw your face,
I started to realize that soon you would move from this place
And our friendship would never be the same
That day I lost my friend

That day you lost your family with that perfect happiness
That day I felt so lonely because we’ll never meet again

I know that every winter sadness still remains, and I’ll remember
As the first snowflakes fall on our hometown
That you and I used to be friends
The good moments that we have spent
We laughed, we cried, we hoped and dreamed
But everything has to end up against our will
We made a promise to ourselves that one day
Our paths would cross again

Two days later,
When your mom packed the last few things from your house
I saw you escaping from the window of this sinful home,
I saw you running faster
Like you didn’t want to miss a new departure

The more that we love, no matter who we are
We have to expect to destroy someone else
