HIS NAME WAS SEAN

HE WAS A NICE NEIGHBOR, AS FAR AS WE COULD TELL
THEY SAY IF YOU COMMIT SUICIDE,YOUR SOUL WILL GO TO HELL.

I THINK HE MUST HAVE HAD SOME HERE ON EARTH,YOU SEE,
NO-ONE SEEMS TO KNOW JUST WHY ,HE DIDN'T WANT TO BE.

HE WAS YOUNG AND GOOD LOOKING  AND HAD FRIENDS GALORE
BUT HE HAD MONEY PROBLEMS ,KNOCKING AT HIS DOOR.

IT MAY HAVE BEEN A LOT OF THINGS, WHO ARE WE TO SAY
SOMETHING PUSHED HIM HARD ENOUGH, HE COULDN'T FACE ANOTHER DAY.

HE WENT TO VISIT HIS DAD JUST BEFORE THINGS GOT SO BAD
WHAT AN AWFUL WASTE OF LIFE, IT MAKES ME FEEL SO SAD

BUT GOD IS A FORGIVING GOD HE KNOWS THE REASONS WHY
WHATEVER HAPPENED IN HIS LIFE TO MAKE HIM WANT TO DIE.

I CAN'T BELIEVE HE'D GO TO HELL, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND,
THE GOD WE KNOW IS MERCIFUL  HE'D TAKE HIM BY THE HAND

AND LEAD HIM INTO HEAVEN , INSIDE THE PEARLY GATE ,
AND GIVE HIM PEACE AND COMFORT, IN THE ARMS WHERE ANGELS WAIT.
