Can't Save Everyone

How could I forget about you?

You’re there no matter what I go through

I guess our conversations are one-sided

But you keep me sane when I’m misguided


But you’re getting sick and getting old

These days you aren’t nearly as bold

But I know that we still have some time

Or at least we would were it not for the dime


I tried to bring you with me

To brighten up my day

I thought I could convince them

That you were worth the pay


Maybe I could have fought harder

But I turn away and you’re gone

And all I can hear are the words

You can’t save everyone


Your mother well she claims to grieve

Yet I don’t think she really believed

That your life is worth as much as ours

She figures you’ll get sick again in an hour


Apparently she was a Nihilist

Perhaps there were clear signs I missed

If only my life wasn’t in this spiral

This goodbye would not have been final


I tried to bring you with me

To brighten up my day

I thought I could convince them

That you were worth the pay


Maybe I could have fought harder

But I turn away and you’re gone

And all I can hear are the words

You can’t save everyone


I tried to bring you with me

To brighten up my day

I thought I could convince them

That you were worth the pay


Maybe I could have fought harder

But I turn away and you’re gone

And all I can hear are the words

You can’t save everyone
