Losing A Light
At Chamberlain on the road back home
I got the call that you were gone
I knew youíd leave me here someday
But to hear the news blew me away.
Itís a colder world you leave behind
You werenít one in a million, you were one of a kind
Loved by everyone you knew
I canít believe your journeyís through.
Through all your years we shared our lives
The ups and downs on that road we ride
You were more than a blood and a club Brother man,
You were just like my son, you were my best friend.
It broke your heart when I did time
For being selfish, drunk and blind
But still youíd come to visit me
And through your eyes I learned to see.
I wonít betray what you believed.
You always showed your pride in me,
A thousand people told me so
You took me everywhere youíd go.
I close my eyes and I have to laugh
Your sense of humor was a masterís craft
You made me see Iím worth a damn
You shaped me into who I am
I could never count the lives you touched
The ones Iíve met you moved so much
I look around this room today
At all these friends and see their pain
I also know the fight you had
As your body went from good to bad
But you never let it dim your light
Thereís a bright new star in the sky tonight
Your last few days were spent with those
You missed the most, you loved and chose
You came home happy and went to sleep
Something in you felt complete
You broke the lock that held you here
Iíll see you in a few more years
With two of us inside this vest
Iíll ride for both of us, I guess
Thank you Tony for the honor of being your Brother.
There will never be another like you.
I Love You
Goodbye for nowÖ.
