Tim wrote this song a little more than a year before he passed.  He knew his friends were heavy into heroin, and I'm guessing this was meant for them. 

 

Failed



All this time we didn’t know what you were doing

You had a Good life gone the day you left us

Good night close those eyes forever

Close those eyes forever

Never to wake up!



Now you’re gone it’s not the same

We don’t know who is to blame

All the thoughts of losing you

Makes us feel like we failed



Feel the sting feel it go right through you

With all the pain was it really worth it

The vacant chair this life feels so empty

It feels so fucking empty

Everyday!



Now you’re gone it’s not the same

We don’t know who is to blame

All the thoughts of losing you

Makes us feel like we failed



Now you’re gone we will never forget you

If we have known we could have saved you

All this time we didn’t know what you were doing

Could anyone have saved you?

God I pray


Now you’re gone it’s not the same

We don’t know who is to blame

All the thoughts of losing you

Makes us feel like we failed



Good bye close those eyes forever, Close those eyes forever, Close those eyes forever

JoAnn, Maybe it was the first time he had ever tried huffing.

Dear Vickie - I read your post today, and it really hit home.  I had one child, Tyler, who passed away on 01/26/10.  He died from using inhalants (computer gas duster).  Up until three weeks before his death, no one, not his parents, his girlfriend, his friends, knew he was doing this.  It is unclear to all of us when he started and how long he was using.  He was a college graduate w/ a dual degree in Philosophy & Theology, a member of his church who had gone on numerous mission trips, a great friend, a caring & loving person.  He had a beautiful girlfriend, wonderful friends and parents who loved him more than life.  He would stop on the side of the road to pick up a dying bird and pray over it.  He would help people who needed work done on their homes because they couldn't afford it.  Just like your son.  Why did he do this?  We have no idea.  We are only left to wonder what we could have done differently.  Maybe they were just too loving.

Your son's song just went straight to my heart.  I couldn't have said it better myself.  And I understand your position so well.  He worked in my company and I found him dead in the rest room there, so I always wondered what people, including my relatives, thought about him knowing how he died.  But I have found that they just loved him for who he was, not how he went.  I know my mother tells people he had a heart problem, so clearly she is ashamed.  I just tell people it was an accidental overdose.  You should not feel even the slightest bit guilty for leaving that event.  I frequently just avoid going all together - it's just easier that way.  Certainly not weddings or events like that.  I will get together with my sisters and their families, but have no interest in many other things like seeing my husband's relatives.  I just feel like an alien in those circumstances - I look like everyone else, but I am not. 

My son played guitar also, and was planning on playing bass in his best friend's new band that summer.  They were going to go on tour.  Is there music along with the words?  I printed the lyrics & will be saving them - they mean so very much to me. 

Please know I will be thinking of you and your son, and praying for you both.
