I Wanted You Alive

While you were laying there crying

Wondering if anyone on this planet loved you;

I loved you.


When you sat in your truck

In the middle of the woods

Holding that gun;

I wish you would have called me.


The times you thought you were failing

Life was falling apart;

I wish you would have called me.


When she decided she didn’t love you

And it made you feel so worthless;

I wish you would have talked to me.


Now we can’t talk it out

We can’t make it right

You made a permanent decision

One rainy night.

I wish you would have

Just picked up the phone

Let me come get you

Take you home.

Now I cannot dry your tears

I can’t take any of it away

I’ll never hear your voice

And I really want to today.


I wanted you to be okay

I wanted you alive.
