I remember the smile on his face still so plain..

And the shock that it gave me when I heard angels came...

He wouldn't do anything to make someone cry...

Still the thought of his leaving brought a tear to my eye...

                                

                                                

And I guess Heaven needed a friend more than I...

I wish I could have told him goodbye...

                                                                   

Like birds of a feather, we were stuck tight as glue...

If he got into trouble, Then I was guilty too...

He taught me to laugh, When I wanted to cry...

He made me feel special; He was that kind of guy.

 

                                                                                     

 

And I guess Heaven needed a friend more than I...

I wish I could have told him goodbye...

                              

Now years have long past, And weakened my pain...

Sometimes I still shudder, When I hear his name...

Someday, Somewhere, Someone will cry...

Heaven must have needed, My friend more than I.

                                

  And I guess Heaven needed a friend more than I...

I wish I could have told him goodbye...

                              

 

Heaven needed a friend more than I...

I wish I could have told him goodbye .
