It was just another story written on the second page Underneath the Tiger's football score It said he was only eighteen, a boy about my age They found him face down on his bedroom floor There'll be services on Friday at the Lawrence Funeral Home Then out on Mooresville highway, they'll lay him 'neath a stone How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all Is better than the life that you had How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go How do you get that lonely, and nobody know Did his girlfriend break up with him, did he buy or steal that gun? Did he lose a fight with drugs or alcohol? Did his Mom and Daddy forget to say I love you son? Did no one see the writing on the wall? I'm not blamin' anybody, we all do the best we can I know hindsight's 20/20, but I still don't understand How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that bad To make you make the call, that havin' no life at all Is better than the life that you had How do you feel so empty, you want to let it all go How do you get that lonely, and nobody know It was just another story printed on the second page Underneath the Tiger's football score

Wildchild from Christchurch NewzealandThis reminds me of my cousin who commited suicide in 2018 and a few family and friends that also did including my grandma who did after a still birth in 1965
Esther Kads from UgandaThis is a very powerful song and I listen to the song almost all day and I keep recommending it to my friends.
But still I can't tell as well how someone so young as such can get that lonely to the point of suicide. The Lord's hand is not too short that it can't save and there is no situation that is permanent. I love the song .
Shawnee from Bellmont, IlI've thought about committing suicide, but then I thought about my two nieces. The thought of never seeing them get married one day stopped me from thinking that dangerous thought.
Misty from Inverness, FlThis is such a powerful song, it is so sad and scarey to me because I have a 15 year old son. I hope that if he ever feels like this he can come to me to talk.
Dontavious from St Simons, Gai love his song i can listen to it all day long i do computer work at school and listen to this song all day
Jessica from Wapanucka, OkI LOVE THIS SONG. EVERYTIME I LISTEN TO IT I CRY. I CAN LISTEN TO IT ALL DAY OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS SONG. I LOST ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS. HE WAS LIKE IN HIS 20'S. SOMEBODY PUT DRUGS IN HIS DRINK. AND IT KILLED HIM.. I STILL MISS HIM, SOMETIME I WISH I WAS WITH HIM.........
Landon from Winchester, OhThe lyrics of this song are depressing, but so powerful.
