  • Ten years ago
    I got a call that nearly killed me
    Repeat yourself, my hands are shaking

    When I was told my friend was gone
    I felt so guilty
    A thousand questions left unanswered

    (I'll bleed if you want me to!)
    I'll serenade before I do
    (I'll bleed if you want me to!)

    On and on, although you're gone
    Candles burn without a flame on
    Our final call to you, I know you're listening
    How could you leave us that way?
    Where did you go, ten years today!

    Ten years ago
    I stood beside the wood that held you
    I must sit down, my legs are shaking

    We let you go
    With gifts of plectrums for your journey
    And melodies to help you on your way

    (I'll bleed if you want me to!)
    I'll serenade before I do
    (I'll bleed if you want me to!)

    On and on, although you're gone
    Candles burn without a flame on
    Our final call to you, I know you're listening
    How could you leave us that way?
    Where did you go, ten years today!

    I'll bleed if you want me to
    (I'll bleed if you want me to!)
    I'll bleed if you want me to!

    On and on, although you're gone
    Candles burn without a flame on
    Our final call to you, I know you're listening (I know you're listening)
    How could you leave us that way?
    Where did you go (ten years today!)
    Where did you go (ten years today!)
    Where did you go
    How could you leave us that way?
    Where did you go, ten years today! Writer/s: JASON JAMES, MICHAEL PAGET, MICHAEL THOMAS, MATTHEW TUCK
