the ones left behind lyrics – beverley mitchell

fast asleep and dreaming
woke up, to the phone ringing
looked at the clock, and i braced myself
it can’t be good, at 4 am

[chorus:]
there is no reason
why bad things happen to good people
i’m gonna hold on, even though, i wanna lose my mind
but i gotta stay stong, for the ones left behind

i’ve got memories of a smiling face
nothing can fill, this empty sp*ce
there’s no making right, what went wrong
cherish what’s left, and try to move on

[chorus:]
there is no reason
why bad things happen to good people
i’m gonna hold on, even though, i wanna lose my mind
but i gotta stay stong, for the ones left behind

every night i say the same soft prayer
watch over the ones that i love
then i woke up, to my worse nightmare
still i gotta have faith, in the one above

[chorus 2x:]
there is no reason
why bad things happen to good people
i’m gonna hold on, even though, i wanna lose my mind
but i gotta stay stong, for the ones left behind
