For Tim

Don't want to smile
If I can't see you smile back.
Don't want to laugh
If I can't hear you laugh too.

We're trying to convince ourselves
that you'd want us to power on
to forget what happened yesterday.
But we know that if you were one of us,
if you knew Tim,
You'd feel the same way.

So surf our tears brave angel
ride the waves that we cry
take our sadness as a gift
we're trying to say goodbye.

We knew you lived life like there was no
But we never thought it would be true.

You fitted a whole fucking lifetime
into 18 years
you had no time to waste.

Now surf our fears sweet angel
ride our braves as we try
to live our lives like you would,
never letting your spirit die.
