She was the reason
He forgot the season
And made his way under the rain
Just to say "I love you"
His heart was stolen

It's been over a decade now
Two kids and a pet to show
A life of bliss it was

A drunk truck driver
Drove him to his end
His life was stolen
In a bus taking him home

Then the sands provided a covering
Until nothing was left to cover
His body was stolen
By the Earth he once walked on.
