I had to tear my heart from my throat

As I walked by the mystery of you

You’ll never know this but I felt you

Absorbed part of your pain walking by

And I still carry it with me each day

A reminder of how hard life can be

You lying in the cold dark on pavement

Seeming to cry and scream at the underworld

I wanted to sit next to you, sing you a song

Or call someone smarter to help you some

But I didn’t stop because this was your fight

You were boxing with the devil, swinging hard

And I was a little afraid, a little bit on guard

I know what it sounds like to shout at God

I’ve fought my own army of demons

Nobody else could see or understand

I had to tear my heart from my throat

So I could say Give them hell young man

I really do hope you win
