-Verse 1-
Met a bum from the city of brotherly love
He moved south a few years ago
Had a wife kids and a nice house
Made a good living teaching bright young minds to grow

One fall after class was done
A kid pulled his card so he pulled his gun
See he left his nerves deep in the jungles of Nam
Now his job and his kids and his wife are gone

-Pre-chorus-
What a life
What a waste
What a shame

-Chorus-
What he lost he could never find
What he said he could never take back
What he did he could never change
What he knew he could never forget

What he lost he could never find
What he said he could never take back
What he did he could never change?
What he knew he could never forget
Never Forget

-Verse 2-
I heard about a junkie strung out from youth
The tracks on his arms told the tales of abuse
See his drug of choice was just getting high
Then he found religion and he changed his life

After four years sober started leading a group
Showing those like him how to find the truth
Then one night on a downtown high rise
Took his last hit and he tried to fly

-Pre-chorus-
-Chorus-

-Bridge -
Skeletons that we all hide
Buried deep within
Often they will come alive
Become our own demons

Skeletons that we all hide
Buried deep within
They come alive, they come alive
Become our demons

-Guitar Solo-

-Pre-chorus 2 (2x)-
Skeletons, Demons

-Chorus (2x)-

-Coda-
He could never forget
Never forget
