ITIS DEAR JOHN LYRICS

Dear John, it's been awhile since you've been gone
Hope time's been kind, and given you peace of mind
Dear John, I'm still here, and every year
It gets much harder trying to seek what I must find
Should I have gone with you, my friend? And if I had...
Tell me who then would ask the questions others choose to leave behind

Dear John, I sure could use your inspiration
To cut through the complications of the day
Your voice was so much louder than the ones who were much prouder
Even though they had less to say, I wish that you could break the silence that he
Sentenced you with violence, even though your dream was love will save the day

It's not the destination but the journey that I fear
All the pain & desparation ringing louder every year
And the harder that I try, the more my self gets in the way
Dear John, it's getting tougher every day

Dear John, in closing I would like to tell you

That the system here that fell you is still growing and now way out of control
All the love has turned to hate, All the hope has turned to fate
And happiness has no place to go
I guess what I've been trying to say is that you're...
...better off this way, take care, goodbye, but know I miss you so


It's not the destination but the journey that I fear
All the pain & desparation ringing louder every year
And the harder that I try, the more my self gets in the way

Dear John, it's getting tougher every day

Gone in the blink of an eye...why?
