Gone But Not Forgotten

we put you on a pedestal not thinking you may fall
you gave us all you had and left nothing for yourself
you were always there for us 
but we were too blind to see the pain you felt
too late to save you but we'll keep your memory alive

treated like a god but used by the followers
your voice spoke for us all but we never even thanked you
we took more than we should have 
never knowing of the pain we caused you
another hero fallen, gone but not forgotten

you felt like you'd let everybody down 
if you stopped playing the role we created just for you
so you kept on doing what we wanted you to do
but you should have walked away from us all
you would have found happiness if you looked for it

another hero fallen, gone but not forgotten
treated like a god but used by the followers
a voice that spoke for us all 
but we never even thanked you
we took more than we should have 
never knowing of the pain we caused you
another hero fallen, gone but not forgotten

you were too young to die but had a life too tough to live
so we had to say good-bye but your memory will live on
another hero fallen, gone but not forgotten
