I didn't know him
I wish I did
But know he's dead
He was a nice kid
He got good grades
He was the quarter back
But all he lacks
Is a sense of judgment
So he got on the bike
Without a care or like
And he crashed and burn
And now its his turn
To go to heaven

Chorus: Why do these things happen to ordinary people
Why do these things happen at all
So ask yourself
What would you do
If your best friend died in front you
In front of you?

The boy that died
Everyone that ever saw him cried and cried
But only if he hadn't got on that killer of life
He might have had a wife
He could have been so much
But he's dead
And all that's left is his head
That's deformed
So this is the end for him

Chorus: Why do these things happen to ordinary people
Why do these things happen at all
So ask yourself
What would you do
If your best friend died in front you
In front of you?

Are. I. P., Marshall,
That was his name
He even played a good football game
In heaven he will be
Waiting patiently for all to see
Bye-bye Marshall, I wish I knew
Who, you were

Chorus: Why do these things happen to ordinary people
Why do these things happen at all
So ask yourself
What would you do
If your best friend died in front you
In front of you?
