Another Friend Left Town Today

Another old song attempt, posted as a poem...a bit dark, but not too bad...

Another friend left town today,
Left this world quietly with nothin' to say.
Don't matter whether it was a shot in the arm or a shot in the head,
The only thing matters is another friend's dead.

Hook:
Another friend left town today,
Another friend with nothin' to say.
So many words that will never get said,
Just another friend that ended up dead.

Time goes on and I examine my soul,
I take a close look inside and count the holes.
There's a darkness inside but I laugh and joke,
Or knock it back with a drink and a smoke.
Another friend left town today,
Another friend with nothin to say.
Another friend with nothin to say.
