Tracy died soon after a long fought civil war
Just after I wiped away his last tear
I guess he's better off than he was b4
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here
I used 2 cry 4 Tracy cuz he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass U every day
I used 2 cry 4 Tracy cuz I want 2 see him again
But sometimes, sometimes life ain't always the way

Sometimes it snows n April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never-ending
And all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year
A time 4 lovers holding hands n the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
He used 2 say so strong unafraid 2 die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
Though staring at his picture I realized
No 1 could cry the way my Tracy cried

Sometimes it snows n April
Sometimes I feel so bad, yeah
Sometimes, sometime we wish that life was never-ending
(Sometimes I wish that life was never-ending)
But all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy's there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow
Maybe 1 day I'll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows n April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never-ending
But all good things, they say, never last
But all good things, they say, never last
And love, it isn't love until it's had
