Evening news

I never knew what you believed in
I hoped and assumed it was for the good
You surprised all of us with your headlines
Doing what we never thought you would

When I heard your name
When I saw your picture on the evening news
Nothing will ever be the same
Life is measured by the roads you choose

At first I didn’t believe the rumors
Certain there must be some kind of mistake
But the evidence was stacked against you
And you weren’t around to claim your fate

When I heard your name
When I saw your picture on the evening news
Nothing will ever be the same
Life is measured by the roads you choose

Looking back I never found a clue
Of a hidden life lived by you
Made me doubt everything I knew
Tore my trust of what I thought was true

Many years later your memory lingers
Still wondering what went on in your mind
Done passing blame and pointing fingers
Seems the punishment fit the crime

When I heard your name
When I saw your picture on the evening news
Nothing will ever be the same
Life is measured by the roads you choose.
