    Lyrics

    He was fourteen years old
    All his life he never left
    The west side (oh)
    I walked past him everyday
    Heading downtown
    Always on the go
    He was the kind of guy you never gave your real name to
    So young but still trying to game you
    But what he was going through
    I never knew

    It's such a shame
    How people change
    And I never really knew his name
    But it takes more than two to raise a youth
    And for that we all did lose
    Because if one of us had noticed you
    How I wish I was there for you
    I was busy filling my own shoes

    All his life
    He heard "You won't amount to nothing"
    Low expectations
    In need of money
    Few too many choices
    And no patience
    So what do you know
    For a good cash flow (oh)
    You can always sell
    It's easy to fit the role
    But when your living the fast life
    He considered all times a go

    Its such a shame
    How people change
    and I never really knew his name
    But it takes more than two to raise a youth
    And for that we all did lose
    Because if one of us had noticed you
    How I wish I was there for you
    I was busy filling my own shoes

    His dad hardly came around
    For his child he worn out
    Cause he left him with bruises
    His words just abusive
    The love he didn't show
    And what his boy was going through
    He had never imagined
    But when love turns to hate
    It's the worse out of passion
    His son was bold
    And by then it was too late
    From his friend __________ (?)
    Then his hands, his shoes
    The life or death the trigger'd hold
    Oh...
    Two seconds cold
    He was fourteen years old
    Locked up until he's old

    Its such a shame
    How moments change
    And I never really knew your name
    But it takes more than two to raise a youth
    And for that we all did lose
    Because if one of us had noticed you
    How I wish I was there for you
    I was busy filling my own shoes

    How moments
    How moments change....
    I wish I could turn it all around (noticed you)
    We all did lose
    I wish I was there for you
    I busy filling my own shoes
    And two seconds can change a whole life
    Well, three strikes your out
    I'll tell you when it's all over and down
    We all did, we all did lose
    We are reflecting you...
