This song written in remembrance of a family member who committed suicide just after graduating high school.

lyrics

IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT

In the heat of the night the boy took his own life.
His family & friends & foe will never know what tore his soul.
Now melancholy memories survive.

Pressures mounting everywhere he'd contemplate the modern dare
To pull the plug, he wasn't scared to die.
He had no crowd, low self esteem so sensitive at seventeen
Emotions kept concealed, no one knew why.

Mom & dad had done their best to give the boy their love and zest
But they themselves had needed rest that day.
For some the world is open wide but this boy could only run & hide.
The moment came for him to slide away.

In the heat of the night the boy took his own life.
His family & friends & foe will never know what tore his soul.
Perhaps they'll meet again some day in another world not far away.
And reconcile dejected thoughts of memories of years apart.
The mysteries of life remain, the answers lie within to ascertain.
