What Happened James?

 
James was as serious as you
Nobody's patsy, nobody's fool
But nothing made much sense
Nothing with a consequence
Never to the ones it mattered to

Everything was right, and that was what was wrong
A young man grown tired of what he knew was strong

What Happened James?
Look what you've been dealt?
Do you need somebody's help?
How can we explain?
What happened James?


James was a boy you'll never know
Forever friendly, but just for show
A little bit confused
But easy, win or lose
Thought he had it all, all on his own

Nothing he can't do, nothing he wouldn't do
It felt like something that he always knew

What Happened James?
Look what you've been dealt?
Do you need somebody's help?
How can we explain?
What happened James?

James is much the same today
dust and ashes, withering away
just like all the rest
something more, something less
Just another anybody's guess

Everything was right, and that was what was wrong
A young man grown tired of what he knew was strong

What Happened James?
Look what you've been dealt?
Do you need somebody's help?
How can we explain?
What happened James?
