Lyrics
God, it was so hard to see
Streakin across a Texas sky
Those shooting stars were more than space debris
I hung my head and cried

He was a man, an exceptional man
Who dreamed of healing and of flight
I last saw Dave it was August and
We all told stories through the night

He said this journey was what he was born to do
Chased his dreams with a passion
Is there anything so true

I sat alone with the TV on
Watching that tragedy unfold
Could not imagine that they all were gone
Before their story could be told

Before he left he really didn?t know what to expect
I hope he knew how proud we were of him before he left

Remembered back to the years we shared
And how we spoke just months ago
How we should let someone know how we care
Each time we let the other go

He said this journey was what he was born to do
Chased his dreams with a passion
Is there anything so true

He said this journey was what he was born to do
Chased his dreams with a passion
Is there anything so true
